In a bowl, cream the butter until smooth Fold in the cheese, Worcestershire sauce and pepper (some chunks of the blue cheese should remain) Roll in plastic wrap or parchment paper and twist the ends to close If not using immediately, refrigerate (3 days maximum) or freeze (2 months, maximum) If frozen, thaw and cut into 1 1/2 ounce pieces and place on top of hot steaks
Blue cheese butter T & T
3 tablespoons softened unsalted butter 1 ounce crumbled blue cheese 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives 1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Mash together the butter, blue cheese, chives, and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper; set aside. Cook the steak on the preheated grill to desired degree of doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Allow the steak to rest in a warm place for 10 minutes before slicing thinly across the grain. Serve with a dollop of blue cheese-chive butter.
