Recipe: Steak with Spinach and Blue Cheese

Ingredients :

  • 1 (1-inch-thick) boneless beef top loin (strip) steak (1/2 pound)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1 small shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Blue cheese
  • 5 ounces baby spinach (10 cups)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions :

  1. Pat steak dry and sprinkle all over with a scant 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Heat oil and butter in a 10-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until foam subsides, then cook steak, turning once, until well browned, 7 to 10 minutes total for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand, uncovered, 10 minutes.
  2. Add shallot to skillet and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add cream, blue cheese, and spinach and cook, scraping up brown bits from bottom of skillet and turning spinach with tongs, until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
