HOW TO MAKE BLUE CHEESE SAUCE
- Onion mixture: Add some butter, onion, salt, and pepper to a skillet over medium heat. Stir the onion mixture and cook until caramelized and softened. It should only take about 6-8 minutes.
- Sauce: Pour in the heavy cream and 1/2 cup of the blue cheese crumbles. Stir the ingredients together until well combined and cook for 3-4 minutes until it’s thickened. Turn the heat off the stovetop and stir in the remaining 1/3 cup of blue cheese crumbles before serving over steak dinner.
VARIATIONS ON BLUE CHEESE SAUCE
- Worcestershire sauce: For some extra tangy and savory flavor in your Blue Cheese Sauce try mixing in 1-2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce. Add in the sauce at the same time you pour in the heavy cream.
- Garlic: Adding in one minced garlic clove can play up the blue cheese flavors in the sauce wonderfully.
- Lemon juice: There are so many different flavors you can experiment with in the sauce. For a fresher, citrus taste try squeezing in some lemon juice. 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice should do the trick, and this flavor is great if you’re making the sauce in the spring.
- Cream replacements: If you don’t have heavy cream, there are a few replacements you can use. One option is mixing together 1/4 cup melted butter and 3/4 cup milk. For a thicker replacement is mix Greek yogurt and milk. Either of these will make a rich, creamy sauce.
