Classic Cast Iron Skillet


Blue Cheese Butter

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Pinch of salt
  • A few grinds of black pepper


  • 2 strip steaks, 1 inch think
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cream the butter in small bowl, then add the blue cheese, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper, and cream again until smooth. Using a 12-inch piece of plastic wrap, spoon out the butter mixture and roll it up like a log, twisting the ends. Freeze the butter until firm*.
  2. Bring the steaks to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Gradually heat a cast iron skillet, then carefully brush the pan with oil.
  3. Season the steaks to taste on both sides with salt and pepper. Carefully place the steaks on the hot skillet and sear for 2 minutes per side.
  4. Transfer the skillet to the oven and let finish cooking for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven and let the steaks rest for 5 minutes. Serve with a pat of blue cheese butter on each steak.

*Pro Tip: Butter mixture will typically keep in the freezer up to one month.
