Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Cabernet is steak’s best friend – hefty enough to hold up to the pungent blue cheese.

Beer Pairings

The malty and fruity flavor of a Belgian Tripel will coax out the nuances of both the steak and blue cheese.

3. Grill Steaks: Heat a lightly oiled grill to high. Place steaks on the hot grill and cook 3 minutes per side or until desired doneness.

5. Make the dressing: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, garlic, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Pro Tip:

Temperatures for steak doneness: rare/ 125-130°F, medium rare/130-140°F, medium/140-150°F, medium well/ 150-155°F, well done/why bother?
