Steak, Mushroom, and Blue Cheese Salad
From Cook's Country
Our Steak, Mushroom, and Blue Cheese Salad recipe is a twist on a classic flavor combination. The pan should be very hot before adding the steaks. Cooking steaks in a pan that isn’t properly preheated leads to meat that overcooks before developing a good crust. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat with a bit of vegetable oil until the oil smokes, which indicates that the pan is hot enough. We preferred to buy a whole chunk of blue cheese and crumble it ourselves, as the pre-crumbled blue cheese tends to be dry and bland. We used a fork to break the cheese into small bits.
Cooking the mushrooms in a few tablespoons of vinaigrette (rather than the usual oil) gives them a tangy flavor.
