Yield:
2 servings

Ingredients
  • 1/4 pound Stilton, softened (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons freeze-dried green peppercorns
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 -inch - thick rib-eye steak (about 1 pound)
  • Watercress sprigs, for garnish
Directions
  • In a bowl cream together the cheese and the butter until the mixture is smooth. In a saucepan boil the wine with peppercorns until reduced to about 1 tablespoon, add the cream, and boil the liquid until reduced by half. Reduce the heat to moderately low, whisk the cheese mixture, a little at a time, into the cream mixture, and whisk in the parsley. Remove the pan from the heat and keep the sauce warm. Heat a well-seasoned ridged grill pan over moderately high heat until it is hot and in it cook the steak, patted dry and seasoned with salt and pepper, for 4 to 5 minutes on each for side for medium-rare meat. Alternatively, the steak may be broiled under a pre-heated broiler about 4 inches from the heat for the same amount of time. Let the steak stand on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Cut into thin slices, serve with the sauce and garnish with watercress.
