Inexpensive steaks get an upgrade from a Dijon balsamic vinaigrette and a dollop of blue cheese butter. The vinaigrette also makes an earthy, tangy dressing for a crunchy celery salad.

Ingredients

Directions

Soak the onions in a bowl of cold water for 10 minutes (this helps remove some of the pungent bite).

Pierce the steaks with a fork and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Coat them in 3 tablespoons of the French Style Dijon Balsamic Vinaigrette in a shallow bowl or baking dish. Set aside while you prepare the blue cheese butter and salad.

Mash the blue cheese, butter and 1 tablespoon of the parsley in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. 

Drain the onion and pat dry. Toss with the celery and the remaining 2 tablespoons parsley in another bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Cook the steaks until browned on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip and continue to cook 3 to 5 more minutes for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate and let rest 5 minutes. 

Divide the celery salad among 4 plates. Top each with a steak and drizzle with any pan juices or collected juices on the plate. Top each steak with a mound of blue cheese butter. Drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette.
