Blue Cheese-Stuffed Fillets

This recipe is from Seaon 1 of 5 Ingredient Fix

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 2 teaspoons coarse grey sea salt

  • 6 ounces roquefort or stilton cheese, cut into chunks

  • 4 to 6 ounces beef fillets, good quality and at least 2-inches high

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  • 1.

    In a food processor, pulse butter until whipped, and add salt and cheese. Pulse again just until incorporated. Dollop the compound butter towards 1 side of a piece of natural parchment paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log, twisting opposite ways on both ends to create a tightly wrapped log of butter.

  • 2.

    Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to set. (Can be stored up to 1 week in the refrigerator and up to 1 month in the freezer.) This could be made into 2 logs, as you will only need half this recipe for the steaks.

  • 3.

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • 4.

    Once butter log is set, slice 1/2 the whole log into 1/4-inch disks. Cut a slit in the side of each fillet, and stuff with a butter disk. Tie each fillet with kitchen twine to keep it shape and sprinkle pepper each side.

  • 5.

    Add the olive oil to a large oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, sear each fillet until brown on both sides, about 3 to 5 minutes per side.

  • 6.

    Move skillet into the preheated oven to cook to desired doneness. Put another disk of the compound butter on top of each fillet just about 3 minutes before removing from oven, to just begin to melt but not melted completely.

  • 7.

    Remove from the oven and place on serving plates. Eat and enjoy!
