I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

The Sunday Blues

We’ve all gone through those phases where we seem to latch on to a particular food or recipe and just can’t seem to get enough. Our family has been experiencing that very thing over the last several months when it comes to our Sunday meal. Almost every Sunday for several months now we have craved, made and delighted in dining on grilled steak with sautéed mushrooms and crumbled blue cheese. A side of steamed broccoli, a salad and sometimes the addition of a baked potato and we feel like we are at a 5 star restaurant dining in high fashion. This is one meal that will never fade from this families menu.

Steak with Crumbled Blue Cheese and Sautéed Mushrooms

4- 9 to 12 ounce NY Strips (or whatever cut you prefer)
1 pound of mushrooms, your choice
Butter for sautéing
Crumbled Blue Cheese
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Grill, Broil or fry your steaks to desired doneness
Slice mushrooms and sauté in butter, season steaks and mushrooms to your own personal taste. Place steak on plate, sprinkle with crumbled blue cheese then top with the hot sautéed mushrooms and enjoy.

Works well with a variety of vegetables, salad, and any type of potato or rice dish.

My family adores this too! But I also drizzle a Balsamic glaze over it as well. M-m-m-M!
