Happy birthday to me! I love having a mid-year birthday – it’s like a mid-year reset button. New Year’s resolutions not going well? You can start over as you turn another year older. Which is exactly what I’m going to do.
I’ve been on an on-going quest to eat better and cook more from scratch. It’s a process and a challenge – and the last few months I haven’t been doing so well. We’ve been eating out or getting take out more than I would like.
I’m not ready to give up my favorite junk foods, cheesesteak included, but I’m going to make more of an effort to cook them at home so I can better keep track of exactly what I’m eating. This recipe was sort of the test – could I really make something at home that could squash my takeout craving?
Steak Sandwiches with Blue Cheese Sauce
(from Cook This, Not That!)
2 T. plain Greek yogurt
2 T. mayonnaise
1/4 c. crumbled blue cheese
8 oz. skirt steak or flank steak
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 sandwich rolls
In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise and blue cheese until well combined.
Season the steak with salt and pepper. Cook on a hot grill for about 8-10 minutes, turning half way. Allow to rest five minutes and then slice into thin strips.
Cut each roll in half lengthwise and spread the blue cheese sauce inside. Divide steak and caramelized onion between rolls.
