Garlic Rubbed Steak with Blue Cheese & French Fried Onions


  • 2 whole 1-inch thick New York Strip Steaks
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 pinches salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 4 tbsp. crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup french fried onions

Remove steaks from the fridge and let them sit for 30 minutes or so to take the chill off.

Preheat outdoor grill to high.

Cut the garlic clove in half and rub both sides of the steak with the cut side of garlic. The longer you rub them, the stronger the flavor. Drizzle canola oil over the steaks and spread evenly. Sprinkle both sides of the meat generously with salt and pepper.

Place steak on the hot grill and reduce heat to medium. Cover and grill 3-4 minutes and flip. (If you like a more well-done steak, leave on the grill to cook 4-5 minutes before flipping.)

Cook steak another 2 minutes covered. Top each with 1 teaspoon butter. As butter starts to melt, spread it evenly over the top of the meat. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of blue cheese on top of each steak. Replace the lid and cook another 1-2 minutes or until steak is cooked to your liking and cheese has started to melt.

Transfer steaks to a serving platter and cover with foil to let the meat rest.

After 5-10 minutes, remove the foil and top with French fried onions. Serve warm.
