Serves: 4-6 

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

  • 2 ounces soft, creamy-style blue cheese, at room temperature

  • 1 tablespoon butter, slightly softened

  • 1/2 pound New York strip steak, trimmed of excess fat

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 3 tablespoons roughly cracked black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

  • 1/2 cup crushed potato sticks (the kind you get at 7-Eleven or the corner store, nothing fancy!)

  1. In a small bowl, mash the blue cheese and butter with a fork until smooth.

  2. Pat the meat dry with paper towels and cut into twelve 1-inch cubes. Season it all over with the salt. Place the cracked pepper in a shallow dish and press the steak cubes into the pepper on all sides to form a pepper crust.

  3. In a medium cast-iron or heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When shimmering-hot, add the steak cubes and cook on all sides until medium-rare, about 30 seconds per side. Remove the steak from the skillet by stabbing each cube with a wooden, metal, or bamboo skewer. Squash about 1 teaspoon of the blue cheese butter on top of the meat (it will begin to melt down the sides if you play your cards right), then press a few potato sticks into the cheese.
