Ingredients

1 lb steak (sirloin, strip, filet, etc)

1/2 tablespoon avocado oil - can use olive oil, but avocado oil works better for a high smoke point cooking

1/2 tablespoon butter or ghee

1 tablespoon Kosher salt

1 tablespoon pepper

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon crushed thyme - or fresh

1 loaf French baguette - sliced

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 cup Stella® Blue Cheese crumbles, divided

Balsamic glaze, for garnish - optional

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


2.While oven preheats prepare steak. To a medium skillet, melt oil and butter (oil is to cook, butter is for flavor) over medium-high heat. Season steak with salt, pepper, garlic and thyme. Once skillet is hot, add steak and sear 4-5 minutes per side for medium doneness (140-145F for medium doneness). Remove from skillet and transfer steak to a cutting board. Let rest for 10 minutes, before slicing against the grain.


3.While steak rests, make crostinis. Slice baguette into 1/2 inch slices on the diagonal, making about 20 toasts. Place sliced baguette on a baking sheet, and brush with olive oil (about 1/4 cup for 20 slices).


4.Top with blue cheese crumbles. Bake for 4-6 minutes, until baguette is browned, and cheese is melted.


5.Remove from oven, and top with a generous slice of steak. Garnish with additional blue cheese and balsamic glaze, if desired. Serve immediately.
