Serves 2-4 depending on size of steak and sides

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 10 minutes


1 T-bone steak
250ml milk
2 tablespoons plain flour
25g butter
200g Stilton
1 handful chives, finely chopped



Recreate the vibe of a classic steak house at home with this super simple blue cheese sauce. It can be served alongside any steak but a T Bone is always a showstopper and has the benefit of offering two cuts: the sirloin and the fillet. You’ll need to ask a butcher to cut this steak for you.

1. Place the butter, flour and milk into a saucepan.

2. Turn the heat on to medium and whisk quickly, until the mixture combines and thickens - it’s important to keep whisking to avoid any lumps.​​​​​​​

3. Once the sauce is thickened, keep cooking and whisking for a couple of minutes to cook out any raw flour taste.​​​​​​​

4. Crumble in most of the cheese, reserving some for garnish. Add the chives.​​​​​​​

5. Cover the sauce well and set aside.​​​​​​​

6. Light two gas burners on the Jupiter Outback BBQ and set the heat to high. Close the lid and let the BBQ get very hot.​​​​​​​

7. Trim any very thick pieces of fat from the steak and season very well with salt. ​​​​​​​

8. Once the grill is hot, place the steak on it and cook, flipping frequently to form a crust. Move the steak off the heat as necessary if it starts to flare up.​​​​​​​
