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.
9. Cook for around 4 minutes each side for a medium rare steak. Exact cooking times will depend on the thickness of your steak.
10. Rest for at least 6 minutes before slicing and serving with the blue cheese sauce.
