Our beef steak with stilton sauce recipe makes for an indulgent midweek meal.
Steak and stilton sauce is a marriage made in food heaven. Who doesn’t like a succulent steak drizzled with a creamy, blue cheese sauce? Easy and quick to make, simply cook your steak to your liking (we prefer ours medium rare) and whip the sauce up in under a minute, heating together milk, stilton, cream-cheese and mustard. For those who prefer a slightly healthier option, use light cream cheese and skimmed milk instead. It’ll save on calories but still deliver the same great taste.
