Steak CC for Gerry’s Birthday

If you ever want steak and potatoes at my house, this is the dish to ask for: Steak CC.
Just be careful.  It is NOT heart-healthy unless you show restraint.

It’s not easy to show restraint.

Imagine if you will a pepper-crusted steak, pan-seared until it’s just perfectly shy of medium-rare served with a pan sauce. But the pan sauce is made with Canadian Club and a creamy blue cheese like Thornloe’s Devil’s Rock and finished with a splash or two of cream.

This is best served with new potatoes boiled with their skins on and a heavy leafy green like rapini or broccolini, and a nice rich heavy red wine.

That is, pretty much the recipe in loose terms. Some day, if you would like, I’ll share it in specifics.

    thanks Candace.
    Steak CC is an evolution of the standard peppercorn steak but using Canadian Club. Then after deglazing, intensifying the sauce with a creamy blue cheese. We serve it with boiled baby potatoes and either broccoli or green beans tossed in garlic.
    It’s usually what Gerry asks for on his b’day.
