Blue Cheese and Beef
      #1009855 - 05/21/09 09:24 PM (75.82.152.50)

In creating ways for my mother to live with less sodium I have found that blue cheese, while not low in sodium, can help. In a filet mignon I insert a sharp thin blade and making an entry wiggle the knife inside to create a pocket. I then lightly fill with blue cheese. Doing this I reduce the amount of sodium she would have used seasoning the steak by 75%.

Also I will crumble blue cheese and mix it with ground beef spreading the flavor. This uses less blue cheese than the traditional blue burger and again reduces the sodium significantly.

She now prefers these a good bit over the old way.

Jim, for a burger, I use Gorganzola, and make two thin patties, put a litte cheese in the center of one, and top with the second...
Then seal well around the edges... very good with the melted center...

Nothing like blue cheese with beef! We just had flank steak with blue cheese last night. Tonight we're having friends for happy hour and we'll take the second flank steak that we already cooked, put slices on french bread, top with blue cheese and put under the broiler. YUM!

Flank Steaks & Skirt Steaks are our absolute favorites...
Can't beat the flavors!
Better than the best Filet Mignon in my book!
and they make the best sandwiches the next day!
