Grilled Steaks with Creamy Parmesan Sauce can this be bad?  Look at it.. the creamy sauce....  it looks a bit like heaven, don't you think?

No?  Well, it's pretty darn close anyway!

Nice thing about this sauce, you can change it up by adding different cheeses... turn this into a creamy gorgonzola or goat cheese sauce.  Add some chopped up mushrooms or small shrimp.  Sop it up with warm bread........

I think you get the idea:  This is a simple and delicious recipe that can be a canvas (ha, haven't used that term in a while, have I?) for something even more amazing!

I just made the whole post about the sauce again, didn't I?  Oh, well....... :)

Grilled Steaks with Creamy Parmesan Sauce
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
Printable Recipe 
4 steaks - whatever cut you want - I used sirloins
olive oil
garlic salt
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, finely minced
2 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream or half and half
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1-2 Tablespoons fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Rub both sides of the steaks with olive oil and season with garlic salt and pepper.  Preheat grill to 400 degrees.  Let steaks stand at room temperature while you wait.  Place the steaks on the grill and grill for 5-10 minutes per side depending on the doneness you prefer.  Remove from grill and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing into.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, melt the butter over medium low heat.  Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute.  Stir in the cream cheese and cream or half & half.  Allow the cream cheese to melt, stirring constantly.  Add the parmesan cheese and simmer until all the cheese has melted.  Remove from heat, add the parsley and season with salt and pepper.  Server over steaks and enjoy!

If you keep making such beautiful hunks of beef I'm going to have to buy a grill. Or maybe I can just steal one - I mean everybody leaves them sitting out! And - a year ago I was the GUEST BLOGGER!

Sauce queen - I love it. AND your new profile pic! Where have I been? What month is it?? Who am I?

Anyway, of course we would have steak and sauce on the brain at the same time... I'm making Pioneer Woman's rib eyes with whiskey cream sauce tomorrow night! Have a great weekend lovely!

That sauce looks fantastic. I bet it really would be delicious with some fresh bread.

I really don't mind that you "made the whole post about the sauce again"! I have an aversion to a plain hunk of meat; I HAVE to sauce it. Guess I'M all about the sauce, too!

Steak. And Sauce. My two favorite things (besides bacon!). Yes please!

Heavy cream and cheese? You have my heart!

I like your idea about gorgonzola because to me that is the absolute best cheese with grilled steak.
