Garlic Rubbed Steak with Blue Cheese & French Fried Onions

Garlic Rubbed Steak with Blue Cheese & French Fried Onions
yield: 2 large servings

Ingredients:
2 – 1 inch thick New York Strip Steaks
1 clove garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon canola oil
salt
pepper
2 teaspoons butter
4 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese {about 2 oz.}
1/2 cup french fried onions

Directions:
1. Remove steaks from fridge and sit them out 30 minutes or so to take the chill off.
2. Preheat outdoor grill to high.
3. Cut garlic clove in half and rub both sides of steak with cut side of garlic. The longer you rub them, the stronger the flavor. Drizzle canola oil over steaks and spread evenly. Sprinkle both sides of meat generously with salt and pepper.
4. Place steak on hot grill and reduce heat to medium. Cover and grill 3-4 minutes and flip. {If you like a more well done steak, leave on the grill to cook 4-5 minutes before flipping.}
5. Cook steak another 2 minutes covered. Top each with 1 teaspoon butter. As butter starts to melt, spread it evenly over the top of the meat. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of blue cheese on top of each steak. Replace lid and cook another 1-2 minutes or until steak is cooked to your liking and cheese has started to melt.
6. Transfer steaks to serving platter and cover with foil to let meat rest.
7. After 5-10 minutes remove foil and top with french fried onions. Serve warm.
