Filet Mignon with Blue Cheese Chive Butter

Recipe courtesy of Omaha Steaks Executive Chef David Rose
Servings: 2

Blue Cheese Chive Butter:

  • 4         ounces unsalted butter, cubed
  • 4         ounces blue cheese
  • 1         tablespoon fresh chives, minced
  • 1/4       teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4       teaspoon black pepper

Filet Mignon:

  • 2         Omaha Steaks Private Reserve Filet Mignons
  • Omaha Steaks Private Reserve Rub
  1. To make blue cheese chive butter: In medium bowl, use rubber spatula to fold and incorporate butter, blue cheese, chives, salt and pepper. 
  2. Section 18 inches of plastic wrap and place blue cheese chive butter about 6 inches above bottom. Take bottom portion of plastic wrap and place over blue cheese chive butter then shape butter into 1 1/2-inch cylinder.
  3. Continue to roll butter in plastic; pinch ends of plastic wrap while rolling to tighten cylinder.
  4. Once size and tightness are achieved, tie off loose ends of plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator 1-2 hours, until blue cheese chive butter is chilled and firm. 
  5. To make filet mignon: Bring filet mignons to room temperature, about 20 minutes; pat dry and season on both sides with rub, to taste.
  6. Prepare grill for 500 F direct heat.
  7. For medium-rare, place steaks on grill 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook 2-3 minutes, or until 130-140 F internal temperature is reached.
  8. Rest 7-8 minutes before serving.
  9. Slice chilled blue cheese chive butter into 1/2-inch pieces and place on top of filets.
