It is all about finding what is on sale and then finding something new and yummy from Rachel Ray recipes. I picked this recipe because I found flat iron steaks for $4.63 total. In a previous post by Renae she suggested stocking up when you find meat on sale. I grabbed this manager’s special and put it in my freezer for another day.

Flat-Iron Steaks with Blue Cheese Butter
- 4 flat-iron steaks (8 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder or grill seasoning
- Salt and ground black powder
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
- 1/4 cup chopped chives
- 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Season the steaks with garlic powder, salt and pepper. (If you’re using grill seasoning instead of garlic powder, don’t add salt and pepper because it’s already in the grill seasoning.). Set aside and let marinate for 30 minutes.
While the steaks are marinating, combine the softened butter, blue cheese, chives and parsley in a medium-size mixing bowl. Drop the butter mixture out onto a piece of wax or parchment paper, shape it into a log and roll up the paper to secure it. Refrigerate the butter to firm it up.
To cook the steaks, place a large, cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of oil, about 2 tablespoons. When the pan is smoking hot, sear 2 steaks at a time until golden brown and cooked to your liking, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Repeat with the remaining steaks. Let the steaks rest on a cutting board for about 5 minutes after they come out of the pan before slicing them.
