Rare burgers with blue cheese
sauce on homemade buns,
and homemade chili on the
side. Blue cheese makes
anything better..



Last time I was in Vegas, we ate at a steakhouse. I got a lettuce wedge with extra Bleu cheese on the side, and saved it. My ribeye was mediocre until I put a small dab of dressing on a bite, and the flavor just BLEW UP in my mouth. The difference was ridiculous. Better than sautéed mushrooms or any other side I could have done to enhance the steak.

I've had filet and steak tips served with bleu cheese, and it enhances those, but never tried it with a ribeye before. It must be the amount of fat/marbling in the cut that acts with the dressing, because those leaner cuts didn't pop like the ribeye did. I would think it would do the same to hamburger that has a good outside sear.

Even if people don't like bleu cheese on salads, try it once on a steak. The flavor changes completely.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I really did go to culinary school
for a year. They drive home the
point about flavor enhancement,
and the use of one thing to offset
another. I use cheese and spices
a lot, everything is made from
scratch. If you learn how to cook
well, eating out becomes a
punishment more than a reward.

Blue cheeses like Stilton, in isolation can seem disgusting, but put a small slice on your steak or burger and melt it in, or make as a sauce, serve with steak and it's bloody marvellous. Yes, I think better with fatty beef.

There's a local restaurant that puts Stilton in its steak pies. It's to die for!

Anyhow... Tonight, after a long session at the gym, I prepared and scoffed a delicious Chicken wrap. Large herby wrap, lots of chicken in Fajita seasoning fried with bell pepper and onion in olive oil.

Washed down with a totally inappropriate English Craft Ale

Quick, simple, delicious and cost next to nothing.

Years ago, an accident resulted in a goodly portion of the content of a bottle of Marzano Blue Cheese dressing to drop into a pot of freshly made meatballs, sausages and meat sauce. It sat overnight and by the time I discovered it, it was time to heat it up. I wasn't crazy about the new combo sauce but several commented positively on it.

You probably just needed to adjust the quantities.
