Applebee's Copycat Recipe
9 oz. Cajun-seasoned sirloin topped with melted bleu cheese. With garlic mashed potatoes, seasonal vegetables and garlic toast.
4 top sirloin, rib eye or fillet steaks
1 cup crumbled blue cheese
Montreal steak seasoning to taste
Rub the seasoning all over both sides of steaks.
Grill steaks, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). When you flip the meat add 1/4 cup of blue cheese on top of the side that has already cooked.
