CEiMB: Marinated Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce
This week's CEiMB recipe, marinated flank steak with blue cheese sauce, was chosen by Deliciously Golden. It was the perfect opportunity to make a classic steak dinner with a couple healthy swap-outs.
We are not strangers to flank steak here. My husband does a great job cooking this cut of meat on the grill. The marinade was good, a bit sweet from the brown sugar and spicy from the garlic. I loved the blue cheese sauce. The flavor of this cheese is so strong it was able to permeate the buttermilk mixture so well. The lowfat buttermilk added a ton of creamy texture too! Definately a sauce recipe I will use again. I think this is a must try dish, especially for a weeknight since it was so quick. I served this alongside some cumin sweet potato wedges and roasted aspargus (I might have dizzled the blue cheese sauce over my potatoes too). It was a great meal. Enjoy!
