Blackened Rib Eye Steak with Bleu Cheese, Caramelized Onions and Asparagus

I love Blackened Rib Eye steaks and I love Bleu Cheese. Put the two together and you have a Black and Bleu Rib Eye! Ouch! Its so good! Then add some Caramelized Onions and, dare I say it, heaven! Yes, my wife and I were smacking our lips and groaning how good it was after every bite! Let’s get started…

Ingredients

  • 1 Rib Eye steak to share, 10 or 12 ounces would be good
  • Blackening spice, like Paul Prudhommes
  • 1 large Yellow Onion, peeled and cut into slices
  • 2 tbl butter
  • 2 tbls Avocado Oil
  • Low carb veggie (I used asparagus)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • couple slices of Bleu cheese

Method

Onions

  1. Add butter to large fry pan on high heat
  2. When butter has melted, add onions, toss to coat and turn down heat to medium
  3. As we cook the steak make sure to keep an eye on the onions. We want to brown them, not burn them.
  4. When the onions have browned add a pinch or two of salt, stir, then add the white wine. Turn the heat down to low and evaporate all the white wine

Blackened Rib Eye Steak

  1. Heat a cast iron pan big enough to hold the steak on high heat
  2. Coat the steak on both sides with one tablespoon of avocado oil
  3. Sprinkle one side of steak with blackening spices, then turn the steak over and coat the other side. Pat down so spices adhere to steak.
  4. When the cast iron pan is hot, add one tablespoon of avocado oil to the pan, then add the steak to the pan right on top of the oil
  5. If you have a splatter screen, put it on top of the cast iron pan and that will keep grease from landing all over the place.
  6. Set a 10 minute timer. That should get you to medium rare. Of course, cook more or less depending on your tastes.
  7. Are you watching those onion? 🙂
  8. Half way through the cook time on the steak, turn it over
  9. When your done cooking the steak let it rest for a couple minutes before cutting it in half to split with your significant other 🙂

Veggie

  1. Cook your veggie. I used Asparagus for this one. Bring water to a boil, add olive oil and salt to water, add asparagus, bring bake to a boil, turn the heat down to a simmer, 4 minutes, done, drain
  2. Half way through the cook time on the steak, turn it over

Done!

  1. Blackened Rib Eye Steak with bleu cheese on top, caramelized onions and vegetable with lots of butter!
  2. Plate it up and eat!
