I can just hear you all…..ewwwww, Blue Cheese! Really, I understand your apprehension. Blue Cheese is one of those love/hate foods. But you must trust me on this one. I tested it on Mr. Wii and he L-O-V-E-D it. He loved it before I told him what was in it. He loved it even after I told him what was in it. He is not a big Blue Cheese fan but has been surprised a time or two with a dish containing Blue Cheese.
I found the recipe over at The Pioneer Woman
. If you have never been to her site, please stop by and take a look. She does a fine job of cooking and telling stories of the goings on of ranch life. Her food is top notch and her photographs are top notchier.
This sauce was so good, we were trying to come up with other things we could put it on. And this was before we actually sat down to eat! Since we had baked potatoes with our steak, it seemed too good to be true to take a piece of potato and stir it around the sauce. Oh my heavenly gosh!!!! This sauce is going to make the person you make it for, love you even more. I’m not kidding, Mr. Wii said he loved me more for making the sauce!!!!!
Grill your steaks any way you like. Out on the grill or on a grilling pan in the kitchen. Ribeye really is the perfect steak for this sauce.
Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman

Saute onions in 4 tablespoons butter over high heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until dark and caramelized. Reduce heat to simmer and pour in the cream. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir in the blue cheese until melted. Serve steaks on a generous portion of sauce. Makes about 2-4 servings.
