Onion Blue Cheese Sauce

I know, this isn't the best picture, but it's better than no picture, right? My camera was taking dark pictures this evening for some reason (ugh...of course it's the camera's fault and not user-error!).

This is a rich sauce, perfect for the ribeye and t-bone steaks Curtis made on the big green Egg last week. He makes perfect steaks (versus my sad steak-making attempts). We all loved the meal. We decided we couldn't go to many restaurants and get food any better than what we made. Our menu: Steaks with Onion Blue Cheese Sauce, Smoky Beans and Greens, Roasted Sweet Potatoes, and Orange Angel Food Cake (with all the fixings).

The sauce is also good in sandwiches with pastrami (and I am sure roast beef as well).

Onion Blue Cheese Sauce
From the Pioneer Woman Cooks

4 T butter
1 lg yellow onion, sliced
1 c heavy cream
1/2 c crumbled blue cheese

Saute onions in butter over high heat in a small saucepan. Cook for 5 - 10 minutes or until dark and caramelized. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir in cream. Cook until reduced in half, about 3 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in blue cheese until melted.

Serve either on top of steaks of put on a plate and put steaks on top of sauce.
