Elegant Beef Blue

Heidi has had someone make this meal for her and she says it's delicious! A yummy, Valentine's Dinner you can cook up for your Valentine if you plan on staying home!
Elegant Beef Blue

  • (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup dry white wine 
  • 1/2 cup beef consommé
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • small asparagus spears 
  • 1 1/2 ounces crumbled blue cheese 


  1. Rub steaks with chopped thyme, salt, and pepper.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add oil. Add steaks, and cook 1 to 3 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Remove steaks, and keep warm; reserve drippings in skillet.
  3. Stir wine and consomme into drippings; increase heat to high. Cook, stirring often, until reduced to 1/2 cup. Stir in half-and-half, and cook, stirring constantly, until reduced to 1/2 cup or desired consistency. Keep warm.
  4. Snap off tough ends of asparagus; remove scales with a vegetable peeler, if desired. Cut spears in half, and place in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Top steaks with asparagus, and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Broil 6 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially open) 2 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately with sauce.
