Steak and Castello® Blue Cheese Bites


Generously season steak with salt and pepper. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over high heat: add olive oil and butter. Carefully drop steak into skillet, add thyme and garlic. Sear steak on both sides for approximately 3 minutes each side. While steak is cooking, tilt the skillet slightly and spoon hot butter/oil over steak. Remove from heat and allow to rest 10 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC).

Cut steak into 1” long x ¼” thick slices. Unroll crescent dough and cut into 12 triangular pieces. Place a slice of steak on the wide side of the crescent triangle, top with a slice of dried fig and Blue Cheese. Roll tightly and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
