Blue Cheese Sauce

This is a basic, quick and easy sauce which can be made in minutes to serve warm with a good slice of steak. It's rich and creamy, but not too strong.

Top tip: Don't add any extra salt, the blue cheese will do this for you!

Makes enough for 6

INGREDIENTS:

Blue Cheese - 50g
Butter (salted) - 50g
Plain Flour - 50g
Milk - roughly 100-150ml
Ground Black Pepper - 1 tsp
Garlic - 1 clove
Boiled Water - roughly 150ml

1. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Sieve in the flour. Stir and cook on a medium flame for roughly two minutes.

2. Add a small amount of the milk at a time, stirring constantly until thick and creamy. Add boiled water to dilute to desired consistency.

3. Crush in the garlic, and add the pepper. Mix well.

4. Crumble in the blue cheese and heat through on a low heat until melted. Keep tasting, and add more cheese until it tastes cheesy enough for you!

Serve warm. Try it with my Marinated Fillet Steak & Creamed Sweet Potato.
