a favorite topping for a steak, this works on back strap also.

Blue-Cheese-Topped Steak

4 sirlon or chuck eye steaks or your favorite one (about 12 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
6 ounces blue cheese
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon chopped parsley leaves

Prepare outdoor grill with medium-hot coals, or heat
gas grill to medium-hot (to broil, see below). Season
steaks with salt and pepper. Grill steaks, covered,
about 6 minutes per side or until instant-read thermometer
inserted in center registers 145 degrees F for medium-rare.

 Meanwhile, blend together blue cheese and butter in small
bowl until creamy.
Equally divide blue cheese mixture over
 steaks. Keep steaks on grill another 30 seconds or until
butter melts. Garnish with parsley. To broil: Heat broiler.
Grease broiler-pan rack. Broil steaks about 6 minutes on
each side for medium-rare. Spread blue cheese mixture over
 each steak. Broil 30 seconds.

beef stew

 

I cheat on my beef stew by buying a seasoning packet and frozen beef stew veggies

2 lbs beef stew meat

1/4 - 1/2 cup flour for dredging

1 pkg beef stew seasoning mix

2 bags frozen veggies for stew (baby potatoes, pearl onions, celery and carrot pieces) { or 4 cups cubed potato, 2 medium onions, cut into 1 inch chunks, 2 ribs celery{sliced}, 2 large carrots{peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks})

3 cups water

2 tsp oil

Heat oil in stock pot over medium heat. cut beef into bite size pieces. 

Put flour in a large freezer bag. add meat and shake to coat. In batches, cook meat in oil until light golden brown and remove to another dish. Repeat until all meat is browned. Drain any oil and return all meat to pot. stir in the 3 cups water and the seasoning mix. stir to combine. Bring to a boil, cover and lower heat to simmer. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Add veggies and stir. cook for another 45 minutes, stirring often. 

Serve with dinner rolls and a side salad.

Hungarian Beef

2 - 3 lb. beef roast

1 large onion, sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 c. ketchup

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. paprika

1/2 tsp. dry mustard

1 c. water

1/4 c. flour

Place meat in crock pot; cover with sliced onion.  Combine rest of ingredients but water and flour; stir in water.  Pour over meat.  Cover and cook on low for 9 to 10 hours.  If you would like to thicken the tasty sauce, then turn to high about 30 minutes before serving.  Dissolve flour in a small amount of cold water; stir into sauce mixture in crock pot.  Cook until slightly thickened.  Serve over noodles, potatoes, or rice.

Note:  You can also add potatoes about 4 - 5 hours before cooking time is done.
