Cheese-Topped Steaks

Ingredients
1/2
cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese or other blue cheese (2 ounces)
4
slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
1/4
cup pine nuts or slivered almonds, toasted
4
teaspoons snipped fresh thyme
2
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
4
boneless beef top loin steaks, cut 3/4-inch thick (about 2 pounds total)
1/4
teaspoon salt
 
Nonstick cooking spray

Directions

  1. In a small bowl stir together cheese, bacon, nuts, thyme, garlic, and pepper; set aside.
  2. Trim fat from steaks. Sprinkle steaks with salt. Lightly coat a grill pan or 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Heat pan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium. Add steaks, half at a time if necessary; cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until steaks reach desired doneness.
