Best Steaks EVER

Have you seen the Walmart commercials where they replace the steaks at a restaurant with Walmart steaks?  When my daughter saw it the first time she said “I’d be mad if they did that to me!  Well she certainly changed her tune when I had the opportunity to test Walmart’s USDA Choice Steaks!  They were the best steaks I’ve had in YEARS, that’s including restaurants!  I was given a $25.00 gift card to cover the cost of the steaks while creating an economical summer BBQ.  I spent the entire twenty-five on two huge steaks; a rib eye and a T bone.  With that I served grilled corn on the cob and sweet potato oven fries.  The steaks were so big that one was plenty for two people so actually we had the most marvelous family BBQ with the most amazing steaks ever for just less than $30.00.
So all I can say is I’ll be back for more USDA Choice Steaks from Walmart real soon!

For the blue cheese butter:
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
3 Wedges Laughing Cow Light Blue Cheese
Freshly ground black pepper

For the Herb butter
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature 
4 Tablespoons fresh chopped herbs
Freshly ground black pepper

For the steaks:
4 USDA Choice Steaks about an inch& a half thick

Blend the butter, blue cheese & pepper together ( or butter, herbs & pepper) in a small bowl. 

Pack the butter into a small ziplock baggie and form into a log. Refrigerate until needed. The butter can be made several days in advance and freezes well.  Actually I always have herb butter in the freezer!

Make sure you allow at least 30 minutes for the steaks to come to room temperature prior to grilling.  Generously sprinkle with salt just prior to grilling; no more than 5 minutes before!
Preheat your grill and when very hot, oil the grill racks.  Place the steaks on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare
Let steaks stand for 5 minutes before serving to let the juices settle. Top with a generous slice of the butter of choice and enjoy!
