1lbsteak (sirloin, strip, filet, etc)
1/2tablespoonavocado oil - can use olive oil, but avocado oil works better for a high smoke point cooking
1/2tablespoonbutter or ghee
1tablespooncrushed thyme - or fresh
1loafFrench baguette - sliced
1/2cupStella® Blue Cheese crumbles, divided
balsamic glaze, for garnish - optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
While oven preheats prepare steak. To a medium skillet, melt oil and butter (oil is to cook, butter is for flavor) over medium-high heat. Season steak with salt, pepper, garlic and thyme. Once skillet is hot, add steak and sear 4-5 minutes per side for medium doneness (140-145F for medium doneness). Remove from skillet and transfer steak to a cutting board. Let rest for 10 minutes, before slicing against the grain.
While steak rests, make crostinis. Slice baguette into 1/2 inch slices on the diagonal, making about 20 toasts. Place sliced baguette on a baking sheet, and brush with olive oil (about 1/4 cup for 20 slices).
Top with blue cheese crumbles. Bake for 4-6 minutes, until baguette is browned, and cheese is melted.
Remove from oven, and top with a generous slice of steak. Garnish with additional blue cheese and balsamic glaze, if desired. Serve immediately.
