Art and I never go out for Valentine’s Day. I hate the crowds, I hate the fixed menus and I hate that it’s February and I’m forced to bundle up and wear snow boots to dinner. Usually, Art and I just switch off who cooks for v-day and dine on fancy food in the comfort of our home.

In our pajamas.

Yeah, I hate wearing real clothes at home. I’m a PJ girl through and through.

There are a lot of things I love about this dish but my top favorite things are that it’s ready in 30 minutes and all made in the same pan! How freaking easy?!

Oh, and if you’re one of those “ugh, fruit with my meat?” kind of people you need to give this a try. I think it will change your mind after the first bite. Who wouldn’t love sweet grapes over beefy flank steak sprinkled with blue cheese?

Sweet baby J it’s amazing!

Grape and Blue Cheese Flank Steak

This grape and blue cheese flank steak is the perfect romantic meal and it's ready in JUST 30 minutes! Herb marinated flank steak cooked on the stovetop and topped with balsamic sautéed grapes and shallots and sprinkled with blue cheese - what's not to love? 

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 (2 pound) flank steak
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups halved red seedless grapes
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

 

Directions:

In a large bowl add flank steak, 2 tablespoons olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, kosher salt and black pepper. Mix it all together to help coat the steak.

In a large skillet add 1 tablespoon olive oil and set over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add in the flank steak and cook 5-7 minutes per side. The meat will be resting after cooking so it will continue to cook off the heat.

When the meat is browned on the outside and rare in the middle take it out of the pan, place on a platter and top with foil to keep warm.

In the same skillet add the grapes and shallots and cook for about 10 minutes just until the grapes are warmed and softened.

Add the balsamic vinegar and cook for a few minutes longer just to help the balsamic combine with the grapes and shallots.

Thinly slice the flank steak, top with the grape mixture and sprinkle with blue cheese.

This is the second year for our Valentine’s event! We want to make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer!

Did you know that cancer is the #1 cause of death of children by disease in the U.S.? There are 40,000 U.S. children actively battling cancer right now. With less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget going to all childhood cancer combined, I knew it was important for me to get involved.

Help us make a difference by donating to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer! Our goal is to raise at least $3000. Because these three companies: Dixie Crystals, Mediavine and OXO have each pledged to match our donations raised through this campaign up to $3000!!!

Thanks to many of you, we have reached our goal. You can still donate and help us make an even bigger difference!

    I would have never thought to combine grapes and blue cheese. I can see how beautifully the balsamic sautéed grapes and shallots would work perfectly with the blue cheese! This recipe has wonderful flavors, and looks delish!
