Rib-eye steak with blue cheese mash, caramelised balsamic onions and red wine sauce

This dinner was so amazing! Sweet caramelised balsamic onions and the sharp creamy mashed potato are perfect side dishes to the rib-eye steak and red wine sauce. I loved this dish so much, I honestly can’t believe how well everything works together. I seriously recommend making this dish, including using rib-eye. Compared to porterhouse or rump it seems a bit pricy but it is just the most tender and juicy cut. I also recommend using stilton or gorgonzola cheese, as better quality cheese will keep the flavour when it’s heated. I will definitely be making this dish next time I have people over, I’m sure it will blow their minds.



Balsamic onions
– 2 red onions
– 1 1/2 tbs balsamic vinegar
– 2 tbs brown sugar

Slice onions and add to pan on medium heat. Cook until soft then add vinegar and sugar. Leave on medium for 15 minutes, stirring often. Turn to low and leave onions to make blue cheese mash.

Blue cheese mash
– 400g cream delight potatoes
– 1/4-1/2 cup milk
– 1 tbs butter
– salt and pepper
– 1 tbs stilton, blue cheese

Boil potatoes until tender. Drain and mash potatoes with fork/masher. Stir in butter, cheese and salt and pepper. Add milk slowly whilst stirring, checking consistency. Stand aside.


Rib-eye fillet and red wine sauce
– 2x 200g rib-eye steaks
– 1 tbs oil
– 1/2 cup red wine
– 3/4 chicken stock
– 2 tbs butter

Add butter to pan on medium heat. When hot add steaks and leave for 3 minutes. Turn steak over and when cooked to your liking take out of pan. In the same pan add the red wine and put on high heat. Boil the wine until the wine has reduced by half. Add chicken stock and reduce by half. Whisk in butter until sauce is glossy.

Putting it together
Spoon potato onto plates and place steak on top. Take onions off the heat and divide between plates then pour red wine sauce on onions. Serve and enjoy!

  2. Hmm, well when I want to use a recipe from the Internet, I just take my laptop into the kitchen and sit it on the counter while I cook. Otherwise you can go to the internet options and press print, and it will print out the page. Hope that helps :)
