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.
3.
To serve, spoon cheese mixture over steaks (below). Cover with foil and let stand for 5 minutes to soften cheese. Makes 4 servings.
Variation
  • Broiling directions: Preheat broiler. Place steaks on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat until steaks reach desired doneness, turning once. Allow 10 to 12 minutes for medium-rare and 12 to 15 minutes for medium. Top with cheese mixture as above. Makes 4 servings.
