Grilled Steak With Blue Cheese Potatoes


In this meat-and-potatoes dish, everything is grilled at the same time; the steak is first marinated for added flavor, and the potatoes are boiled so they will be fluffy and tender inside their crisp grilled exteriors. Blue cheese is a classic steakhouse offering; place it on the potatoes as soon as they come off the grill, so the cheese will begin to melt.

  • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary, plus sprigs for garnish
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 3/4 pounds skirt steak
  • 1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes
  • Coarse salt
  • 3 ounces blue cheese, crumbled


  1. Preheat grill to high. Stir garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, and oil in a nonreactive dish; season with pepper. Place steak in dish, cutting to fit if necessary; coat both sides with marinade. Marinate, turning once, 15 minutes, or up to overnight in the refrigerator.

  2. Cover potatoes with cold water in a medium saucepan; add a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until just tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; let cool slightly. Slice potatoes in half, and brush lightly with oil; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Grill steak, turning once, to desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Set aside. Meanwhile, grill potatoes, turning once, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Immediately sprinkle with cheese. Thinly slice steak against grain. Divide steak and potatoes among 4 plates. Serve, garnished with rosemary sprigs.

    Excellent! And very easy to make. Great for having friends over as you can do most of the work ahead of time and just put it on the grill for 5 mnutes when you are ready to eat!
