Crushed Garlic T-bone Steaks with Roquefort Tomatoes

Crushed Garlic T-bone Steaks with Roquefort Tomatoes


COOKING TIME: 15 minutes

PREP TIME: 50 minutes


  • 4 Blackwell Angus T-bone steaks, at least 1 ½ inches thick
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large tomatoes
  • ½ cup crumbled Roquefort or blue cheese
  • ½ cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced very thin
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Brush steaks with olive oil, and rub all over with crushed garlic. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. Let them stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place steaks on grill, and grill until steaks reach 135°F on an internal meat thermometer for medium-rare doneness, turning once.
  3. Transfer steaks to a platter, and let rest 5 minutes. Keep warm.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Core tomatoes with a small sharp knife. With a large spoon, scoop out about 1 tablespoon of pulp from each tomato, and discard pulp.
  5. In a bowl, stir together cheese and dried breadcrumbs. Put 1 slice of garlic in each tomato cavity, and spoon in the cheese mixture. Drizzle with olive oil. Place tomatoes in a roasting pan, and roast in the oven 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese is melted and the breadcrumbs begin to brown. Serve with steaks.
