  1. Heat the grill to medium heat – about 350*. Coat the grate with olive oil.
  2. Sprinkle the filets with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the filets on the grill, cooking them for 4 minutes on each side, until rare. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Toast buns, if desired, on the cool part of the grill while the filets are grilling. Remove once toasted.

  1. I can’t stop staring at that picture! Never have I craved a burger more (drooling..)

    • Right! I was CRAVING a steak with blue cheese sauce and the idea to make a burger popped into my head. It really is simple to make (and as good as it looks)!

  2. Yummy! This is my kind of burger–a slab of steak and lots of cheese 🙂
