How to make it
- Combine Stout, Worcestershire sauce, and minced garlic. Marinade steaks for a few hours
- Cook bacon in large iron skillet until done, but still soft. Set aside
- Cook peeled and devained shrimp in bacon grease just until they turn pink on each side. Do not overcook. Set aside
- Remove steaks from marinade, wrap with cooked bacon using tooth picks to secure. Top with some salt, pepper, and a little bit of the garlic from the marinade
- In a small skillet saute the sliced onion then add marinade. Reduce marinade until it is about one fourth or less of its original volume. Set aside
- Get the Iron skillet with the bacon grease in it very hot, and cook the steaks a few minutes on each side, until they are cooked to your liking.
- Combine blue cheese and bread crumbs, and rub together to combine
- Top Steaks with blue cheese mixture and place in a hot broiler until a brown crust forms
- Serve reduced sauce on the side of the steak with other side dishes.
- I prefer to serve with steamed broccoli and roasted potatoes and thyme to give myself a sense that I am doing something healthy tonight.
