  1. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus

  4. 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

  5. 1/2 yellow onion, thinly sliced salt & fresh ground black pepper

  6. 1 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese

  1. Heat one tablespoon of the butter and one tablespoon of the oil over medium and add both types of onion and a little salt and freshly ground black pepper; cook, stirring, until crispy and brown, about 15 minutes, then set aside.

  2. Mash together the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, the cheese and mustard and set aside.

  3. Rub the steaks with salt and pepper; heat the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil in a medium cast-iron skillet over high heat; when very hot, add both the steaks and cook without disturbing for 2 minutes; flip and brown the other side for 2 more minutes- this will give you medium doneness but still pink meat.

  4. Place the steaks onto the roll bottoms, top each with half the butter mixture and then smother with onions; top with the roll tops and eat with ice cold, alcoholic beverages on a Friday evening.
