Smothered Steak for Two

Carla says: My husband likes to do the grilling part while I prepare the rest.  It makes for a fun way to share the making of a meal!  Add a green salad with more blue cheese, and some fresh baked bread with butter for a simple but delicious man-pleasing meal!   2 fillet mignon steaks (size is up to you, salt and pepper to taste)4 cups of sliced mushrooms (not too thin)5 T. butter (more if you like)1 clove garlicSalt and pepper to tasteYour husband’s favorite brand of blue cheese, at room temperature, sliced into several chunks Just after putting steaks on to grill, melt butter and pressed garlic in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Add mushrooms to saucepan. Add salt and pepper, and let simmer over low heat, until mushrooms are tender. When steaks are done to your liking, place a chunk of blue cheese on top of each sizzling steak. Then pour sautéed mushrooms over the blue cheese, allowing them to overflow over the sides.
