How to Cook Blue Cheese Chive Butter-Rested Filet Mignon with Fully Loaded Hasselback Potatoes

Dad only deserves the best and he’s getting it thanks to this recipe’s shining star: the Omaha Steaks Private Reserve® Filet Mignon. The best of the best, this Private Reserve® cut is aged for at least 35 days and extra-trimmed by our master butchers for fork-tender perfection. Learn more about filet mignon and why it is so special. The steak achieves a new level of juiciness when topped with the combination of sharp and creamy blue cheese, onion-like chives, and mellow unsalted butter. This dish is wonderfully complemented with a fully loaded potato that’s crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and all around delicious! Let’s get cooking!

1. Butter Up!

Why use just any pat of butter to top your steak when you can make one that’s loaded with flavor and unique textures? A savory combination of tangy, piquant blue cheese, mild, oniony chives, and creamy butter make up this gourmet steak-topper. Once you’ve created yours, make sure you allow it to chill in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours until it is firm and ready to use.

2. Perfect a Swedish Potato Technique

The name may sound complicated, but Hasselback potatoes are surprisingly easy to make! Created in the 1940s in the Swedish restaurant after which it is named, the Hasselback technique simply requires you to cut a potato into thin slices without completely cutting through, so all the slices remain attached to the potato. While you prepare the grill for 450 degrees indirect heat, place chopsticks on the lengthwise sides of your russet potatoes. Then, using the chopsticks as a guide, slice 1/4” thick slices, stopping about 1/2” from the bottom.

Next, line a medium cast iron pan with aluminum foil, spray with a thin layer of nonstick cooking spray, and add your sliced potatoes. Whisk melted butter and olive oil together in a small bowl, then pour the mixture over the potatoes and evenly season with salt and pepper. Cook the potatoes on your grill for 50 to 60 minutes until they’re tender and golden brown, then remove the pan and place small cheese slices between each potato slice you cut. Finally, return the pan to the grill, cooking until your cheese has melted, and top the potatoes with sour cream, bacon, and chives.

3. Prepare This Meal’s MVP

While your potatoes are cooking, it’s time to prepare the most important part of the meal: Omaha Steaks Private Reserve® Filet Mignon. Follow our steak thawing guide for helpful tips on properly thawing the filet mignons and then bring to room temperature, which should take about 20 minutes. Once ready, pat dry and season on both sides with salt and pepper. Next, we’re going to prepare the grill for 500 degrees direct heat and sous vide the steaks to achieve the perfect sear.

Place the seasoned filets, garlic cloves, and thyme sprig in a sous vide bag and vacuum seal it. Then cook them in the water bath for 1 hour until they reach a temperature of 10 degrees below desired cooking doneness temperature. Not sure what that looks like? Omaha Steaks doneness guide has you covered!

Next, remove the sous vide filets and sear directly on the grill for about 90 seconds to 2 minutes on each side, until charred and browned, and allow it to rest for 7 to 8 minutes. And for the big finishing act, slice the chilled blue cheese chive butter we prepared earlier into 1/2” pieces and place on top, where it will melt and coat the filet for the juiciest, most spectacular bite Dad will ever take.
