Steak Crostini is a Filling Holiday Appetizer
Looking for another addition to your appetizer table? This Steak Crostini includes thinly sliced steak, blue cheese, crispy onions, scallions and peppers.
Notes from the LHTC Team:
Steak and blue cheese is a classic combination we've dressed up for the holidays - served on a thin slice of baguette with crispy onions, scallions and thinly sliced sweet peppers. Not only does this appetizer come together surprisingly quick, the stick-to-your-ribs combo of steak and cheese means that no guest leaves your party hungry.
Servings: 4-6 | Prep Time: 30 Minutes
1 lb. Flank Steak
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 baguette, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups Blue Cheese, crumbled
1 cup French’s Fried Onions, crumbled
Scallions, thinly sliced
Small Sweet Peppers, thinly sliced
1. Cook the steak: generously season steak with freshly ground black pepper and salt.
2. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan and preheat over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add the steak and cook 8-10 minutes, flipping half way through, until desired doneness is reached. Remove from pan, let rest 5-10 minutes, then slice thin against the grain.
3. Assemble the crostini: Preheat oven to 450F. Lay baguette slices out on a sheet pan in a single layer. Divide half of the blue cheese amongst baguette slices. Place in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until cheese just begins to melt; remove from oven. Layer with thin slices of steak, fried onions and another topping of blue cheese.
4. Bake another 5-6 minutes until blue cheese is melted. Garnish with thinly sliced scallions and sweet peppers. Serve immediately.
