    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Tenderloin steaks 2 (6-ounce)
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Fresh ground pepper, to taste
    Olive oil 1 teaspoon
    Parsley, finely chopped 2 + 2 teaspoons
    Clove garlic, minced 1
    Reduced-fat cream cheese 2 tablespoons
    Crumbled bleu cheese 2 tablespoons
    Jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped (optional) ½
    Small shallot, finely chopped ½
    White wine vinegar ½ teaspoon
    1. Season steaks with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil, and rub with 2 teaspoons parsley and garlic. Let stand 10 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, prepare indoor or outdoor grill, and mix together 2 teaspoons parsley, cream cheese, bleu cheese, jalapeno, shallot, and vinegar in a small bowl until smooth.
    3. Grill steaks, turning after about 5-7 minutes. After turning, spread half of bleu cheese mixture on each steak, and cook an additional 5-7 minutes, until desired degree of doneness is achieved (topping will soften).
