Grilled Filet with Mack's famous blue cheese dressing

Posted by Jim Rolfe on

Uses: This is a good hardy salad, so serve with a heavy meal like steak

Inspirations: This simple salad came from my dad – Mack Rolfe

Serves: 4


  • 2 nice 8 oz beef filets
  • 1-2 heads of romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup of crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 cloves of garlic
  • .25 cup of balsamic vinegar (make sure you don’t skimp – it must cost at least $15 per bottle
  • .5 cup of veg oil
  • Few slices of red onion
  • Rolfe Rub
  • Wood bowl – if you don’t have one, then go out and buy one


  • Finely chop garlic and rub into wood bowl
  • Add the balsamic vinegar
  • Add 1 cup of the crumbled blue cheese
  • Using a whisk and fork, mash the blue cheese and whisk with the vinegar (you want it a bit chunky)
  • Drizzle in the oil
  • Season filet with Rolfe Rub and grill. Internal temp around 125-130 and let rest for 10 mins
  • While steaks are resting - cut romaine heads in half and grill on 400 for 5 mins (no oil or seasoning)
  • Remove lettuce to a plate, add a bit of red onion, pinch of Rolfe rub, sliced filet and sprinkle on the dressing and
  • enjoy
