Cheese Steak Calzones w/ Blue Cheese and Wine Sauce

Dyal_SCDyal_SC Posts: 4,189

First of all, I cannot even begin to articulate my appreciation for all of our active military and veterans out there.  May God bless each and every one of you, as well as your families.  Let us never forget.

To kick off this Memorial Day weekend, my wife and I decided to do something a little bit different.  We had Pizza Dough and a Flat Iron Steak in the freezer and we decided to take both out last night.  I remembered seeing a post on another forum about the "million dollar cheese steak" that included a sauce made out of Blue Cheese, Heavy Cream and White Wine.  So I put my own twist on things and whipped this up...Cheese Steak Calzones with a Blue Cheese and Wine Sauce.

First up was the Flat Iron Steak.  I seasoned it with Truffled Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper. 











While I waited for the Steak to rest, I sautéed some Portobello Mushrooms and Onions to go inside the Calzones as well.



I also whipped up a Blue Cheese and Wine Sauce concoction.  It was killer!  :)  I started with a Sauce Pan with EVOO that was heated to medium to medium high.  Then added in one big crushed clove of fresh Garlic.  Let that get happy for a minute or two, then added in 2 TBSP of Pinot Grigio.  Let that simmer for a couple minutes, then added in 1 cup of Heavy Whipping Cream.  Once that came up to a simmer, I seasoned it with some S&P.  Then I added 6 ounces of Crumbled Blue Cheese and 1/3 cup freshly grated Mozzarella and stirred until it mostly melted.  At this point, I took the pot off the burner and allowed the Cheese mixture to cool to room temp before adding it to the Calzone.



Brushed the top of the Calzones with an Egg Wash mixture before placing them on the BGE.






And right before they were finished, I sprinkled on some Truffled Sea Salt to finish them off.



These were freaking amazing and will be repeated!  :D  My wife said she could have eaten the Blue Cheese Sauce with a spoon.  I'd have to agree.  :D

    Oh my lord, once again @Dyal_SC has made me insanely jealous of what he is eating.  Fabulous looking calzones.

    Thanks are appreciated but not necessary. We all volunteered.

    G@dyal_sc what temp and time do you typically do these? Your post made me make up a batch of dough for tomorrow. Really awesome looking meal- always impressive

    @Wolfpack, I usually do these around 500 deg f for 15 or so minutes. Yesterday, I was running low on lump, so I preheated the egg to around 425-450 deg f dome temp. Preheated the stone at that temp for 20 straight minutes before throwing the calzones on. I don't know how long it took. I just peeked at them through the daisy wheel with my iphone's flashlight app until they looked golden enough. :)
  • WolfpackWolfpack Posts: 1,971
    Awesome- will let you know how they turn out

  • @dyal_sc is that wax paper under the calzone on the stone?

  • Dyal_SCDyal_SC Posts: 4,189
    @NeilTheBeerGuy , that is parchment paper. It allows you to get the calzones onto the stone without using a pizza peel. You can remove the paper by sliding it out after a few minutes of the dough cooking.
