  • Preheat a lightly oiled grill or grill-pan to medium-high heat.
  • Season the steaks generously with salt and freshly ground pepper. Grill for 3 minutes per side for medium-rare or to your desired temperature. Set aside and tent with foil.
  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter and olive oil. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic and cook for one minute, and then immediately add the shrimp, or else the garlic will burn. Add the shrimp and season with salt and freshly ground pepper and cook until it just turns pink. Add the cream and bring to a boil, and simmer for one to two minutes, until reduced, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and immediately stir in cheese.
  • Platter the steaks and pour over the shrimp and sauce. Serve immediately and enjoy.

Mary would like to thank the lovely, generous people who gave me stuffed toys for her while I was on book tour. As you can see, she thoroughly enjoyed them last night when I returned home. Would you mind coming over this morning to clean up their guts, which have been strewn in every nook and cranny of our apartment. Thanks! 😘
