  • 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.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
