  • 2 1 1/2-inch-thick strip steaks (about 11/2 lbs) 
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper 
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil 
  • 6 cloves garlic, in their skins 
  • 2 bunches cherry tomatoes on the vine (about 1 1/2 lbs)
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp. crumbled blue cheese (about 1 oz)
  • Arugula salad, for serving


  1. Heat oven to 450°F. Heat large cast-iron skillet on medium-high. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Add 1 teaspoon oil to skillet, then add steaks and garlic and cook until steaks are browned, 3 minutes per side.
  2. Place tomatoes on the vine and rosemary in skillet, drizzle with 2 teaspoon oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer skillet to oven and roast until steak is at desired doneness and tomatoes begin to slightly break down, 3 to 4 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer steaks to cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes before serving. Transfer tomatoes and garlic to platter; squeeze garlic cloves from skins.
  3. In small bowl, combine vinegar, remaining 3 tablespoon oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; stir in onion and fold in blue cheese. Serve steak, tomatoes and garlic drizzled with vinaigrette, and arugula salad.
