spicy steak surprise


  • 5 oz (150 g) Canadian Migneron cheese cut into 4 thick slices
  • 4 sirloin steaks at least 5 oz (150 g) each
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) coriander seeds crushed
  • 2 to 3 tbsp (30 to 45 mL) coarse ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter


Preheat oven to 375 °F (190 °C).

Slice and open the steaks towards the thickest part, without cutting all the way through (butterflied) and flatten with a butcher's mallet or frying pan. Place the cheese slices inside the steaks. Close the meat making sure the cheese is well sealed inside.

Mix the coriander seeds, black pepper and salt. Coat the steaks with this mixture.

Heat the oil over a medium high heat and melt the butter.

Brown the steaks quickly on each side. Continue cooking in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes or according to desired doneness and thickness of the meat. The cheese should start melting inside the meat. Véronique Gagnon-Lalanne, chef
