How do I spoil my boys on Valentine’s Day you might ask… well, I make them this recipe for steak with chipotle cream sauce of course!
Steak and potatoes is enough to put a HUGE smile on the faces of my husband and son.
But, since it was a special occasion I went ahead and made them a spicy chipotle cream sauce as well.
And let’s just say I think these boys are gonna keep me around for awhile 😉
How to make steak with chipotle cream sauce
I got two New York strips from the butcher, but any steak that you prefer will work just fine.
First season both sides with olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, and I also used a steak seasoning blend.
Preheat the grill to medium high for several minutes and place the steaks on the grill grates.
I usually recommend a cook time of 3 to 5 minutes per side with steaks.
The exact time will of course be determined by how thick the steaks are and how you like them cooked.
I cooked these around 3 1/2 minutes per side and removed them when the internal temperature was 135 degrees.
That way after the steaks rested they were the perfect temperature for us, which is between medium rare and medium.
As the steaks rested I made the sauce.
First set a small skillet over high heat and add 2 tablespoons of butter.
Once the butter has melted add some diced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, half and half, garlic, Dijon mustard, fresh cilantro, kosher salt, and pepper.
We like things pretty spicy around here so I used a little over half of the can of peppers that I finally diced with a sharp knife.
I recommend adding some of the diced chipotle peppers at first, then tasting and see if you would like the sauce to be more spicy.
My motto is you can always add more peppers to increase the spice level, but it’s pretty hard to fix if you make it too spicy.
Once the sauce comes to a boil reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 6 to 9 minutes.
Stir the sauce several times as it bubbles away, it will thicken as it cooks.
My Valentine’s were more than excited to dig into steak with chipotle cream sauce!
I served a side of potatoes with these steaks.
And let me just say the sauce is insanely amazing on the potatoes as well!

Steak with Chipotle Cream Sauce
- 2 steaks of choice (I used New York Strips)
- olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, steak seasoning blend of choice (optional)
- 1 7 oz can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (you won't use the whole can but this is the only size I found)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups half and half
- 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon garlic paste or minced garlic
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- Drizzle both sides of the steaks with olive oil and season well with kosher salt, pepper, and steak seasoning blend of choice if using.
- Preheat the grill to medium high and place the steaks on the grill for 3 to 5 per side, depending on the thickness of your steaks and how you like them cooked.Note: I removed mine from the grill when the internal temp was 135 degrees so they were between medium rare and medium after they rested.
- After removing the steaks from the grill let them rest while you make the sauce. Finely dice about half the can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (more or less depending on your spice preference).
- Set a small skillet over high heat and add the butter. Once the butter has melted add some of the diced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, half and half, cilantro, garlic, Dijon mustard, kosher salt, and pepper.
- Bring the sauce to a boil, watching carefully and if it bubbles up simply remove from the heat for a moment. Once it boils reduce the heat to medium low for 6 to 9 minutes, continuing to stir several times.Note: Taste for seasoning during cooking and add more chipotle peppers, kosher salt, and/or pepper if needed.
- The sauce will thicken as it cooks and will get a little thicker after removing it from the heat. Serve the steaks with the chipotle cream sauce over top.Note: I served this with potatoes, the sauce was so good with the potatoes too!
