  6. Prepare grill for 500 F direct heat.
  7. For medium-rare, place steaks on grill 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook 2-3 minutes, or until 130-140 F internal temperature is reached.
  8. Rest 7-8 minutes before serving.
  9. Slice chilled blue cheese chive butter into 1/2-inch pieces and place on top of filets.
