8 medium portobello mushrooms, stems removed (about 1 3/4 pounds)
1/4 cup olive oil
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)
Blue Cheese Butter
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons chopped rehydrated sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Combine garlic, thyme and pepper; press evenly onto beef steaks. Set aside.
Brush mushrooms with oil. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange mushrooms around steaks. Grill steaks, covered, for 10 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill for 9 to 14 minutes) for medium rare (145 degrees F) to medium (160 degrees F) doneness, turning occasionally. Grill mushrooms for 16 to 18 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 12 to 15 minutes) or until tender, turning occasionally.
Meanwhile, combine Blue Cheese Butter ingredients in small bowl until well blended.
If desiring to make Ribeye Steak Sandwiches later, cover and refrigerate 2 steaks, 4 mushrooms and 1/2 cup Blue Cheese Butter. Spread remaining Blue Cheese Butter over remaining 2 steaks. Coarsely chop remaining 4 mushrooms; divide evenly among 4 plates. Carve steaks into slices; arrange evenly over mushrooms. Season with salt, as desired. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
