I usually make a gorgonzola sauce 2-3x/year, sometimes with asparagus tips in it. And a shallot/shroom/balsamic vinegar sauce maybe 2x/year. But considering I eat steak just about once every week, sometimes twice, I'm more in the no sauce is good sauce camp. I just play around with sauces for a change.

When I produce crappy steaks there's A-1 in the fridge.
When I produce good steaks I pour its own bloody juice over it.

On the rare occasion that I even have steak then I might choose teriyaki (well, i lived in Japan for a while). With roast beef I like horseradish and au jus. I like filet mignon just sans accoutrements.

We have A1 and Heinz 57 but they usually don't get used much on steak. We'll use them on steak sandwiches and hamburgers more than steak. I cook my steaks with onion salt, garlic salt and pepper which gives the meat a good flavor that doesn't need anything else.

The only "sauce" I like is before eating steak... about 2 oz. of bourbon neat.
On a well selected and cooked Rib-eye, Porter House, T-bone, Strip or Top Sirloin no sauce is required or needed....That is unless you don't like the taste of good beef!

My wife likes a bit of A-1 on her steaks.
I, too, am in the No Sauce camp, but I do like to grill
them with a compound butter. I slather it on before and after.

That blue cheese with a steak idea sounds lovely, I will have to try it!
