This recipe rates low on effort and way high on flavor, ideal for serving at your next party. You can have a couple of plates of Steak Brie Canapes ready and passed on to the mouths of your guests in 20 mins.

This is a rich dish which means a little goes a long way. Be warned thought, it’s so darn tasty you are likely to have folks begging for more. Deal with this information as you wish. You can double up and make another batch, or allow for 2-3 per person and leave them wanting more. However, only choose the latter path if you have some other really tasty food to follow.

A 1 1/2 inch thick steak is needed for this recipe. The steak should be marbled evenly to avoid serving slices with a high percentage of fat. I mean, let’s be honest, ribeye fat is super tasty but not when mixed with a mound of cheese.

Any brie will work fine, but I prefer to use Fromager d’Affinois. Fromager d’Affinois is much like brie, but has a higher fat content and will give a richer finish. Any fig preserve or spread will do, but if you can only find one with additional ingredients such as thyme or orange that will work too.
