  1. Season steaks with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil, and rub with 2 teaspoons parsley and garlic. Let stand 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare indoor or outdoor grill, and mix together 2 teaspoons parsley, cream cheese, bleu cheese, jalapeno, shallot, and vinegar in a small bowl until smooth.
