Steak with a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Sharing is caring!

My husband had a very specific request for his birthday: steak with a Gorgonzola cream sauce. I immediately decided to pair the steak with fully loaded bullet potatoes and spinach and goat cheese stuffed portabella mushrooms because those are two of his favorites. For dessert I made apple crumble, which is his favorite dessert and very easy to prepare.

I bought all of the groceries at my favorite grocery store: Mariano’s. Fellow Chicagoans you must check this place out. I think I am going to only shop there from now on. I told the butcher my plan to make my husband a special birthday dinner. The butcher is one of the friendliest people in the world and he insisted on getting a bigger thicker steak from our back. Perfect. As you can see it didn’t really fit on the plate, but Charles ate every bite. I bought myself a filet because I can’t eat a pound of meat.

The butcher pointed out that a porterhouse steak is so juicy and flavorful that you don’t really need a Gorgonzola cream sauce with it, and Charles agreed. So while the sauce was delicious, it wasn’t necessary.

The steak was coated generously with salt and pepper and then cooked on a grill pan – over high heat for about 8 minutes a side.

For the gorgonzola cream sauce you will need:

  • 1 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola
  • 1 tablespoon chopped Parsley
  • 1 Shallot
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil

Step 1:

Chop the shallot. Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan and saute the shallot.

Step 2:

Once the shallot has softened add the cream and cheese. Stir together and let the cheese melt. Stir in the parsley. Serve warm.

4/9/13- I just made the cream sauce for some fish. It was amazing! Everyone ended up putting it over the mashed potatoes too.

The sauce is addictive! Glad you liked it. I wouldn't have thought of putting it in fish. Great idea.

This sounds great - one my many goals this year is to learn to cook a steak (was raised vegetarian - long story...) and I love the idea of pairing with gorgonzola cheese.

Isn't Mariano's the best? We just stopped in today-- it's my favorite for buying meat and fish. And my husband's firm designed most of them too. :)
