This evening, before the downpour began, I had a serious craving for some steak. I have to be completely honest with you, I’ve never been that great at steak, but this one turned out pretty phenomenal. Maybe it had something to do with the Gorgonzola garlic butter I whipped up while waiting for the potatoes to boil. Maybe it was all that butter I used in general. Either way, here’s a recipe for a quick fix that will make your meal taste that much better.
Gorgonzola Garlic Butter.
3 garlic cloves.
3/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola.
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature).
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Peel garlic cloves and wrap in aluminum foil.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Blend Gorgonzola, butter, and baked garlic cloves (should be mushy now) together.
Chill in refrigerator for at least 10 minutes, preferably 30. I only waited about 15.
Add a dollop of the Gorgonzola garlic butter on top of a steak while it’s still hot.
Suggestions: I served this on grilled filet mignon (unseasoned), with mushrooms sauteed in garlic butter and garlic mashed potatoes. It sounds like a lot of garlic, but I swear it’s amazing!
