Why You’ll Love Steak Gorgonzola

The crumbled gorgonzola sauce is what makes this dish so insanely tasty. In case it’s your first time hearing about this funky Italian cheese, gorgonzola is a type of blue cheese that has a strong smell. But whoah, it’s so tasty and worth trying, especially when paired with mushrooms.

Steak Gorgonzola Ingredients

  • Cut of Steak – NY Strip Steaks are a good choice for this recipe. They bring tenderness, robust flavor, and well-defined marbling; ribeye steaks are another solid option. 
  • Neutral Oil – Canola oil is my go-to vegetable oil. Olive oil, grapeseed oil, and avocado oil are other alternatives, but mainly with the high smoke point being the key. 
  • Unsalted Butter – In this steak recipe, the butter helps with the basting.
  • SeasoningsSpiceology Bourbon Prime seasons the steak, while the garlic and fresh thyme become part of the melted butter that infuses the steaks with so much flavor.

Gorgonzola Mushroom Cream Sauce Ingredients

  • Mushrooms – Baby bellas are a great choice to complement the steak.  
  • Seasonings – Worcestershire sauce and garlic are all this sauce needs for a killer flavor profile. If you don’t have fresh garlic, feel free to use garlic powder here.
  • The Cream – Heavy cream or heavy whipping cream along with gorgonzola provides the creamy base for the creamy gorgonzola sauce. Gorgonzola is easy to source at your local grocery store; it should be crumbled not whipped. 

Easy recipes like this one for creamy steak with gorgonzola turn into a favorite meal that your entire family will love. Juicy steak and a creamy cheese sauce will never bore your taste buds!

How to Make Steak with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

When you’re ready to get started on this killer steak recipe, go ahead and generously season the strip steaks with my Bourbon Prime Spirit-Infused Blend. Then, let them reach room temperature as you preheat the grill.

Inside a cast iron skillet over a roaring fire, sear the steaks for about 4 minutes per side in hot oil.

Melt butter into the pan on medium-high heat after the first flip along with some garlic and thyme for basting.

Once seared to perfection, set the steaks aside to rest, and then we can turn our attention to crafting the incredible cheese sauce.

As the steak rests, introduce the sliced mushrooms into the heavy skillet. Allow them to cook and brown, releasing their flavors and expelling any excess water.

Mixing together the gorgonzola cheese sauce.

Once the liquid evaporates, it’s time for the Worcestershire sauce, garlic, heavy cream, and gorgonzola cheese. Now, let these ingredients meld into a luscious sauce, thickening to perfection.

Dinner is ready, which means a symphony of flavors is on the way!  

A Marinade for Extra Bourbon Flavor

Before grilling, allow the steak to marinate in a mixture of olive oil, minced garlic, rosemary, thyme, black pepper, and then a generous splash of your favorite bourbon. Aim for at least 30 minutes to an hour of marination time in the refrigerator, before seasoning the steaks and letting them come up to room temperature.

What to Serve with Gorgonzola Steaks

These steaks smothered in the creamy sauce are the perfect companion for pasta with a side of fresh spinach sautéed in garlic. And, in my opinion, the best way to enjoy such bold and rich flavors is with a glass of bourbon. 

How to Store and Reheat

After enjoying Steak Gorgonzola, go ahead and refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days. When reheating, delicately warm the steak on the grill, preferably wrapped in aluminum foil packets with a splash of red wine to retain moisture.

Can I use a different cut of steak for Gorgonzola Steak with Cream?

Yes, you can choose your preferred cut of steak such as a ribeye or filet mignon.

Can I substitute the mushrooms for something else?

Sundried tomatoes are another great option that always complements a creamy Gorgonzola sauce. You could also experiment with some artichoke hearts.

I’m not a fan of Gorgonzola. What other cheese can I use? 

Not a fan of Gorgonzola or other blue cheeses? No worries. You can go ahead and substitute it with half jack cheese and freshly grated Parmesan cheese for an equally satisfying umami experience.
