Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola Sauce

Tom was flipping through a cookbook I have and I was shocked when he saw this recipe and said he wants me to make it. He strongly dislikes blue cheese and all of her close relatives. I asked him if he knew that gorgonzola cheese was very similar to blue cheese. He assured me that he did, so I added the recipe onto the next weeks’ rotation.

Ingredients:

    • 4 6-oz. filets
    • 1 tbsp. butter
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1/4 tsp. rosemary, minced
    • 1 tbsp. flour
    • 1/3 cup low-fat milk
    • 1/3 cup fat-free half-and-half
    • 2 tbsp. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
    • salt and pepper

Directions:
1. Preheat a grill or broiler.
2. Season both sides of the filets with salt and pepper.
3. Grill for 4-8 minutes on each side, depending on your desired doneness. (2″ thick steak for 6 minutes on each side should be medium rare.) Set steaks on a plate to let rest.
4. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add the garlic and rosemary and cook for 1 minute.
5. Stir in the flour with a whisk to make a paste, then whisk in the milk and half-and-half. Cook, stirring frequently for 4 minutes or until the mixture has thickened.
6. Add the gorgonzola cheese and stir until smooth.
7. Serve each filet topped with 3 tbsp. of the cheese sauce.

I could pretty much drink this sauce. It’s absolutely delicious over the steaks.

  1. So did Tom like it? I know I would! I love blue cheese and all of it's relatives! This looks like a great steak sauce.

  2. Well? Did he like it?

  3. Haha, writing posts when tired means you leave out important information. Yep, he definitely liked it. Shocked me!
