If you are a steak lover, this recipe is for you. It is simple and yet the results are delicious.

This simple topping uses only two ingredients, but the tangy and mellow flavors combined with the hearty and smokiness of the meat makes this a family favorite. We also use it on ribs (pictured) and pork chops.

The topping has the right combination of flavors that it will enhance just about any simple cut of meat. Even hamburgers are the perfect foundation for this rich and tasty topping. The possibilities are endless.


Belle’s Steak Gorgonzola

¼ cup crumbled Gorgonzola

¼ cup butter, softened

4 steaks (rib eye, sirloin, New York)

4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Garlic salt

Black pepper

Mix together the cheese and butter. Set aside. Rub each steak with oil and then place on a hot grill or griddle. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. For medium rare turn after three minutes. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper and cook another three minutes. Remove from heat and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Top each steak with the cheese and butter mixture and set under the broiler for about two minutes or until the topping starts to bubble.
