Rib-Eye Steaks with Gorgonzola Butter

June 28, 2010

This is for the steak lover with the added splurge of Gorgonzola.  It does not get much better than this if you love these two ingredients.  Although I am perfectly fine having a steak cooked just own its own merits there are times to go the extra few steps to make it a celebration of a meal, and this recipe will do exactly that.

Rib-Eye Steaks with Gorgonzola Butter

 Ingredients

  • 2 Rib Eye Steaks (approx. 1-1 1/2″ thick, 3/4 lb.)
  • 1 T. Olive Oil
  • 2 T. Unsalted Butter
  • Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper

 Preparation

  1. Brush steaks with olive oil, season with salt and pepper
  2. Heat a grill pan to medium high heat
  3. Add 2 steaks to grill pan and cook until desired doneness (about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare)
  4. Add the butter the last moment to finish
  5. Serve with the Gorgonzola butter
