I also made this for my husband and I last night. I omitted the brown sugar (I just simply forgot it!). My husband couldn't believe this was healthy! I paired this with bacon mashed potatoes (also from this site)...both of us felt like we were "cheating" on our diet! This dinner was way better than ANY steak place we've ever been to, and living in Los Angeles, we've been to all of the "best" ones! I used grass-fed, hormone & antibiotic-free fillets and cooked them to medium-rare...I topped the steaks with Maytag Blue cheese (that was organic from grass-fed cows) and put the onions on top of the cheese-topped fillets & mashed potatoes. An absolutely DEVINE dinner! We ended it with chocolate truffle cheesecake (from this site also) which is TO DIE FOR!! Excellent dinner!!
Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola
From EatingWell: November/December 2008
In our humble opinion, steak is best topped with sweet caramelized onions and salty Gorgonzola cheese. We recommend seeking out good-quality Gorgonzola for the best flavor, but any will work. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed carrots.
17 Reviews for Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola
I made this recipe this week for my husband and I. We are working on eating healthier. This recipe tasted better than most steak dinners in a restaurant. My husband said I could make every night. It was outstanding. We paired it with mashed potatoes and sauteed asparagus.
I followed the cooking times exactly, and these steaks came out just the way we like them! Slicing 2 onions seems excessive, but they cook down a lot and we ended up using almost all of them. The balsamic with the sugar makes such a yummy sauce. Cook the onions in the brown sugar until almost all of the liquid is gone. I made my steaks in another pan while the onions were cooking to save time. The gorgonzola cheese was a must! My husband hates it, but I didn't tell him it was on the steak and he never even noticed.
I halved this recipe for two of us and it worked great. Steaks were perfect and the onions were delish. Had it with mashed potatoes and mixed broccoli, cauliflower and baby carrots. YUM
ooks good, but what about side dish?
