Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola

November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (94 votes)

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.

"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 "

I am a vegetarian but I made this for my fiancee who loved it. I did a few things different. I got the bacon wrapped fillets and took off the bacon and cut them in half through the middle. I also added more salt and pepper to the top of the fillets when cooking them so they had more flavor. I added blue cheese on the top and put a little more than the recipe called for. This went over really well with my fiancee, he was literally praising it the whole time he ate it. He liked it so much he ate all of it in one sitting. Very easy to cook and clean and apparently really tasty!


There should be a sixth star for Sublime! Well, the steak, anyway. The carmelized onions were too sweet for my taste. Next time no sugar, just balsamic vinegar.

It was great! I used the bacon wrapped Fillet Mignon (not so healthy...). I also added some mushrooms. I didn't cook the onion long enough but it was still nice and tender.


The steak had no flavor at all. I think next time I'm going to marinade my steak how I usually do it and add the onions and cheese. The onions had such great flavor, and the blue cheese worked well with the steak and the onions. I just think there needs to be more flavor in the steak.

If you thought it had no flavor at all why the five star rating???

Honestly, how could you even tell with the strong flavors of the gorgonzola, onions, balsamic, and sugar?? I thought it was sublime.


Loved it! Didn't use brown sugar. I like to use the natural sugar of the onion to caramelize the onion. Steak was cooked perfectly to mid rare. Awesome!
