Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola

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 "

Made this tonight using fillets. I'm allergic to bleu cheese and didn't have any feta, so I subbed in some crumbled goat cheese. I used a heavy bottom stainless steel skillet for cooking both onions and the steak. The onions were amazing and had just the right amount of sweetness to them. My husband doesn't normally like a lot of onion but he ate all that was on his plate. I did cheat a little with my steak. I used kosher salt and sprinkled it liberally on both sides of the steak. I got this tip from another blog about pan searing steaks. I got a beautiful crust on both sides and didn't have to add anything else to the steak. In fact, even without the onions, the steak tasted amazing! I'm so happy to have tried this recipe; I now have a go to recipe to make steak for one when my husband is deployed!


how many oz pre cooking should each steak weigh?

My new favorite steak

I usually like steak with very little done to it. If it's cooked perfectly, that's all I need! This preparation was so so so good though! I may never be able to eat plain steak again.

true to cooking times, flavorful, fast, easy
Absolutely Delicious!

This was SO delicious! One of the best things I have ever eaten! I never write reviews but felt I had to for this one!!! You will not be sorry if you make this!!! Enjoy!!!


I used just regular steak, not fillets, from my dad's farm-raised cattle. Followed the recipe as it is written. My husband doesn't care for onions, but that's ok, I ate all the extras! The flavors of the onions in the sauce and the gorgonzola cheese are to die for! Like the others said, this is really restaurant quality! I will be making this recipe for years to come!

I made this as listed but

I made this as listed but doubled the recipe. Absolutely delicious! I probably wouldn't double the brown sugar when I make this again. Though, my company ate them all up and asked for the recipe. Really good and simple recipe.
