I have a thing for cooking. It’s like a challenge to me, and I’m in it to win it. I love making recipes that I’ve found online and giving them my own twist to perfect it, like this Steak Gorgonzola that is a copycat Olive Garden recipe.
Funny thing is, I’ve never even had it at Olive Garden although it’s one of my favorite places! My mom however, gets this every time she’s there so I knew it had to be good.
Now that I’ve tried my own version, I have it say, IT IS GREAT!
Here is the recipe i used, let me know if you try this and if it tastes like Olive Garden’s version!
What you need:
1 pack Gorgonzola Cheese
2 Strip Steaks cut into cubes (or buy already cubed)
1/2 box Fettuccini Noodles
1 jar Alfredo sauce (I used Bertolli)
Balsamic Glaze (I use Cento brand) for serving
1cup Fresh Spinach leaves
1/2 cup Fresh Green Onions
Lemon Juice (half fresh Lemon or bottle lemon squeeze – a few squirts)
Italian Dressing (for marinade)
1 tablespoon Butter
Fresh Rosemary (chopped)
Take the Italian Dressing, lemon and chopped rosemary and marinate the steak cubes for one hour. After an hour…
Add Alfredo into a small pot with 3 tablespoons of the gorgonzola cheese (a little goes a long way!) Simmer on medium heat until the cheese is melted in and it starts to bubble up. Then add spinach and chopped green onions. Keep on slow simmer, careful not to burn.
Add water to a pot, follow box Fettuccini directions.
In a pan, start butter frying, and add steak with some Italian Dressing on it getting into pan, but not all and leave cubes long enough to brown nicely on each side. As the butter, steak juice, and Italian Dressing that was on the steak starts to blend together as the steak cooks, it’ll turn clear. Once steak is cooked to your liking, toss it in all of the juices and set aside.
Once noodles are done, strain and toss with gorgonzola Alfredo sauce.
Plate steak on top, drizzle with balsamic glaze, garnish with some crumbled gorgonzola, and fresh chopped parsley (also sun dried tomatoes which I didn’t have on hand).
