Why We Love This Entrée
- The inspiration behind this amazing dish comes from the “Curley House Special.” It’s a treasured recipe that Kalynne and her husband Clayton make frequently, and we had to share it with you.
- Gorgonzola butter is the most delicious way to finish off a grilled steak—the perfect option if you are looking for a unique meal to serve at a special occasion or romantic dinner.
- There are so many side dish options to pair with this meal. We love to serve it with an avocado tomato romaine salad, and dijon balsamic dressing, or go all out with baked potatoes and all the toppings. See more side ideas here.
Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make this delicious steak.
Steak – we use petite sirloin steak, but you can use your favorite cut.
Seasoning – we use 5-0 rub (or whatever we have on hand), although any steak rub will work. You can also season it with classic salt and pepper.
Gorgonzola Butter Topping
Butter – salted or unsalted butter.
Gorgonzola – crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, often found in the specialty cheese section of the grocery store.
Garlic salt – use regular garlic salt or substitute with a garlic powder and salt mixture using a 3:1 ratio of salt to powder.
Pepper – ground black pepper.
Is Gorgonzola the same as Blue Cheese?
While both Gorgonzola and Blue Cheese fall under the category of blue-veined cheeses and share some similarities, they are not exactly the same. Gorgonzola is a specific type of Italian cheese, traditionally made from cow’s milk, and known for its rich and creamy texture. It has a milder and less pungent flavor compared to some varieties of blue cheese.
On the other hand, Blue Cheese is a broader term that encompasses various types of cheeses with blue veins running through them. These cheeses can be made from different types of milk and may have a stronger and more pronounced flavor. So, while they have similarities, Gorgonzola and Blue Cheese have distinct characteristics that set them apart.

How to Make Steak with Gorgonzola Butter
Follow these simple steps to make this delicious dinner.
Note: we prefer to grill our steaks and then top with gorgonzola butter and broil. But you can cook the steaks any way you prefer and then follow the recipe instructions for the topping.
Step 1 | preheat grill
Prepare to cook the steaks by pre-heating your grill on high. Once heated, clean the grill if needed.
Step 2 | Season steaks with rub
Coat the steaks on both sides generously with steak rub.
We use 5-0 rub, but you can use your favorite steak or beef seasoning. You can also season it with classic salt and pepper.
Step 3 | Sear steaks on both sides
On high heat (about 450°F), sear the steaks on both sides.
Step 4 | Use indirect heat to finish cooking
Next, turn off the heat on one burner (or one side) of the grill. Move the steaks to the side you turned off. (This is called indirect grilling where food is placed to the side of the heat source.)
Grill until the desired doneness is achieved. Keep in mind that the steaks will cook a bit more when broiling.
Step 5 | Mix gorgonzola topping
While you are grilling the steaks, you can prepare the Gorgonzola mixture. Add the garlic salt and pepper to the Gorgonzola cheese crumbles.
Step 6 | Add melted butter
Melt the butter and add to the Gorgonzola mixture. Mix all ingredients well.
Step 7 | Prepare a sheet pan
Cover a baking pan with aluminum foil.
Step 8 | Place steaks on the prepared pan
Move the steaks from the grill to the foil-covered baking sheet.
Step 9 | Top steaks with gorgonzola butter
Top each steak with a generous amount of the Gorgonzola cheese mixture.
Step 10 | Broil on high for 2 to 3 minutes
Broil the steaks on high in the oven. (Leave the oven door open while broiling.)
The steak will be sizzling, and the Gorgonzola topping will be golden brown.
Step 11 | serve & Enjoy
Immediately serve the steaks sizzling hot, as they will cool down quickly.
Should you rest your steak? It is typically recommended to allow steak to rest for 5 minutes before enjoying it to lock the juices in. But in our opinion—it doesn’t make that much of a difference. We’d rather enjoy the gorgonzola topping while it’s hot!
