    Great combination of flavours. I didn't think steak could get any tastier than on its own, but I was wrong. Wonderful addition!  -  15 Aug 2011


    Great recipe. I made the butter mixture in a mortar & pestle rather than the processor. Also, I used parmesan cheese instead of the gorgonzola. The flavours really worked well together.  -  17 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    A very tasty dish. The spicy gorgonzola butter is delicious, it melts to the meat if you add it right away after taking the meat off the grill and the way the flavors blend is marvelous!  -  15 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
