my favorite gorgonzola sauceThis stuff is SO good and is the PERFECT sauce to top a nice steak , but I like it on almost anything. I often slice up steak pieces into fajita size strips and grill them in olive oil, salt, pepper. Meanwhile I cook up some veggie rotini pasta, grill whatever vegetables I have to grill and mix it all together with a batch of this sauce. It’s like gourmet mac and cheese!
Here’s the recipe:
Gorgonzola Mushroom Sauce
adapted from a recipe by Giada De Laurentiis
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 clove chopped garlic
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
2 Tbsp white wine
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 freshly ground black pepper
3 ounces (about 3 tablespoons) Gorgonzola
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2-3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
While grilling steak to desired doneness, prepare sauce.
Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and cook until tender, (wait a few minutes on the mushrooms as they cook faster). Add the thyme, white wine, salt, and pepper and continue to cook until all of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 more minutes.
Meanwhile, put the Gorgonzola, mayonnaise, yogurt and mustard in a food processor and combine until smooth. Transfer the Gorgonzola mixture to the skillet and gently stir it into the mushroom mixture.
