My favorite Gorgonzola sauce

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.
