Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Sounds fancy, huh?

Believe it or not, this is an extremely easy dish to make.

I’ll be honest with you: I rarely cook steak.  I tend to leave the steak cookin’ to Dustin because he’s a master at grilling.

Me?  Not so much.  I’ll take my oven and stove, thank you very much.

But, sometimes, we do things to broaden our horizons, stretch our boundaries, improve our abilities.  Or, at least, with that goal in mind.

This was one of those times.

It all started when Dustin and I were out to dinner at a steak house in Austin.  Dustin ordered a filet mignon with a bleu cheese sauce he really enjoyed and suggested I try my hand at making such a dish.  Now, I don’t really care for bleu cheese (I know, I know…and I still somehow call myself a foodie!) but I thought a gorgonzola cream sauce might be a happy medium for me.

And it was.

This cream sauce is quite simple, but the depth of flavor and texture compliment the tender filet very nicely.

Though I still prefer to leave the steaks to Dustin, I can now rest assured I have a go-to filet mignon recipe I can cook on the stove.  And, of course, that I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, if only for a minute or two.

Ingredients
For the filets:
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 1- inch to 1 1/2-inch thick filets
  • kosher salt to coat
  • ground black pepper to coat
For the Gorgonzola Sauce:
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot minced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 heaping tbsp. crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • 2-3 tbsp heavy cream
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high to high heat.  Add the butter and allow to melt.  Generously coat each side with kosher salt and pepper.  Add filets to the hot pan.  Cook 3-4 minutes, allowing for the cooking side to create a nice browned crust, and then flip.  Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes on this side.  Set aside on a clean plate and cover with aluminum foil while you cook your sauce.
  2. Heat a clean sauce pan over medium heat.  Add the butter and allow to melt.  Add shallot and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add garlic and cook for one minute.  Add gorgonzola and stir to help melt.  Once cheese as melted, add heavy cream, 2 tbsp. at first, and stir to incorporate.  If you'd like a thinner sauce, add the additional tbsp. of cream.  Season with kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste.  Drizzle over filet mignon and serve.

  1. Can I substitute low-fat milk for the heavy cream? I’m making this tonight and I have everything except the cream lol

  2. Yes! We all are deeply interested in your healthy relationship! We do not come here for the recipes, oh no, not at all. Please, tell us more about your cute family, grill guru husband and all your pets in every recipe! Because we care! Sooo cute!

    1. Hi Nancy. Unfortunately, not at the moment. On the newer recipes, I have a format that allows for easy printing and I’m working on updating the older recipes. I’d recommend copying just the recipe and pasting into a word doc in the meantime. This is definitely something we are eager to update ASAP on the site.
