Skillet Steak with Gorgonzola Butter

Cooks Note:  So, as you can see from the picture above, I made the previously posted Ranch potatoes with the Skillet Steak, cause what is steak without potatoes right? And let me just say, if it wasn't totally weird to just eat butter with a spoon, I could have just eaten the butter! Don't get me wrong, the steak was delicious, but this butter is A-MAZING. Super simple, just mix the cheese, butter and parsley and you are done. The steaks were good in the skillet (cast iron for me), but they did take a long time to cook through since they were kind of thick. I think doing this on the grill would be great as well, but since Mother Nature decided to dump some snow on us here in Virginia this week, I stuck with the skillet. Enjoy!


4 Steaks (your choice of cut)
Salt and Pepper to taste
4T Butter
4T Gorgonzola
1T Fresh Parsley, chopped

Season both sides of each steak with salt and fresh ground pepper. Wrap each steak tightly in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for a few hours up to overnight. Remove from the refrigerator about 30 minutes prior to cooking in order for the steaks to reach room temperature before cooking.

Heat large, heavy cast iron skillet over medium heat. You can also use a side burner on a grill or an open flame with a grate if camping. To test if properly heated, sprinkle a drop of water into the bottom of the skillet. If it dances, the skillet is properly heated.

Drizzle olive oil into the bottom of the skillet and make sure it is well-coated.

Place each steak into the skillet and cook over the medium heat for two minutes. Flip and cook the other side of the steak for about two minutes. Test for doneness. Cook longer if needed to reach the level of doneness desired.

Remove from heat and allow to rest for about five minutes in the skillet.

For the Herbed Butter:

Cream together butter, Gorgonzola cheese, and fresh parsley.

Place one tablespoon of herbed butter onto the top of each steak and allow to melt over the sides as serving.
