Recipe: Strip Steaks with Gorgonzola, Herb, and Pine Nut Butter

We had the most scrumptious dinner tonight!  I was poking around http://www.allrecipes.com the other day, looking for some low-carb recipes when I came across this one for Tenderloin with Spicy Gorgonzola-Pine-Nut-Herb Butter.  Well, if you’ve looked at the price of meat lately you’ll know that trying to get beef tenderloin for 3 people isn’t exactly cheap.  So, not knowing whether we’d like this and not being much of a meat connoisseur, we opted to make this recipe with some slight modifications – and strip steak.

I also goofed and made 8 servings of the butter, so we plan to give it a try on some burgers this weekend.

The recipe should be pretty South Beach Diet-friendly, but should be eaten in moderation due to the high fat content in the butter.  I think in the future I might also try this with Smart Balance and cut down the fat.  If you’ve tried it before, please let me know how it is!

Check out the original recipe for more information – we did make a couple of modifications just for our own taste preferences (cut down on the rosemary and garlic).  That’s why I renamed it Gorgonzola, Herb and Pine Nut butter…because I think the Gorgonzola and herbs are the main focus.  Makes 8, 2 Tbsp. servings.


1 stick butter (softened)
1/2 c. crumbled Gorgonzola
3 T fresh thyme (minced)
1 1/2 T fresh rosemary (minced)
2 T fresh Italian parsley (minced)
1 t crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 garlic cloves (sliced)
scant 1/4 c. pine nuts

Combine everything into a food processor and mix well.  Put a 2 Tbsp. dollop on a steak fresh off the grill – it melts nicely if put on immediately after the steaks come off the grill.  I also took some of the 2 Tbsp. off the steak (it really is a lot) and put it on some hot, steamed green beans.  YUM!
