A very tasty dish. The spicy gorgonzola butter is delicious it melts to the meat if you add it right away after taking the meat off the grill and the way the flavors blend is marvelous!

I think I would have been happier with just a gorgonzola butter or just a garlic butter.... there was too much going on in this recipe.

Great recipe. I made the butter mixture in a mortar & pestle rather than the processor. Also I used parmesan cheese instead of the gorgonzola. The flavours really worked well together.

This was really good and really easy to make. I didn't have gorgonzola so I used Maytag blue cheese instead and it came out great!

Great recipe. The butter has lots of flavor. I made a good amount of butter and also used it on veal chops and pork loin chops and both of those dishes came out very good as well.

Very good! My fiance didn't even want to try this because he didn't think it sounded good. Well he was very pleasantly surprised! This recipe is a keeper. I only used one clove of garlic because I'm not a garlic lover but it was still really good.

The butter spread was delicious!!! This recipe was easy to make and brought out wonderful flavors in the beef. I am a real novice in the kitchen and this dish made me look like a pro!!!

Wow this was delicious. I am not a blue cheese fan so I used parmesan as suggested by another reviewer and my husband and I both could not eat enough.

INCREDIBLE!!! I can only imagine how good it would taste if I had enough fresh herbs on hand. I only had 1 TBS of fresh thyme and had to use 2 tsp dried. I had all the fresh rosemary but had to use all dried parsley. I was a little heavy on the garlic but followed the recipe otherwise. SOO GOOD!! I'm sick right now because I put tons of butter on my fillet mignon...:)

Absolutely wonderful! I love this butter! We made 4 servings of butter & only two steaks so I'm having the leftovers for lunch today on egg noodles...should be good!I made no changes to the recipe except to use a bit of hubby's roasted pepper hot sauce instead of the crushed red pepper & I coated the steaks w/ just tad bit of EVOO before sprinkling them w/ Paula Deen's house seasoning (salt pepper garlic powder). Started the meal off w/ a glass of Sauvignon Blanc pesto bruschetta Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto (from allrecipes) then this fabulous steak recipe & a huge salad w/ Sweet Cherry Soup & Butterball cookies (both are recipes I got from a friend at my cooking forum...Cooking Friends) for dessert. Loved every bite....thanks Ryan Nomura!
