Filet mignon with Gorgonzola sauce is a very simple and delicious meal for two. A good sear on your steak will ensure a juicy, tender steak. I have found this to be the best way to cook a steak indoors.

Ingredient Checklist
Gorgonzola Sauce:


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). Place a large, oven-proof skillet in the oven as it preheats.

  • Bring steaks to room temperature. Rub with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.

  • Remove the hot skillet from the oven carefully and place it on a burner set to high heat. Leave the oven on.

  • Place steaks into the dry pan immediately and sear, turning with tongs, 1 to 2 minutes on both sides.

  • Transfer the pan back into the preheated oven and cook until desired doneness is reached, 3 to 5 minutes. For medium doneness, an instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Transfer steaks to a warm platter and tent loosely with foil. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes; the steaks will continue to cook during this process and the internal temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees.

  • Meanwhile, heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic and saute until shallot is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour in cream; let cook until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Turn heat to low and add Gorgonzola cheese. Let cheese melt; season with salt and pepper. Serve sauce with steaks.
