Steak Gorgonzola with Creamy Alfredo Sauce

When I made this Olive Garden Steak Gorgonzola and tasted it for the first time, I was transported to Italy. Just kidding, but I was transported to having it at Olive Garden. It's just as good, if not better than the restaurant version

Ingredients
  

  • 1 10 oz. filet mignon steak
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, roughly chopped
  • 2 oz. gorgonzola cheese crumbled
  • 8 oz. fettuccine or linguine noodles cooked according to packaging instructions

Sauce

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup freshly shredded parmesan cheese
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 cups fresh spinach

Balsamic Reduction

  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar

Instructions
 

Steak

  • Begin by cutting your filet mignon into smaller pieces (each piece will equal about 3-4 bites, for reference).
  • Take each piece and gently flatten with the palm of your hand.
  • Season with salt and pepper, and a little olive oil.
  • Place into a hot skillet, and sear each side. Cook until they reach your desired doneness. I like medium rare.
  • Once they are done cooking, put on a plate and set to the side.

Balsamic Reduction

  • Add balsamic vinegar and brown sugar to a small sauce pan. Cook on medium high heat until sugar melts.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes until sauce begins to thicken.
  • Turn heat off, and set to the side. Sauce will continue to thicken as it cools.

Alfredo Sauce

  • In a separate pot, cook pasta according to packaging instructions.
  • In a deep skillet, begin to make your sauce. Melt butter and add heavy cream, whisking them together.
  • Add freshly grated Parmesan cheese and stir to combine. Add garlic powder.
  • Cook down for a few minutes, until the sauce begins to thicken.
  • Add cooked pasta to the sauce skillet and stir to coat.
  • Once the sauce has reached your desired consistency, turn down heat and add fresh spinach.
  • Place a portion of pasta down, and top with steak, a drizzle of the balsamic, crumbled gorgonzola, and chopped sun dried tomatoes.
