Steak Gorgonzola ...aka Steak gorgon yummo!

Here in fly-over country we are steak and potato kinda people, a celebration calls for a big, juicy steak.  My hubby didn't grow up in the hills of WV like me, he grew up near Annapolis, MD and the Chesapeake Bay.  That is crab and crab cake country, nothing would make him happier than a bushel of steamed crabs, Old Bay and a few hours to enjoy eating them.  The other night, after our day with nature, we had a little celebratory dinner for the hubster because he started a new job at a big, fancy schmancy hotel.  Since you can't find good crabs in WV and they are WAY too pricey to order online he had to settle for a steak and potato kinda night instead of his preferred dining choice of crab.

Since we had to settle for steak, by the way I don't like hate crab, it is far too much work and way too gross for such little food.  I decided since he had to settle for steak I'd make it fancy, schmancy steak.  What, you've never eaten fancy schmancy steak?  You don't know what you are missing! It is super easy to make too, you start with your favorite steak and season it as normal then grill it up just the way you like.

Now, here is the fancy part. Take a tablespoon or two of butter and soften it in the microwave for about 6 seconds.  You could do 5, but I think that extra second makes a difference.  Next, add in some gorgonzola cheese and stir it up, you find gorgonzola cheese in the deli section in a tub usually beside feta cheese.  Now, add that to the top of your favorite steak.  Take a minute to let it soak in and begin enjoying it's yummy goodness.

Warning: DO NOT LICK YOUR SCREEN. But, doesn't that look yummy? Trust me, it was! We served it up with a simple salad, twice baked potatoes and roasted asparagus.
