A simple yet flavorful way to prepare the perfect filet mignon. The gorgonzola adds a salty bite to the steak, resulting in the perfect combination of flavors. Serve with a side of mashed or twice baked potatoes.  

What You'll Need

  • 2 filet mignon, about 1 1/2 inches thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 mL) black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon (1.25 mL) garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) olive oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) crumbled gorgonzola cheese

How to Make It

1. Preheat grill for high heat. Combine salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Brush steaks with olive oil and season both side of steak with seasoning rub.

2. Place on the grill grate and cook for 5 minutes per side, or to the desired doneness. Once cooked to your liking, remove from grill and immediately top with 2 tablespoons (30 mL) of crumbled gorgonzola cheese per steak. The heat from the cooked steak with allow the cheese to become soft and slightly melted.

Plate steaks and serve with your favorite sides.
