Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo + Weekly Dinner Menu.

I apologize in advance if you are reading this before lunchtime because your stomach is going to be growling  and your mouth is going to be watering after you see this recipe. 

I posted this photo below of our dinner last Friday night on Instagram and Facebook and got 435043854 requests for the recipe, so here it is! It was AMAZING and I cannot wait to make (and taste) it again. 

1lb fettuccine
1 1/2lb steak (cut in to medallions)
8oz spinach (I ran out of time and forgot to add)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 clove garlic (I used about a tsp of garlic powder)
1/2 cup gorgonzola
1/4 cup parmesan, shredded
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
I will also add mushrooms next time

In a small saucepan combine balsamic and brown sugar over med-high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Stirring frequently. Once it coats the back of a spoon, remove from heat. Set aside.

In a small saucepan melt butter with the garlic clove over low heat. Once melted remove the garlic. Turn heat to medium; add heavy cream. Whisk constantly until it starts to thicken; add gorgonzola and parmesan. Make sure all the cheese is melted, remove from heat.

Meanwhile cook your pasta according to package directions.

Preheat grill or grill pan. Salt and pepper steak medallions. Add to grill, cook for about 7 minutes, this is for a medium. Cook to your liking.

Heat a large skillet over med-low heat, add just a dash of olive oil. Throw in the spinach, wilt down. Reduce heat, add drained pasta and gorgonzola-alfredo sauce. Stir to combine.

To plate; place fettuccine mixture in a pasta bowl, top with a few steak medallions, drizzle with balsamic glaze.
