Once a year on Kayla’s birthday she always asks for two things. Steak gorgonzola alfredo and mozzarella fonduta from Olive Garden.
A while back I discovered that Olive Garden had some of their recipes on their website. We know how expensive eating out can be, even though Olive Garden offers very generous portions, it’s still, for a family of four, kind of pricey.
This recipe features chunks of steak in a creamy gorgonzola sauce with fresh spinach, topped with a balsamic glaze that is out of this world delicious!
You can’t go wrong when preparing this and it makes so much! The four of us easily eat it, with plenty of leftovers.
Ingredients in Steak Gorgonzola Alferdo:
- sirloin steak
- Gorgonzola cheese
- Balsamic glaze you can buy this, or make your own
- Italian dressing
- chopped rosemary
- lemon juice
- chopped spinach
- Alfredo Sauce
Where’s the tomato?
Well, Kelsie has an allergy to tomatoes, so we omit this ingredient. However, you can purchase the jar of sundried tomatoes, and place 1/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes right at the end, before you plate up.
To make balsamic glaze:
Place your balsamic vinegar in a small pot and heat to boiling. Once it reaches boiling, reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes or so. Your looking for a slightly thickened texture.
Or you can buy your own now! It tastes just the same, and it won’t stink up your kitchen. 🙂 Just look for balsamic glaze with other condiments.
How do you make Olive Garden’s Alfredo Sauce?
So, if you aren’t keen on buying a jar of alfredo sauce, you can make your own, really easy. Although this isn’t their exact recipe, it tastes oh-so-close!
You’ll need, 3 tablespoons butter, 2 cups heavy whipping cream, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 tablespoon minced garlic, and 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Sautee the garlic until fragrant. Whisk in the flour. Add the heavy cream and grated cheese and whisk until the sauce thickens. Salt and pepper to taste.
Can I use milk instead of cream for Alfredo Sauce?
You can. Just substitute cup for cup. Please note that it won’t be as heavy as an alfredo sauce with heavy whipping cream.
Can I use another cheese?
I’ve used blue cheese in place of the gorgonzola several times, and it’s just as yummy!
