Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola

Recipe by  

"Beef tenderloin is naturally lean and mild-flavored, so it's great paired with the intense flavors of sweet caramelized onions and salty Gorgonzola cheese."

Original recipe makes 4 steaks Change Servings

    30 mins


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and cook, stirring often, until the onions are very tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Add broth, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the liquid has almost evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer the onions to a bowl; cover to keep warm. Clean and dry the pan.
  2. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper on both sides of each steak. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn them over and top with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the steaks are cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. Serve the steaks with the caramelized onions.

The steak was fine (hard to mess that up) but the carmelized onions were awful. This version was a never repeat for us.

Used my extra caramelized onions on a salad the next day, delicious!

Will make this again. The steak had great flavor. I did not have blue cheese (because I do not care for it) but used feta instead. It was great. The onions were very tasty and I made enough to put on burgers.

I was looking for a recipe for caramelized onions to put on burgers, and this looked good, so I tried it. I made ONLY the onions, not the steak part. The onions were quick, easy, and delicious. The leftovers are still wonderful warmed up the next day. And these onions make for some killer burgers. I followed the recipe exactly, no changes.

This recipe was super easy and looked like something coming out of a restaurant! My husband was very impressed with my caramelized onions too!

Awesome. Made for my husband's Valentines Day dinner. We don't even care for Gorgonzola cheese but the combination was delicious!

Had a large piece of tenderloin so cut off some steaks and followed the recipe exactly (well, I just can't caramelize onions without butter, so I added some of that...). It was wonderful! Got a thumbs up from my husband, who found it restaurant worthy. I noticed the leftovers disappeared this morning... so definitely a keeper! This was very easy to make, and I think the balsamic and beef broth could be substituted with red wine, I will probably try that next time. Went perfectly with a caesar salad.
