Great recipe. I made the butter mixture in a mortar & pestle rather than the processor. Also, I used parmesan cheese instead of the gorgonzola. The flavours really worked well together.

I think I would have been happier with just a gorgonzola butter, or just a garlic butter.... there was too much going on in this recipe.

A very tasty dish. The spicy gorgonzola butter is delicious, it melts to the meat if you add it right away after taking the meat off the grill and the way the flavors blend is marvelous!

This was really good and really easy to make. I didn't have gorgonzola so I used Maytag blue cheese instead and it came out great!

Great recipe. The butter has lots of flavor. I made a good amount of butter and also used it on veal chops and pork loin chops and both of those dishes came out very good as well.

Very good! My fiance didn't even want to try this because he didn't think it sounded good. Well, he was very pleasantly surprised! This recipe is a keeper. I only used one clove of garlic because I'm not a garlic lover, but it was still really good.

The butter spread was delicious!!! This recipe was easy to make and brought out wonderful flavors in the beef. I am a *real* novice in the kitchen and this dish made me look like a pro!!!

INCREDIBLE!!! I can only imagine how good it would taste if I had enough fresh herbs on hand. I only had 1 TBS of fresh thyme, and had to use 2 tsp dried. I had all the fresh rosemary, but had to use all dried parsley. I was a little heavy on the garlic, but followed the recipe otherwise. SOO GOOD!! I'm sick right now because I put tons of butter on my fillet mignon... :)
