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!

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 ha...

Wow,this was delicious. I am not a blue cheese fan so I used parmesan as suggested by another reviewer and my husband and I both could not eat enough.

Absolutely wonderful! I love this butter! We made 4 servings of butter & only two steaks so I'm having the leftovers for lunch today on egg noodles...should be good!I made no changes to the reci...
