Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola

Breana Lai

"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."

  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.

Fun and easy to make. The onions took longer than 15 minutes for me. The meat was just a bit rare for my preference. May have gotten pieces a bit thick? Did 5 minutes per side.

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 ...

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. ...

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 ...

delicious! I used Feta because I had some. Carmelized onions were easy to do and turned out very flavorful!

Best Tenderloin I've ever tasted. The caramelized onions and the cheese were a perfect sweet-sour complement to the filet Mignon. Do it on the medium/rare side. It was a triumph in my kitchen.
