I only made the sauce from this recipe and it is wonderful. We had 10 people for dinner with a Tenderloin and everyone asked me for the recipe. I made this dish the night before and to warm it I placed it over a pan of water and heated. I did use more Gorgonzola cheese than the recipe calls for. Cut back on quantities because it's so rich people only take a little bit.
I let this simmer for about an hour and 15 minutes. it did only reduce by about a third. In my opinion it could have used a lot more gorgonzola as i found this to be quite bland. i don't know if it is because i did not add the nutmeg ( i cant stand nutmeg) or what, but nothing I need to rush to make again.
I think this is sinfully good. To the negative reviews on the calories... HELLO!! It doesn't take a genius to see it's a rich recipe but to rate it poorly for that reason is nonsense. Thanks for a great recipe! :)
I made this with less parmesan cheese (simply b/c of preference) and half and half instead of heavy cream to reduce the richness but added cayenne pepper to give the sauce a kick. In addition I sliced the tenderloin into small half dollar size pieces and plated them along with potato pancakes. Everyone had a second helping
Rich and delicious! Definitely not for those counting calories! I made this for two filets so I cut back on the sauce. This is one of those sauces that you have to do to your tastes. I used one cup of light cream and brought it to a boil and let it reduce a bit. I used two to three ounces of gorgonzola cheese and about three tsp. of parmesan cheese. I added salt, pepper, nutmeg, and a bit of cayenne. I added the crumbled bacon right to the sauce. I seasoned the filets as we usually do for grilling. Once they came off I poured a bit of the sauce over top then topped them off with sliced green onion. Perfect with grilled baked potaotes and a garden salad!
I made this for Christmas and it was a BIG success! The only thing I would do different is cook the sauce first and let it cool and then spread onto the steak when they are done. I had no left overs just them wanting more! Thank you very much for sharing.
I use cream of mushroom soup with skim milk whisked in to make up volume instead of cream here. I also add some sliced mushrooms near the end of cooking, and increase the Gorgonzola a bit (okay and I add a bit of garlic... I love my garlic!). Make sure to use a nice, high quality cheese. I tried it once with an amazing goat Gorgonzola, and another time with a cheaper pre-crumbled variety. You can definitely taste the difference and I think I'd have to double the cheaper one to get the same flavour out of it.
Great sauce recipe. I added sun dried tomatoes and black olives to it.
