Olive Garden Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo

The Olive Garden Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo is a recipe that so many of you have requested that I would do, so I knew this had to be a delicious recipe to try to recreate.

If you love steak and alfredo sauce, this may be the perfect last meal for you. This method includes a perfectly seared steak served with the famous Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce. This recipe also includes a touch of fresh spinach and just a hint of rich gorgonzola cheese that you will love.

When I first tried this in the Olive Garden, I was blown away with the complexity of the dish. And we are adding just a couple of extra ingredients to make this dish taste amazing.

Gorgonzola is a type of blue cheese. It is stronger than your everyday blue cheese. So you can use blue cheese with this recipe if you desire. Gorgonzola cheese can be found in most grocery stores. If you cannot find gorgonzola, you can use blue cheese.

One of the things I like most about recreating a recipe at home is I get to make choices when I cook. For the steak, I used a ribeye cut when I prepared this delightful dish. I cooked my steak as a whole, then cut it into large pieces and placed it on the pasta.

The Olive Garden cuts their steak first and then cooks it. I like my steak rarer so by cooking the steak as a whole; I feel I can get more of a rare portion of the steak. You can cook the steak as you desire, and best of all you can use the cut of steak you like the most.

I used fresh spinach in this dish. I simply rinsed and tossed it into the pasta raw. The residual heat of the pasta and Alfredo sauce does the cooking.

After I placed the steak pieces onto my pasta with the sauce, I added some gorgonzola and placed it under the broiler in my oven. I heated this just until the gorgonzola cheese began to melt and brown.

I hope you enjoy this classic Olive Garden dish at home. I also have many other copycat Olive Garden recipes for favorites that you won’t want to miss.

    Absolutely delish! Was so upset when they took this away! It was all I ever ordered. Tastes just like the original. I make this for my family and the kids just have the pasta since they don’t like steak and I don’t have to make any other adjustments at all! Thanks so much for this!

    THANK YOU!!! This is by far this easiest recipe I’ve ever found and attempted.
    I cheated and used fajita strips already made (frozen). I added them to the sauce to along with my spinach, cheese (Italian style blue cheese, room me forever to figure that one out) and sun dried tomatoes while it was simmering. I live an hour away from the closest OG. Know that o know how to make this, I don’t have to pout every time I see the commercial.

    This turned out great! And to John, most grocery stores in the pasta/international aisle have “glaze”. It’s balsamic reduction all ready to go – no need to spend hours reducing it yourself or having your kitchen stink for a week.

      If you think it stinks, why would you make it? I love how my house smells after making an aromatic meal, even a day or two later … It smells like love to me… 🙂

    If I ever serve this recipe when there’s adults and kids around at the same time if I make a (mistake) and accidentally contaminate this recipe and the kids don’t make a big deal of it and the adults do I will scream at the adults like Sigourney Weaver on Aliens and Galaxy Quest.

    Looks great, this is my favorite dish at olive garden. But you forgot one key ingredient. They make a balsamic reduction and drizzle it over the top of the dish as well.

    That looks great! I love it when you can make a recipe and have it taste just as good as what is made in the restaurant and not have to pay their price for it. Plus, the hassle of having to drive to the restaurant is sometimes really not worth it. If I can have it at home, then that’s better for me!

    I will be honest with you, I don’t eat out often, so I am not familiar with this dish. I will say that it looks delicious and I think my family would love it. Such a great combination.

  8. Heather Lawrence

    This is my hubby’s “go to dish” when we go to the Olive Garden.
    He is never disappointed when he orders this one! Love that I will be able to make him this dish at home now. He is going to be so excited!
