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.
