if you like cheesy the sauce is for you! the 4 oz made it too cheesy for me. And it turns out my boyfriend isnt a fan of sauce on steak however, I will use the leftover sauce to make this meal for friends or add to mashed potatoes. Also, I marinated the steak in garlic and olive oil as some other reviewer recommended and it was really really delicious. bon apetit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummo! I had all the ingredients in my fridge since I'm doing low-carb. The gorgonzola cream sauce was TDF!! Mashed up some cauliflower with garlic, sour cream and velveeta, yep velveeta cheese product and it was awesome too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My all-time favorite recipe...family favorite...a WOW with guests! You can use the Gorganzola Cream Sauce with ANY steak. I always try to make extra sauce. If there is any left, put it in the fridge and it makes a beautiful creamy sandwich spread. Delicious! I've never written a review for any recipe before. I've been using this one for years now and it is still one of my favorite go-to recipes for any occasion! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a couple of t-bone steaks instead of the flank steak as that was what I had, but the gorgonzola sauce was FANTASTIC. I was only serving two, so there was more sauce than I needed, so I spread some on french bread & put it under the broiler till it was golden brown. Poured the rest of the sauce on top of the green beans. I'll be merorizing this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Another Neely-riffic recipe. I am heavy handed with spice when cooking and added finely minced garlic to salt and (a lot of pepper on the steak. The sauce was so very good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used top sirloin fillets instead of sliced flank steak, but I don't think it really matters what kind of meat you use after tasting the sauce. It is so delicious! My husband raved over the sauce. He asked if there was leftover sauce so he could pour it all over his mashed potatoes, too. He's such a picky eater, so when he went nuts over this gorgonzola sauce, I was happy. Great idea and very quick and easy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Beyond delicious!! And super easy to make. This is definitely going in my favorites list. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sounds absolutely wonderful, but I do not like the cheese, can you substitute the Gorgonzola cheese with something else?? Jan item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is OUTSTANDING!! The only modification I made was to marinate the flank steak (Bobby Flay recipe) in olive oil and 6 large cloves of garlic (minced). Sauce is incredible! I didn't see any need to salt or pepper the sauce since the flavor was perfect. Added a minimal amount of salt and pepper to the steak. Will definitely make this several times this summer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm dying to try this recipe this weekend for hubby and I. Sure looked good while they were making it on their show today!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved the steak, especially with the gorgonzola cream sauce! Next time, I won't be too liberal on salting the steak. This recipe was super easy to make and super delicious to eat! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Easiest and best gorgonzola sauce I've made. Served it with filet mignon at a dinner party on New Year's eve and my guests raved about it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was great! I did make some changes to the cheese sauce, it was a bit too strong for us, so I added brown sugar and had put paprika in to begin with and it ended up perfect! Served it with a mild garlic rice and asparagus w/ the bbq rub butter. We also marinade the meat and added a bit of cooked marinade into the cheese to bring it all together. It would be great if you have people over or even for a quick yet upscale meal for 2! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is sooo good better than going to any steak house, WOW the sauce is excellent, my husband loved it so did I. Goes great with roasted garlic mashed potates!! YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
DELICIOUS sauce!!! We made this with a strip steak and it was heavenly! We also topped some steamed broccoli with the extra sauce... I think anything topped with this sauce will be decadent and delicious! YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Skirt steak is my favorite cut of meat, did sub it for the flank steak. Added couple extra small steps too, but wow - what an incredibly easy and flavorful dish! Gorgonzola can be a bit overpowering, but I tend to love that about it...... As mentioned earlier, make sure and take the time to reduce the h.cream by 1/2 - makes a huge difference. I also added a bit more butter, few turns of coarse cracked black peppercorns, and chopped parsely in the sauce - turned out fantastic. Will be a regular in my rotation! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this Cream Sauce for my husband a few months ago and he LOVED it. Now everytime we have this kind of steak, we ALWAYS have to make the sauce. It also goes good with sauteed mushrooms too on the steak. We can't get enough of it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did not use the steak recipe, I used another one that was marinated. But the sauce was outstanding. It was perfect for the steak and also for the grilled asparagus I also served. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Knew the steak would be the easy part but was concerned about how the sauce would turn out. Can you say AWESOME?! We grilled asparagus with this and what a great meal! We even had left over sauce so bought some ww Italian rolls and made sandwiches the next day...and it was still good. So happy we've tried this and even took pictures of the dish we were so impressed :-) I will surely be making this for the family again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've used this on steak and chops and it's great. I've also used feta and blue cheese when the store was out of gorgonzola all were excellant with a little different flavor. This is a great dish for company and always get's wonderful reviews. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We had this as part of our Valentine's Day dinner. It was *really* good. Do make sure to stop cooking the meat at 6 minutes if you like it medium rare, though. I forgot about carry-over cooking, and the steak wound up being more well done than we like. Oh well, we'll remember for next time. The sauce was really good, too. It tasted like it would have gone well with beer or could have used some beer in it to round out the flavor. We will be making these again. And, in the meantime, we have enough sauce left over, that I think we'll follow another reviewer's suggestion and try it with chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was an incredibly easy and delicious dish. Made skirt steak instead of flank, and prepared it medium rare. The combination was flavorful and not overpowering. My wife, who is not a fan of gorgonzola, absolutely loved this dish, to her surprise. Another hit from the Neelys! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was so incredible and would be a great recipe to serve to guests since it is so fast and easy though I would recommend making the cream sauce a little early so the smell of it does not remain in the house. One of my all time favorite flank recipes. When I served it I just cut each person a 4 inch square of steak instead of slicing the whole thing up. The cream sauce is also yummy over asparagus. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I THOUGHT THIS RECIPE WAS VERY TASTY AND VERY EASY. A SIMPLE RECIPE THAT CAN MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE FOOD YOU SERVE YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY! ANYWAYS, DAVID, IF YOU LOATHE THE NEELYS THEN WHY DO YOU WATCH THE SHOW. WHERE YOU NEVER TAUGHT THAT IF YOU DON'T HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO SAY, DON'T SAY IT! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sauce was so simple, I was surprised and pleased with the great flavor. Dont save this for just steak.I tried it on grilled chicken breast with wild rice-yum ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so incredibly simple and so tasty. I added "Pappy's" rub on the flank steak and it brought a phenomenal flavor to the meat. The cheese sauce was wonderful and actually worked well on a few other dishes. Bravo!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added caramelized onions to this sauce, and used an immersion blender to blend them in. Reducing the cream made this a very thick, rich sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loathe the Neelys (mostly because they aren't genuinely proficient cooks, just props) but whoever devised this sauce almost nailed it; I added some fire-grilled poblanos and it fulfilled that 'it's missing something' factor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so simple and the sauce is wonderful! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sauce is wonderful on this steak, and equally tasty when served alongside the roasted garlic mashed potatoes made in the same episode. The whole meal was great - my teenager even ate it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to say right off that this sauce got mixed reviews tonight. About half of us liked it, the other half did not. Here was my husband's comment "I like this but please don't make it again. The smell makes me feel sick." And that's it in a nutshell. If you don't like gorgonzola or blue cheese or any strong cheese, don't make it. Or substitute something you do like. Because gorgonzola, even the one I bought that is kind of mild, is strong. And it does have an odor. But for those of us who like cheese, this is a pleasing odor. So, on to the meat. The cooking directions were dead on. If you are afraid of cooking flank steak, follow these directions carefully and you will be a convert. Flank steak has gotten a bad rap - by people who have no clue how to cook it. If it's overcooked, you might as well give it to the dog. But if you cook it a tad less than what you think is done, then let it sit for the required time, and then slice it very thinly, it's wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The flank steak was juicy and the sauce was different but good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have a very picky husband so of course when I was amking the sauce he complained about the smell. But honey when it went to his lips he looked at me in disbelife and said WOW this has so much flavor as he's now dipping his vegatbles in it. This sauce is very flavorful with a nice rich smooth texture. I highly recommend this sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was in Europe last year and every steak I ate had some sort of sauce on it. I LOVED IT! But when I got home and wanted to replicate what I had eaten, I couldn't find a decent recipe until now. I have never been a fan of bleu cheese, but this recipe made me a true believer. Thank you, Neelys, and keep up the good work! P.S. I was in Nashville last month and couldn't visit your restaurant. Could you come to New Hampshire and show us Yanks how really great food tastes? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wasn't a big fan of flank steak but I am now! This was delicious, easy and the cream sauce is to die for! I used Ina's recipe for roasted asparagus as a side dish. Definitely a 5 star meal! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have made this Gargonzola Cream Sauce twice. Once for my boyfriend and the other for dinner guests the very next night. It was such a HUGE hit!! Great on flavor and super easy to make (it also made me look like I knew what I was doing in the kitchen!!) lol Luckily I read the reviews before I made the sauce which helped me alot. I did cook the cream down to a little more than half before I added the Gargonzola which made for a creamier sauce. This recipe is one of my favorites! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This sauce is incredible. I made it for my husband to put over the flank steak and found myself picking at it and finding other uses for it. The flavor is amazing and it's so easy to make. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the entree for my mothers day dinner and it was very tasty. The tangyness of the gorgonzola with the flavor of the flank steak work well together. I will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The Neelys are turning this CT yankee into a southern girl with collard greens, mustard greens, cornbread muffins with honey, etc. The gorgonzola sauce on the steak was yum! I did scorch the pan while watching Red Sox, but just poured the sauce out, and it was fine. Love the show! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Nice to know that such an inexpensive cut of meat can be so delicious and quick, if you cook it right! The cheese sauce was great, although I put it in a dipping dish on the side, so each person could choose how much they wanted with each bite. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have tried to find a recipe that uses a blue cheese crumble or sauce for steaks as that is a favorie of my husbands when we eat out. This was very easy and was as good if not better than any steak I have had with blue cheese. I used it for a couple different cuts of steak. I will make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was so good! my husband and i both loved it very much. so easy and tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sauce for this recipe is awesome. There are a couple of things to remember that make this turn out perfect...the heavy cream mixture must be reduced to half, that's what gives it the thickness (perhaps the other reviewer didn't do this). It takes about 30-45 minutes, so be patient. Next its a 1/4 lb. of the gorgonzola cheese, not 1/4 cup - that's what will give it the great flavor. My husband raved about this sauce - its just as good if not better than a fine dining restaurant. Left overs warmed are just as great. Thanks Neeleys for your recipe!!! Keep them coming!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband grilled the steak over charcoals medium/medium well and it was real tender. Gave it 4 stars because I felt the cheese sauce needed to be a little thicker. The sauce was more like a gravy instead of cheese sauce. Maybe it needed a little flour mixed in or I might not have reduced the cream down to half like the recipe stated. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The sauce wasn't bad, it was ok - average. There was just nothing really interesting about it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I tried this, and although the cut of meat is not that great, the sauce made the difference. My husband a very picky eater said "I could use that sauce on any cut of meat." Also, the garlic in the potatoes in the meal were great, thanks Nealys. I will try you again and watch you for more great tips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
