1 tablespoon salted butter, plus 1 stick slightly softened

1 shallot, minced

1 cup heavy cream

1/4 pound gorgonzola cheese, crumbled

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 1/2 pounds flank steak

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon sugar

1/4 cup paprika

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

2 pounds large asparagus, trimmed


  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook until tender, about 1 minute. Add the heavy cream and simmer until reduced by half. Whisk in the gorgonzola until it melts. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  2. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush the steak lightly with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the steak, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, turning once. Remove from the heat and cover with foil. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the sugar, paprika and onion powder in a small bowl. Reserve 4 teaspoons and store the rest in an airtight container. (Seasoning will keep in the pantry for up to 6 months.) Mix the stick of softened butter with 3 teaspoons of the seasoning in a small bowl; cover and refrigerate.
  4. Toss the asparagus with the remaining 1 teaspoon barbecue seasoning mix and 1 tablespoon olive oil; add salt and pepper to taste. Cook the asparagus in a grill pan over medium heat until tender, turning once, about 6 minutes total. Reserve 4 stalks for another use.
  5. Reserve a quarter of the steak for another use; cut the rest into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Top with the gorgonzola cream sauce, reserving about 1/2 cup for another use, and serve with the asparagus and some barbecue butter.
