Gorgonzola Steak

Gorgonzola Steak

This is a healthy version of a extremly fatty dish sometimes called a "Black and Blue" steak.  Gorgonzola cheese (in the blue cheese family) is a good source of protein, which is the building block for strong muscle.  While cheese isn't known for being low fat, the strong flavor of this cheese helps you to eat less while feeling satisfied.  Gorgozola is also full of calcium and potassium. One ounce of gorgonzola has 6 g of protein, 150 mg of calcium, and 73 mg of potassium. []

4 oz of sirloin steak (I used Laura's Lean Beef Sirloin Steaks)
1 tsp olive oil
1 oz gorgonzola cheese
1 tsp all purpose salt-free seasoning (I used McCormick's)
black pepper
fresh sage
canola cooking spray (like PAM, etc)

Let meat rest for about 15 minutes prior to staring dinner. Season steak with all purpose salt-free seasoning and pepper. Let a large skillet heat up over high heat. When hot, add olive oil and place steak in pan with tongs.

Sear each side for 2 minutes to caramelize. Reduce heat to moderate. Cook additional couple minutes per side, depending how rare/well done you like it.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Lightly spray with canola cooking spray.

Preheat broiler. Arrange steak on baking sheet. Top steak with 1 oz gorgonzola.  Broil just long enough to melt the cheese. Let the meat rest 2-3 minutes before serving.

Serves 1.  Feeding more? You can easily double, etc this recipe!
