- Prep time: 10 minutes
- Cook time: 10 minutes
- Servings: 10
- 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature, divided butter
- 4 large thinly sliced Vidalia onions
- 3 tablespoons crumbled Gorgonzola
- 4 (8 oz) beef fillets
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Spray grill with nonstick nonflammable cooking spray.
In a large saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat. Add onions, and cook, stirring frequently, for 20 minutes, or until onions are caramelized. Remove from heat, and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine 1 stick of butter and Gorgonzola; cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.
Sprinkle fillets evenly with salt and pepper. Grill fillets, covered with grill lid, for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until desired degree of doneness. *Cook’s Note: For a rare doneness, cook steaks on each side for 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to serving plates and let sit for 5 minutes. Serve fillets with caramelized onions and Gorgonzola butter.
