Gorgonzola-Topped Tenderloin Steaks can be prepared in 20 minutes using five main ingredients.

The garlic and pepper crusted tenderloin steaks are pan-broiled and served with a sauce of beef broth and red wine, with Gorgonzola cheese, or other blue-veined cheese, crumbled over the top.

Fresh sauteed spinach would work well as a side dish.

The recipe is from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. More beef ideas are available from the group at
