How To Cook: Steak Crostini with Gorgonzola Butter

by How To Mommy on 12.19.11

We had our one and only holiday party last week, so I wanted to make sure my contribution was fancy and delicious.

I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something about a holiday party where you feel the need to step it up a notch or two from the regular stuff you normally bring!

Our hostess suggested we all bring “heavy appetizers.”

Immediately, I had though stuffed mushrooms sounded  good, so I found an AMAZING recipe from the Pioneer Woman.

Of course, they were delicious.  You can get the recipe here.  I followed it almost verbatim.

For my second dish I took a suggestion from a friend, read few recipes, and came up with something more delicious than I could’ve hoped!

Steak Crostini with Gorgonzola Butter

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. flat iron steak
  • 1/2 c. steakhouse marinade
  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 c. gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
  • 1 baugette

Preparation: 

  1. Marinade the steak for 30 minutes or longer {I let it marinade for about 4 hours}
  2. Broil or grill the steak to medium rare {you’ll cook it again, so you want to make sure it’s still really pink so you don’t end up over cooking it}
  3. Thinly slice steak into 1 or 2 inch strips
  4. Using an electric mixer, combine butter and gorgonzola cheese
  5. Slice baugette into 3/4 to 1 inch thick slices and place in the oven {350°} for about 5 minutes until it’s slightly golden
  6. Spread the gorgonzola butter generously onto each slice of bread
  7. Top each crostini with two to three slices of steak
  8. Place under the broiler for 3 to 5 minutes until meat is cooked and butter has melted

This was heaven in my mouth.  I ate entirely too many of these….

What are your favorite “heavy” appetizers?
