I love alfredo, but it is so incredibly rich and heavy that it is very difficult to eat a lot of it (although there are times that it seems so easy). After I had the Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo at Olive Garden, I knew I had to make my own copycat version.
My standard alfredo sauce is pretty amazing, if I may say so myself. I had a hard time finding an alfredo recipe that was “worth it” and finally, I figured it out! So I took the base of my alfredo sauce and turned it into my version of a Copycat Olive Garden Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo. You can check out my regular alfredo sauce soon, I am working on getting it posted and I personally think it is better than Olive Garden, so you will have to check it out!
Cheese is definitely the star here, so ideally you want to get good quality cheese, especially the Parmesan. None of that ground, canned stuff!!! I love to buy wedges of Parmesan Reggiano cheese and use (affiliate) one of my favorite tools, a food processor, to shred the brick and then I keep it in my refrigerator in plastic bags so that I always have fresh, quality cheese shredded on hand. If you make healthier and higher-quality foods easier to access, you will use them more often.
What makes this dish so amazing is truly the balsamic. The acidity cuts through all of the richness, plus balsamic is just amazing in general. On everything. So good.
And yes, this dish is quite rich, being made from cream and all. But I find that because it is heavy, I eat a lot less of it so it is not all that bad, right??!? Plus, the tomatoes, spinach, and steak make it stretch pretty far as well.
I also love to use this quick and easy balsamic glaze on top to help cut through the richness of the sauce. My husband is so in love with this balsamic glaze, he will not eat this any other way now! I hope you enjoy this Copycat Olive Garden Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo!
