Winter is coming... back to comfort food!
One of my favourite dishes on our menu is the Bistecca Gorgonzola. It is a delicious red wine rose sauce with gorgonzola cheese, tossed with seared beef tenderloin tips, red and green peppers and fettuccine. Delicious comfort food when the leaves start falling off of the trees, the days get shorter and the weather gets colder! This is a pretty east dish to re create at home too! Trust me, if I can do it so can you!!
Put a little oil in your pan and get it really hot and then add your beef tenderloin tips, peppers and a dash of salt and pepper. Let everything brown and then deglaze with red wine . Let this cook down and add your marinara sauce, gorgonzola cheese and finish with cream. Let this reduce and toss with your favourite pasta. I love it with linguini, personally. A great pairing with our Pelee Island Gewurztraminer or our Chateau St. Michelle Riesling. When I'm in the mood I like to change it up a bit with chicken or pork loin instead of beef and I like to use a spicy marinara. Rich and creamy with a hint a sharpness from the blue cheese, you can't go wrong with this dish!
