I liked this more than my husband - which was weird because I'm not a huge polenta fan and he LOVES blue cheese. Not sure I'll make it again but I'm glad I tried it. Couldn't find the quick-cooking polenta so just made the regular polenta in a double-boiler.
Made menu to recipe except subbed very lean grass-fed ribeye for flank steak. Turned the steak over every 30 seconds, 8 minutes total. Really liked allspice on the beef & gorgonzola in the polenta. Served with the recommended broccolini and a green salad. Good weekend supper.Read More
The steak was delicious. Do not over cook. A friend bought the polenta in a tube which won't work with this recipe but we improvised. Cut into 3/4 inch rounds. Brushed with palm oil and grilled 2 min per side. Then put on broiler pan, topped with blue cheese, thyme & paprika mix and broiled. DeliciousRead More
This turned out great. I did 4 minutes on each side in my Le Crueset grill pan on medium high and was a little rare, for thick steaks like mine I might go 6 minutes for medium rare. The polenta was the star, it was lovely and creamy and blue cheesey as advertised. I just splashed some Worcestershire sauce on the steak it and it was good to go. Broccolini made a nice side - was able to cook all three dishes in under 20 minutes.
