Gorgonzola Steak Bites

Last weekend we went to a wedding that was the most beautiful, joyous celebration of love. This also happened to be my soul sister’s wedding, on my birthday, to a truly wonderful man – so it really couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Their homemade cake, the gorgeous succulent-flower arrangements, literally the entire crowd losing it during the ceremony…

Let’s just talk about the food before I start ugly-crying again.

loved the setup for their reception – half sit-down tables, half standing cocktail tables, plus a few comfy couches around the edges. Cocktail tables let us wander around and catch up with dozens of friends, plus it was perfect for snagging dinner bites. The meal was served as appetizer after appetizer, filling up tables around the room as well as carried through the crowds, and everything was a major hit.

I filled a plate with these gorgonzola steak bites in mini phyllo tarts and went back for more, so of course I needed to recreate them right away this week. They’re so simple that they’ll definitely make an appearance at our next dinner party – or more likely, be the excuse to throw a dinner party. They’re super-filling as an appetizer thanks to big bites of steak and the rich cream sauce, so you could pair them with a hearty salad for lunch as well!

I cooked the top round steak using my Anova sous vide, 140°F/60°F for 8 hours, but you can precook or grill your cut of steak any way you prefer. I chose to cook these past my favorite red medium-rare to make them more of a crowd-pleaser. Once your steak is cooked, everything can be assembled, cooked, and finished in less than 10 minutes!
