My parents took a trip to Tuscany not too long ago (I know. I’m still jealous and it was months ago.), discount and the first thing my dad said to me when he got back was, “I had the most delicious thing ever! Gorgonzola polenta! You have to make it.” And I thought to myself “Duh. Why didn’t I think of that?”
So, last night I finally got around to it. And oh my, was it good! Warm, creamy and full of pungent Gorgonzola cheese, this was just about the best imaginable side for a steak. Mashed potatoes and creamed spinach can step aside – it’s Gorgonzola polenta that will cuddle up with my skirt steaks and rib eyes.
Next time, I think I’ll add some pickled red onions or shallots sauteed in butter to balance the creaminess of the polenta. But honestly, it’s amazing just the way it is.
