    Great recipe. I made the butter mixture in a mortar & pestle rather than the processor. Also, I used parmesan cheese instead of the gorgonzola. The flavours really worked well together.  -  17 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A very tasty dish. The spicy gorgonzola butter is delicious, it melts to the meat if you add it right away after taking the meat off the grill and the way the flavors blend is marvelous!  -  15 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really good and really easy to make. I didn't have gorgonzola so I used Maytag blue cheese instead and it came out great!  -  16 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
