Grilled Ribeye with Gorgonzola Sauce

I don't have a picture of this succulent dish because I sent someone who shall remain nameless to the store to pick up some ribeye steaks and he came back with round eye steaks.  We made do, but I'm going to let you use your imagination to picture how delicious this recipe is. 

This recipe is from the Common Grill Cookbook.

4 10 oz. ribeye steaks
Ribeye marinade
Gorgonzola Sauce
4 T Gorgonzola cheese, grated
4 fresh herb sprigs, such as rosemary or thyme

Marinate steaks in ribeye marinade for 4 hours in refrigerator. 

Grill steak to personal taste.  Ladle Gorgonzola Sauce over steaks and sprinkle with grated Gorgonzola cheese.  Garnish with fresh herb sprigs.

Ribeye Marinade
1 cup olive oil
2 T dry mustard
1 T Worchestershire sauce
1 t garlice, minced
1 t soy sauce
1 t lemon juice
1/8 t hot sauce
1/4 t kosher salt
1/8 t cracked black pepper

Combine all ingredients; mix well.

Gorgonzola Sauce
1/4 c butter for sauteing onion
1/4 c butter cut into pieces and chilled
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 c Madeira sherry 
3 c beef stock
1 c gorgonzola cheese, crumbled 

Melt 1/4 cup butter in saute pan.  Add onion and saute until brown.  Add Madeira, bring to a boil and continue cooking until liquid is reduced by half, approximately 15 to 20 minutes.  

Add beef stock; return to a boil and continue cooking until liquid is reduced by half again. 

Slowly add chilled butter pieces, whisking to dissolve. 

Add cheese and mix well.  Remove from heat.

Ok so I made the marinade tonight (minus the sauce, unfortunately, b/c Jon simply would not abide gorgonzola). But anyway, we LOVED it. Triple loved it. You're the wind beneath our steak-loving wings.
