directions

To make beef:

  • 1

    Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

  • 2

    Place the beef on a baking sheet and pat the outside dry with a paper towel. Spread butter on with your hands. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Roast in oven for exactly 22 minutes for rare and 25 minutes for medium rare.

  • 3

    Remove beef from oven, cover tightly with aluminum foil and allow it to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes. Remove strings and slice thickly.

To make sauce:

  • 1

    Bring heavy cream to a full boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, then continue to boil rapidly for 40 -50 minutes until it’s thickened, stirring occasionally.

  • 2

    Remove pan from heat and add Gorgonzola, Parmesan, salt, pepper and parsley. If you must reheat, warm sauce over low heat until melted, then whisk vigorously until sauce comes together.
