Say hello to your new favourite flatbread recipe, and it's SO perfect for summer entertaining!
You know, on those gorgeous sunny days where it's just too beautiful out to spend too much time in the kitchen? Well, I'll help you whip together a delicious dinner in a flash, and I've got a super fun contest to help get you even more motivated to experiment with new flavours this season so keep reading for your chance to WIN a PC Black Label black box full of fun surprise PC Black Label products (it includes a $50 PC gift card too!)
But in the meantime, let's savour what is this Easy Steak Gorgonzola Flatbread, with pretty much all my favourite veggies and the delicious soft blue-veined cheese that is gorgonzola.
If you've been following along with my blog the past couple of months, then you'll know I’ve been working with President’s Choice and their PC Black Label since last year – they send me a super cool black box full of surprise ingredients and then I get to play around and develop a recipe with these ingredients. It's such a fun way to get my creative juices flowing in the kitchen!
I love PC Black Label and was an avid fan before we even partnered together because their products are aimed at passionate foodies like myself. They're always on the cusp of new food trends such as squid ink pasta, and their spice blends are such a great addition to my pantry (think Middle Eastern za'atar spice and Indian-inspired garam masala). I also love their pizza sauce (see the portobello pizza mushrooms I made with it last year) and luxurious desserts, especially their salted caramel ice cream!
The biggest part of the fun is that I never know what I’m going to receive in each monthly box, so it’s been really fun to guess what I'm going to be sent next and what flavours I'm going to focus on. And now thanks to this month's giveaway post, you can experiment in your kitchen too!
This month, I received a PC Black Label Pistachio Ice Cream, PC Black Label Gorgonzola Dolce Blue Cheese, and PC Black Label Green Tea in my PC Black Label black box, and I almost couldn't pick the one ingredient I was going to focus on. Green tea is so versatile and can be used in everything from desserts to savoury dishes, and the ice cream is just so divine and creamy I knew I had to keep it for myself to enjoy on its own.
And well, I looooooove me some cheese so naturally I knew I had to play around with the gorgonzola and this flatbread was born!
For this Easy Steak Gorgonzola Flatbread, I combined my favourite veggies and sauteed them in a skillet while grilling the steak outside on the BBQ. I also used a pre-made store bought pizza shell to help cut down the cook time, and cooked it on the BBQ after the steak was finished to get a nice smoky char on it – though that's not to say you couldn't roll out some pizza dough and create a crust from scratch!
Of course I added arugula and the PC Black Label Gorgonzola Dolce Blue Cheese from this month's black box to finish it all off and add a bit of richness to this flatbread. SO GOOD!
You'll notice I didn't add any additional cheese to the bottom of this flatbread, and that's totally something you can do if you prefer to have more of a cheesy base but I think you're headed more into pizza territory if you were to do that. We want to keep this light and summery, with the least amount of prep work possible.
I love this gorgonzola because there's no grating or melting involved. The cheese adds the perfect bite of flavour and is super easy to work with, plus it pairs perfectly with the steak. If you haven't tried it before, you're going to love it, especially if you love blue cheese!
