Filet Mignon with Balsamic Syrup and Goat Cheese

Cook Time: 18 min
Level: Easy
Yield: 6 servings


* 1 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
* 3 tablespoons sugar
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 6 (5 to 6-ounce) filet mignon steaks (each about 1-inch thick)
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 2 ounces soft fresh goat cheese


Boil the balsamic vinegar and sugar in a heavy small saucepan over
medium-high heat until reduced to 1/3 cup, stirring occasionally,
about 18 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Melt the butter in a heavy large
skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and
pepper. Cook the steaks to desired doneness, about 3 minutes per side
for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to a baking sheet. Crumble the
cheese over the steaks and broil just until the cheese melts, about 1
minute. Sprinkle with pepper.

Transfer the steaks to plates. Drizzle the balsamic sauce around the
steaks and serve.
