A quick and easy main that would serve well with veggies, potatoes or a salad.
1 ½ cups balsamic vinegar
3 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp butter
6 (5- to 6-oz) filet mignon steaks (each about 1-inch thick)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 oz soft fresh goat cheese
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Transfer the steaks to plates. Drizzle the balsamic sauce around the steaks and serve.
