Filet Mignon with Balsamic Syrup and Goat Cheese


We all know that filet mignon melts in your mouth. But what about when you top it with creamy goat cheese and a sweet balsamic glaze? Yup, it stills melts in your mouth. I made this for Sunday night dinner alongside an episode of Dexter (how fitting, right?) on top of a simple spinach salad so that it could be the star of the show. Want to impress your date/husband/friends? Make this amazingly simple yet decadent dinner, and they won't be disappointed. If they are...well send the leftovers to me. I never let a good steak go to waste!

Filet Mignon with Balsamic Syrup and Goat Cheese


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. butter (or oil of choice)
  • 4 filet mignon steaks, about 1 inch thick
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 oz. goat cheese
In a small pot, bring balsamic and sugar to a boil. Let it cook and reduce down, stirring occasinally for about 18 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat broiler. Heat up a skillet on the stove over medium-high heat. Add butter or oil to the pan and allow it to melt. Season the steaks with salt and pepper, then place into the hot pan. Cook for 3 minutes on each side for medium.

Remove steaks from the pan and place onto a baking sheet. Top each steak with crumbled goat cheese. Broil for 1-2 minutes until the cheese just begins to soften and brown on the top.

Place each steak on a serving plate and drizzle with the balsamic glaze. Serve hot.
