Filet Mignon with Balsamic Syrup and Goat Cheese
- 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.
