Filet Mignon With Goat Cheese And Balsamic

Filet mignon is always a celebratory cut of steak, and this simple recipe makes it feel extra special. 

When reduced, balsamic vinegar becomes very sweet with a complex, rich flavor. That sweetness pairs so well with the succulent, savory steak. Goat cheese offers a great tang and creamy texture that adds even more flavor.

Pair this with Herbes De Provence roasted potatoes, baked Parmesan mashed potatoes, or even a basic creamy Polenta to give it more of an Italian flair. An herbaceous bitter vegetable pairs well with the richness of the dish, too - like broccoli rabe with raisins and pine nuts, or pesto and prosciutto asparagus.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
