Balsamic and Goat Cheese Filet Mignon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mbartholdson

I found this recipe on Food Network and it is incredible. Really easy to prepare and one of my (picky) husbands favorite meals! I have also made it with sirloin, just as good and a little cheaper :) I buy the peppered goat cheese from the deli and it adds a little spice.

I do not like much red meat and , but I love filet mignon and made this recipe for my husband and you now what? I loved it! It was wonderful and full of flavor. I didn't have basalmic vinegar, so used red wine vinegar.Thank you very much! I will be making this again for sure.
