Fantastic! Loved it. Word of advice: you can't make the sauce in advance because it gets hard when it cools.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  3. Melt the butter in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper.
