Made this last night for husband's birthday dinner. We both loved it. After reading some of the reviews here, I cooked the sauce separately and made some changes. Used 2 5 oz filets wrapped in bacon and rubbed with coarse ground black pepper & Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning. Seared the bacon in a hot pan by turning steaks on their sides with tongs before cooking 3 minutes on each side for rare. Started out with hot pan and gradually reduced heat as steaks cooked.
For the sauce, used red table wine & doubled it along w/the balsamic vinegar called for in the recipe. Added 2 tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 tsp rosemary, 1 tsp minced garlic. Reduced sauce by half & used for dipping.
We thought the sauce complimented the meat wonderfully without overpowering it. This one is definitely a keeper.
