  1. Sprinkle freshly ground pepper over both sides of each steak, and sprinkle with salt to taste.
  2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place steaks in hot pan, and cook for 1 minute on each side, or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low, and add balsamic vinegar and red wine. Cover, and cook for 4 minutes on each side, basting with sauce when you turn the meat over.
  3. Remove steaks to two warmed plates, spoon one tablespoon of glaze over each, and serve immediately.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I can't comment on the preparation of the steaks in this recipe, as hubby grilled ours outdoors over charcoal. I do have to say, however, that I would never simmer the filets in the reduction. ...
