  2. Stir balsamic vinegar into skillet, bring to a simmer and cook over medium heat until vinegar is reduced by 2/3 to create a thick sauce, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in chile peppers and reduce heat to low.
  4. Whisk in tomato paste, salt and black pepper. Remove skillet from the heat.
  5. Stir in butter; whisk constantly until the butter melts and is completely incorporated into the sauce.

This is the first Chef John recipe that was just OK for us. This was very acidic. I used really good balsamic but it was a very strong - overwhelming flavor. Sorry but this wasn't quite to our tastes.

Simple and really tasty! However I have to ask why no salted butter? I get it for this recipe, but it can be pretty darn tasty on toast or a Ritz cracker... Just defending my love for the seasoning of life salt.
