Filet Mignon with Balsamic and Rosemary Glaze

Trying to come up with a dinner without too much meat and found this one on Pinterest (a great site BTW). Simple to put together with some baked potatoes and  steamed broccoli. The glaze was very flavourful.

Filet Mignon with Balsamic Glaze
(makes 4 servings)
Ingredients
• 2 tablespoons plus 1 tablespoon (set aside) butter
• 4 filet Mignon steaks
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• salt to taste
• 2 shallots
• 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
• 1/4 cup dry red wine
• 2 tablespoons rosemary, finely chopped
Directions
1. Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel. Pepper and salt both sides of each steak to taste. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Melt 2 tablespoons butter, then add the fillets to the pan and allow to sear for 4 minutes, then flip and let sear for another 4. Four minutes resulted in a medium well meat. Next time I would try three and three or less! I like medium rare.
2. Transfer the filets to a plate, and keeping the burner on medium high. Melt the last tablespoon butter then add the shallots and saute for 3 minutes. Add the wine and vinegar to deglaze, using a spatula to scrape off the browned bits. Add the rosemary. Bring the mixture to a boil, and season with salt to taste. Turn the heat down to medium and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.
3. Return the fillets to the pan and cook to desired doneness, flipping halfway through. Plate the steaks with steamed vegetables and potatoes, then spoon the reduction over top of the steaks.
4. Enjoy!
