  • 2 t olive oil
  • 10 oz filet mignon - 2 - 5 oz filets about 1 1/2 inches thick
  • Sea Salt and pepper - fresh ground to taste
  • 1 shallot - finely diced
  • 1/2 C dry red wine
  • 2 t balsamic vinegar
  • 2 t rosemary leaves - fresh chopped
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 oz blue cheese - crumbles
  • 2 T balsamic glaze


  • Preheat your pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add olive oil and heat until very hot.  
  • Sear the steak on one side for 3-4 minutes, flip and sear the other side for another 3-4 minutes, for medium-rare or until a minute or 2 of the desired level of doneness. 
  • Remember to adjust cooking time based on thickness, less time for thinner and more time for thicker. See note below on testing for temperature.*
  • Remove the steaks from the pan and cover with foil. They will finish cooking while you make you the sauce.
  • Add the shallots and cook until they start to soften. Add rosemary and cook another 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the wine and balsamic, stir to mix.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for about 10 minutes until reduced by at least half.
  • Turn off the heat and add in the butter and 1 oz of crumbled blue cheese stirring constantly until melted and combined. Spoon over the steak.
  • Top each steak with 1/2 oz of blue cheese and half of the sauce.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze and enjoy with a nice glass of red wine.
