Ingredients

For the Brussel Sprouts:

  • 10 strips of chopped bacon
  • 4 cups of packed thinly shaven Brussel sprouts about 20-25
  • ½ cup of sliced almonds
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

For the Steak and Toppings:

  • 1 cup of balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup of soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1 stick of softened unsalted butter + 2 ounces
  • ½ cup of crumbled bleu cheese
  • 2 8- ounce filet mignon steaks
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Brussels: Add the bacon to a large pan over medium-high heat and cook until crisp.
  • Remove the lardons and add the Brussel sprouts to the pan with the rendered bacon fat and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Add the bacon back into the pan along with the almonds, salt and pepper. Keep warm.
  • Balsamic-Soy Sauce: Add the balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and honey to a medium size pot and cook over medium-low heat until it reaches a temperature of 216 °. or until it becomes thick like a reduced balsamic vinegar glaze. Set aside.
  • Bleu Cheese Butter: In a medium size bowl whisk together the bleu cheese and 1 stick of softened butter until combined. Chill before serving.
  • Steak: Season the steak on all sides with salt and pepper.
  • Add the olive oil to a medium size sauté pan over medium-high heat until it lightly smokes and sear the filet mignons. Add in the 2 ounces of butter and baste the steak constantly until it is browned on all sides and the desired internal temperature is achieved, about 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove the steak and rest on a plate for 3 to 4 minutes before serving.
  • Serve the steak alongside the Brussel sprouts. Top off with bleu cheese butter and a drizzle of balsamic-soy sauce. Note: there will be some sauce left over.
