- 1 lb filet Mignon, (about 1-1 1/4 inches thick), trimmed and cut into 4 steaks
- 2 large onions, sliced
- 1/2 cup fat free beef broth
- 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp light butter (I used Brummel & Brown)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1/3 cup Gorgonzola or blue cheese, crumbled
- Heat 1 tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and brown sugar and cook, stirring often, until the onions are very tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes.
- Add broth, vinegar and 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the liquid has almost evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer the onions to a bowl; cover to keep warm. Clean and dry the pan.
- Sprinkle the remaining salt and the pepper on both sides of each steak.
- Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the pan over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
- Turn them over and top with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the steaks are cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare.
- Serve the steaks with the caramelized onions.
