Hereford House--Chocolate Balsamic and Blue Cheese Fillet
ounces beef top loin, strip, or tenderloin steaks, cut 1-inch thick
teaspoons cracked black pepper
cup crumbled blue cheese (4 oz.)
Chocolate Balsamic Glaze
  1. Sprinkle meat with cracked black pepper. Season to taste with salt. For a charcoal grill, grill steak on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals until desired doneness. Allow 10 to 12 minutes for medium-rare or 12 to 15 minutes for medium. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place steaks on rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.) During the last 3 minutes of grilling, sprinkle blue cheese over the steaks.
  2. To serve, drizzle each steak with 1 teaspoon Chocolate Balsamic Glaze. Serve with the remaining glaze. Makes 4 servings.
Chocolate Balsamic Glaze
cup balsamic vinegar
tablespoons Ghirardelli chocolate syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, stir together 1 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons Ghirardelli chocolate syrup. Bring to boiling over medium heat; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until reduced by half. Remove from heat and stir in 2 tablespoons butter.
