    This was tasty and I will definitely try it again. I used 3 tsp of fresh minced garlic (more kick than the jar stuff). I think that it would be better if it were a bit thicker. Next time I will reduce it more or possible add a touch of corn starch. I would also make the mashed potatoes to take advantage of using all of the sauce. It was a nice weekend meal.

    I think you have to switch the amounts of soy & balsamic vinegar in this recipe or the vinegard is lost. If you do put 2T of vinegar & 1T of soy, you can leave out all or most of the honey. I didn't think this recipe needed the honey at all. My husband was dipping his bread in the sauce it was so good.

    Just had this for dinner tonight and this glaze is a nice touch for a filet or any steak I'm sure. Very easy to make except you probably need to double the recipe, I barely had enough for 2 steaks. I served this with parmesan scalloped potatoes and steamed veggies - very good!

    Another successful meal made with filet mignon! I made this for my boyfriend and our friend, who absolutely loved it! This meal will definitely become a regular at the dinner table. I used chicken broth in place of the sherry, because well, that's what I always do when a recipe calls for wine, and I believe it creates a much better taste.

    Delicious! Would definitely make again. I used Braggs Amino Acids instead of soy sauce.

    Made this for dinner the other night for my fiance and it was incredible. We both loved it and I wouldn't change a thing. I used filet mignon and since they were so thick, we cooked them about 5 minutes per side for medium rare and it was perfect. We poured the remaining sauce over the filets we didn't eat and the next day they were even more flavorful. This is on our regular rotation of recipes now.

    Yum!!! Like another reviewer, I left out the honey and found it to be incredibly tasty, as did my husband. I made double the sauce but only 2 steaks, as we are sauce lovers. For us, that ended up being just the right amount. Served with fried potatoes and a simple side salad. Will make again soon!

    Fabulous. I seared the steaks in the frying pan 3 minutes on each side then finished the steaks in our Traeger BBQ 8 minutes each side @325 degrees. Perfectly cooked. I used real garlic, not from a jar. Served with baked potatoes, sauted mushrooms, and steamed green beans. Perfect Father's Day dinner. Will make again for special occasions.

    This is a great recipe, and very easy to make! I pan-seared the steaks (two big NY strips) about 3 minutes on each side and then finished them in the oven at about 400. The sauce is a breeze to make---I misread the recipe and put two tablespoons of honey in the sauce as opposed to teaspoons, and it still turned out great. Added a dash of cornstarch for a little more thickness at the end. Highly recommend, and will keep this recipe on the docket for when company comes over.

    This has been THE go-to recipe in our family for filet. Since filet is so expensive, its been reserved for special events like Christmas and most recently, my ex's birthday. He swears its the best meal he's ever hard bar none and puts any fancy steak place to shame. We use an instant meat thermometer to ensure its cooked just right. Lastly, I highly recommend Costco's filets. They never disappoint.

    I loved this meal the first time I made it but I burned the sauce so I had to start with a cool pan to make it. I got so confident with making this only once, the second time I burned the outside of my steaks and didn't cook the middle long enough. I even sent the fir alarms off. But I will for suse try again until I get this down to an art, I love this meal.

    Made these for my dad's 75th birthday and what a hit. The sauce was delicious. Served with roasted fingerling potatoes, fresh asparagus, king crab legs and a salad. A very special meal for a very special occasion and the filet mignon turned out great.
