Peeled the tomato before seeding & chopping, otherwise made to recipe. This was really great, an unexpected presentation with the tomatos on top, hiding the rosemary & garlic. Served wtih CL's iceberg wedge with buttermilk dressing & smashed red-skinned potato.

We were't bowled over by this one. Used fresh brandywine tomatoes from the garden, and my husband said they the topping tasted like canned tomatoes warmed up. I didn't think it was quite that bad. Did like the herb crust on the steaks, though. Wonder if a cheaper cut would have been as good. Had a bit of sticker shock at the $18/lb price of beef tenderloins.

This was superb. I made this with filet mignon. It was very tender, but the star was the tomato jam. Fantastic! I felt like I was eating a gourmet meal in a restaurant.

This was SO good! I ended up using filet mignon (it was on sale), so the beef was amazingly tender. I also used a Foreman grill...that worked not so well. The garlic and herbs stuck to the grill pretty badly...I'd say if you're going to use a Foreman, cook the meat first and maybe sautee the garlic, etc separately before putting it on. Would DEFINITELY make this again...great little romantic dinner!

The Steak was fine, but the Jam was what made this recipe great. I used regular Balsamic Vinegar since I did not have White Balsamic, so I can't comment on the difference, but the Jam was very easy to make and had a very bold flavor. Would work on any number of other dishes.

Tasty! We'll be making again.

The tomato jam alone is worth trying this recipe. It was incredible. I doubled the jam recipe & served part of it with my filet (I did use the herb mix in goat cheese which I stuffed into the steak, pan seared, then roasted to finish) & part as a topping for garlic ciabatta bread. Looking forward to the little bit I still have left to go with dinner tonight!
