22 Dec

For those of you who watch Good Morning America, you may have seen Radically Simple this morning as Sara Moulton showed off the best cookbooks of 2010. To see the complete list, click here.  Also featured, was Tournedos Balsamico with Rosemary & Gorgonzola Dolce, today’s recipe which I have shared below.

Tournedos Balsamico with Rosemary & Gorgonzola Dolce

4 thick beef tenderloin filets, about 10 ounces each
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary, plus sprigs for garnish
4 ounces creamy gorgonzola cheese, cut into 4 slices

Place the filets in a shallow baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the oil and 2 tablespoons of the vinegar over the beef. Rub the rosemary into the meat. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan until very hot. Add the filets; cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer to a platter and let rest 5 minutes. Cook the remaining 4 tablespoons vinegar in a small skillet over high heat until reduced by half. Drizzle the steaks with the reduced vinegar; top with a thin slice of cheese. Garnish with rosemary sprigs. Serves 4

This recipe along with 324 others can be found in Radically Simple: Brilliant Flavors with Breathtaking Ease, chosen by The New York Times, People Magazine, and Good Morning America as one of this year’s best cookbooks, it’s the perfect holiday gift for the chef in your life.
