It wasn't for me, I did everything exactly, maybe I didn't boil long enough? It's my first time using the balsamic, maybe if I new what a dash of soy sauce was? Maybe someone has some pointers?

Used this as a fondue dipping sauce and it was excellent. Doesn't rewarm well though, needs to be made just prior to serving.

This is fabulous! I only ended up using about 4 T. Butter (yes, must be butter!) and it was great. Use really good wine and you will have a killer sauce. Fabulous.

We've made this three times in the past month. Absolutely delicious, and I wouldn't change a thing. We serve the sauce in little bowls for dipping.

This is very yummy--this coming from someone who not only loves balsamic vinegar but also sweet things. I do think that I would cut down on the honey--maybe in half--and a little of the butter....

This is an excellent sauce, but I don't feel it needs all of that butter. I halve the butter and it is still very rich. The first time I made it, I used the full amount and it was just overkil...

This sauce is incredible. A must try for all steak lovers. Everything on my plate was dipped in the sauce at some point during dinner, it's that good! I followed the instructions exactly except...

I didn't change a thing, but I did guess on measurements and quadrupled the recipe. The simmering is important, it gets better over time. Thanks so much!

This is my new favorite sauce! Outstanding!
