"Also great for barbecues! The succulent meat together with this summer fruit complement each other surprising well! A great idea for something new. Serve steaks over mashed potatoes."

  1. Mix together the strawberries, brown sugar, and balsamic vinegar in a bowl, and allow to sit for 1 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Heat olive oil in an oven-safe, heavy steel or cast-iron skillet over high heat. Sprinkle the filets with salt and pepper on both sides, gently place in the hot skillet, and sear each side until well-browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Slide the skillet into the preheated oven, and cook until they start to become firm and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Transfer the steaks to a platter, and tent with foil to rest.
  4. Pour steak juices from the skillet into a small saucepan. Strain the strawberries and discard the liquid. Add the strawberries to the steak juices, bring the sauce to a simmer over medium-low heat, and melt the butter into the sauce, tilting the pan several times to gently incorporate the butter into the sauce. Serve each fillet topped with about 1/2 cup of strawberries and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper.

I really liked this one. I didn't strain the liquids, bc I like to have a lot of sauce w my steaks. Next time I'll double yhe amnt of strawberries.

This looked beautiful on the plate, but this wasn't for us.

Fabulous and decadent. The flavors were quite sweet, so you'll want to consider that in selected side dishes that will compliment and balance it. Thanks for the recipe!

I followed the rcipe pretty closely and it all turned out super deliscious! I did leave some of the filets in the oven a bit longer because the wife and a couple of the kids "cant have any pink...

that was great!!!!!!

Good - interesting! I went back to get more strawberries after everyone had started eating, and those bites were better. So, maybe I should have let the sauce sit a minute. I think this would...

So good. Great combination.

I wasn't sure I'd like this, but it's superb - made it for Valentine Day and again the next day because it was so good. The only thing I changed the second time was using canola oil rather than ...

This was a delicious alternative to our usual steak. We grilled the steak w some steak seasoning. I did not add any juices to the strawberries but reduced strawberries w vinegar/sugar and drizzl...
