  • 4 (6 ounce) filet mignon steaks
  • seasoned salt to taste
  • cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups onion slices
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled


  • 1   Season steaks with seasoned salt and black pepper, and arrange in a single layer in a large baking dish. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and rosemary. Pour mixture over filets, and turn to coat. Marinate for up to 30 minutes.
  • 2   While you are marinating the meat, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onion slices in butter until soft, then stir in sugar. Continue cooking until onions are caramelized. Set aside.
  • 3   Preheat grill for high heat on one side, and medium heat on the other side.

Top each filet with a quarter of the caramelized onions and blue cheese. Close the lid, and continue cooking until the cheese is melted.
