- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 teaspoons dried rosemary
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups onion slices

- 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.
