1/2 Photos of Filet Mignon W/Balsamic Syrup & Boursin Cheese
One of my favorite foods. I've had this at my good friend's house with baked potatoes, asparagus and fresh baked bread. A meal to die for! Delicious! Update -09/15/2009: Since some reviewers have had trouble with the balsamic syrup - I suggest that you don't make the syrup and make a slight glaze with the balsamic vinegar and serve it with the filet mignon and the Boursin cheese & since I can't change the title of the recipe I suggest you do that.
