    I loved this! But I saved myself some aggravation. I started out with balsamic glaze (I get it at Trader Joe's). So all I had to do was mix the glaze and mustard together. Yummy!

    I just made this for dinner and both my husband and I hated the sauce. The mustard was way to dominant. It's a good thing that the steaks I got were delicious w/o the sauce.

    I made this recipe along with the suggested rosemary potatoes and string beans. It looked fancy and tasted great and it took about 40 minutes from start to finish, including boiling the water for the side dishes. My husband thought the sauce was excellent. I don't make a lot of steak but I would definitely make this again. It makes a nice dinner for two and would also be an impressive company meal.

    This sauce was amazing! However I wasn't prepared for the strong smell of burning balsamic vinegar! I turned the heat down to medium but the smell made my eyes tear up. This is a great sauce for any steak!
