Balsamic-Glazed Steak

This is a delicious, FAST, and easy dinner.  This tastes like you are eating at a steak house, but only takes about 15 minutes to prepare from start to finish!  We really enjoy this meal!

Balsamic-Glazed Steak
1/2 C Chicken Broth
1/4 C Balsamic Vinegar
1 LG Garlic Clove, minced
2 tsp Olive Oil, divided
3 small assorted-color Bell Peppers, seeded & sliced
1 tsp dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Salt, divided
1/4 tsp Pepper
4 (1/4 LB) Filet Mignons, about 3/4" thick, trimmed or fat

1.  Combine broth, vinegar, and garlic in a bowl; set aside

2.  Heat 1 tsp oil in a large skillet, add peppers, thyme, and 1/4 tsp salt.  Cook until tender crisp.  Transfer to a plate.

3.  Sprinkle the filets with remaining salt and pepper.  Heat remaining oil in skillet.  Add filets and cook until browned, about 3 minutes on first side, and 2 minutes on the other side.  Carefully add the broth mixture (it will boil quickly) and continue to cook the filets, turning occasionally, until done to taste and broth mixture is reduced to a glaze (about 3 minutes).

4.  Divide peppers amoung 4 plates, server with filets and top with glaze.
