    This is one of my husband's favorite beef recipes and it's actually pretty easy to make. I was asked to share it, so here it is:

    Makes 2-3 servings

    2-3 extra lean filet mignon steaks (about 16 ounces), rimmed completely of visible fat
    1/3 cup light balsamic vinaigrette

    Gorgonzola & walnut topping:
    1 tablespoon less fat margarine or whipped margarine
    1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese or blue cheese
    1 teaspoon minced garlic
    1/4 teaspoon dried basil, oregano, or thyme
    1 1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    dash black pepper
    2 tablespoons toasted walnut pieces (pecans can be substituted)

    1. Marinate filet mignon in vinaigrette for at least 2 hours in refrigerator. Flip filets a few times if in shallow dish.
    2. Add margarine or whipped butter, gorgonzola, garlic, basil (or other), balsamic vinegar, pepper, and walnuts to a mini food processor and briefly pulse to blend. If you don't have a processor, just blend ingredients together with fork in a small bowl.
    3. Remove filets from marinade and broil on a foil-lined baking dish, about 6-inches from the heat or flame for about 4-8 minutes per side (depending on the thickness of the filets).
    4. Remove filets from the oven and distribute the cheese mixture over the top of the filets. Return to broiler for about 30-60 seconds until topping is golden. SERVE!
