filet mignon with rich balsamic glaze

I made this recipe last week and it was delicious. I'm sorry I don't have a photo (of my dish) to post.
Ingredients:
2 (4 ounce) filet mignon steaks
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
salt to taste
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup dry red wine
Directions: 
1. Sprinkle freshly ground pepper over both sides of each steak, and sprinkle with salt to taste. 
2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place steaks in hot pan, and cook for 1 minute on each side, or until browned. Reduce heat to medium-low, and add balsamic vinegar and red wine. Cover, and cook for 4 minutes on each side, basting with sauce when you turn the meat over. 
3. Remove steaks to two warmed plates, spoon one tablespoon of glaze over each, and serve immediately.
