Add the remaining balsamic vinegar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon sea salt and all the sage, and simmer for 30-40 minutes.

  • Next, prepare the grill to medium-high heat. Grill steaks to medium rare, 3-4 minutes each side. Remove steaks from the grill and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
