Equipment

Notes

If you’d like to make the balsamic reduction, combine 1 cup balsamic vinegar and 3 tablespoons brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 8 minutes until the sauce thickens and is reduced by half.
