Without setting foot on a plane, take a trip to Modena, Italy, home of classic balsamic vinegar. Often, that vinegar is pared with mustard, but here we've give our Modena an acid-y hit with tomato sauce instead. We think it creates a perfect balance with the tender steak, and with the potatoes you'll cook until just about falling apart. You can even dip your roasted broccoli in it. The world's your oyster, or, bottle of balsamic vinegar.
