New York Strip Steak with Peach Balsamic Reduction Sauce
Season the meat with salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet or grill to medium-high heat. (Make sure the pan is hot enough so that the meat sizzles when it touches the pan.) Cook the steaks for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Allow to rest on a plate for several minutes before cutting.
Meanwhile, combine the balsamic vinegar and diced peaches in a bowl; use an immersion blender to puree until smooth. Pour into a hot skillet on medium to medium-high heat so that liquid boils, but not too rapidly. Cook until sauce has reduced by half, and has a syrupy consistency. (Be careful not to reduce it too far, or it will become too thick and sticky.)
To serve, spoon sauce over the steak.
