I made this for my family the other night. I do not feel it needed the sugar at all we are eating steak and it does not need to be sweet. if you want the side dishes to have some sweetness to them you could have a sweet potato perhaps. I did not put the fresh goat cheese on top because to me this cut of meat does not require an item like this.
