To prepare Balsamic Syrup, bring vinegar to a boil in medium saucepan; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until reduced to about 1/3 cup (consistency will be syrupy). Remove from heat; cool. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Whisk in oil.
Cooking Tip: Prepared balsamic syrup, available in supermarkets and specialty food stores, may be substituted for balsamic reduction.
Meanwhile, press thyme and garlic evenly onto beef Ranch Steaks. Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Place steaks in skillet; cook 8 to 11 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning twice. Carve steaks into thin slices. Arrange arugula and tomatoes on serving platter; drizzle with Balsamic Syrup. Top with steak slices; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and cheese shavings.
