Sometimes I wonder if I should put recipes like this up because they seem so simple...oh well!
I'm really not a big steak kinda gal. I would much rather have grilled chicken 99% of the time. But occasionally, I get a hankering for steak. And so I make it this way. It's my favorite.
Want to know the secret? Worcestershire sauce. It makes the steak more flavorful without being a distinct taste added to your meat. Win-win.
Ribeye Steak in a Red Wine Sauce (printable recipe)
4 Ribeye steaks
2 tsp. worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt and pepper
1 tbsp. butter
1 medium shallot, minced
1 medium onion, sliced thinly
1 cup red wine
1/2 tsp. dried italian seasoning
1-2 tbsp. black truffle oil
On each side of the steaks, rub them with the worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill steaks until they reach your desired level of done-ness. I'm a medium-well girl myself so I usually give mine 8-10 minutes per side and my husband's (he's a medium-rare guy) about 5-8 minutes per side.
While the steaks are grilling, melt butter in a skillet. Add shallot and onion. Cook for a couple minutes or until they have softened. Pour in wine, add italian seasoning and truffle oil. Bring the sauce to a low boil and maintain it until the wine reduces in half it's volume and becomes thick. The alcohol will cook off so it's perfectly safe to serve on a child's steak too.
Remove steaks from grill. Pour wine sauce over each steak. Let rest for a couple minutes before serving.
