My Favorite Steak

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)
Serves 4

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.


  1. Looks great but I'd have to add mushrooms.

    And I never knew you weren't a steak gal. We might not be able to be friends anymore! ha ha!

  2. Reagan - Thanks! Your comment reminded me that I forgot to put a bit of black truffle oil in the recipe. I like to use it to get the mushroom flavor without actually putting them in because I dislike the texture of them. :)


I love feedback from y'all and try my best to respond to as many questions as possible.
