This easy and delectable recipe for rosemary merlot flank steak adds some red wine and herb flavor to grilled steak. A perfect grilled supper, especially with another glass of merlot on the side!
Well, it’s now reliably over 50 degrees most days here in the Northeast, and you know what THAT means.
It’s GRILLING time.
Not that the resilient and reliable Southern husband won’t happily dig the grill out from under a snowbank in the middle of February if I really need him to.
But let’s face it, it’s a lot more fun when the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the flowers are blooming and you don’t have to wear your snow boots.
This recipe is the perfect one to kick off grill season, and if you don’t count the time I sent him outside in a snowstorm to roast those tomatoes for me, it’s the first time the Southern husband has seriously cranked up the grill so far this year.
Here’s how you make rosemary merlot flank steak!
You need a nice flank steak for this one, and you marinate it for at least 30 minutes in a mixture of chopped onions, beef broth, chopped fresh rosemary, salt, oregano and (here’s the beauty part) about a cup of red wine.
I love a nice glass of merlot, so that’s what my steak got to marinate in. I may have a glass while I was waiting for the marinade to do its work.
Once the steak is off the grill, let it rest under a piece of foil while you make the sauce, which is basically a mixture of that marinade you just soaked the steak in, with some tomato paste and Dijon mustard stirred in.
Simmer it for about 5 minutes or so until it is reduced to about a cup.
Now slice up that steak, pour some of that delectable sauce over the top, and summer will seem just around the corner.Print
