Speaking of our cat Lexi.. I want to quickly introduce you to the rest of my family. On my profile you will see that I am a mother to one Savage Beast, one Bailey's Irish Cream, and one Lex Luthor. Well here they are......at their finest:
Savage, aka: Savage Beast (yea, I know he doesn't look that beastly, but trust me!)
Ok, this is what he looks like when he's not trying to sleep :)
Bailey, aka: Bailey's Irish Cream (he's a lover not a fighter)
Lexi, aka: Lex Luthor (watch out for that dark side!!)
Ok, sorry, had to show them off, we don't have kids, so this is what you get :)
The steak was amazing! So tender and juicy and the flavor of the rosemary and wine are phenomenal together! I came up with the creamy horseradish sauce myself. You don't have to use it, but it compliments the steak amazingly well.
Rosemary & Red Wine Steaks
Adapted from About.com
1.5 lbs NY Strip Steaks (2 steaks) (you could use any cut you want)
1/2 cup dry red wine
3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 large garlic cloves, smashed
2 Tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped
Creamy Horseradish Sauce (recipes follows) - optional
Place steaks in a resealable bag. In a small bowl, mix together all other ingredients. Pour over steaks and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours.
Preheat your grill. When grill is ready, grill steaks 5-10 minutes each side, depending on thickness of steaks. When meat reaches desired doneness, remove from heat and let meat rest for 3 minutes before slicing. Serve with creamy horseradish sauce. Enjoy!
Creamy Horseradish Sauce:
1/4 cup sour cream
2-3 Tablespoons horseradish (depending on how spicy you want it)
1 Tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
Combine all ingredients together; mix well. Serve alongside steaks. Any leftover sauce can be covered and refrigerated for up to 5 days.
