Beef has always had a a lot of controversy surrounding it..from safety issues to health complications.
An article in our paper by a doctor recently stated that lean steak is not as bad as one might think. It has the same saturated fat as chicken with skin on and more iron and complete nutrients then just about anything else.
As I always say..everything in moderation!
I love a good juicy steak.
Marinating for a few hours before grilling tenderizes and infuses the meat with flavor. I created this marinade out of my love for italian herbs. This dish goes beautifully with fresh garden tomatoes, green beans, focaccia bread and a red potato salad.
* 1/3 cup red wine
* 1/4 cup good extra virgin olive oil
* 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
* 1 tbs minced garlic
* 1 tbs each of basil and oregano
* 1/2 tsp pepper
* sirloin steak
Combine all but the steak in a shallow pan or zip lock bag.
Submerge steak in marinade. marinate for at least 1 hour.
Remove and discard marinade.
Grill on the barbecue to your liking and serve.
Wine Suggestion: Gamay Noir
