Number of Servings: 8


    2 cups favorite dry red wine (Do Not use cooking wine - has salt added to it).
    1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil.
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar.
    8 cloves of fresh garden garlic, roughly chopped or dried garlic flakes if out of season.
    3 Tablespoons fresh herb garden rosemary, roughly chopped or dried rosemary if out of season.
    2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes.
    2 teaspoons kosher salt or sea salt.
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or multi-colored peppercorns.


To Marinate the Steaks: Place the steaks in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and then refrigerate for 1-1/2 to 2 hours, turning the bag occasionally. This allows your steaks to fully absorb all the robust flavors in this wonderful marinade.

Please calculate the meat you chose seperately!

Remove the marinated steaks from the plastic bag and discard the marinade. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels so they beautifully caramelize on the grill during cooking. When done drying, allow the steaks to sit at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.

Pre-heat your grill. Grill the marinated steaks over direct HIGH heat until medium rare, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Allow the steaks to rest after grilling at room temperature for a few minutes before serving warm with a spoonful of the delicious sun-dried tomato butter on top of each one.

Time doesn't include time to let sit.
