In the spirit of the amazing cult wines that we’ve picked up lately, I thought it was time to use some of the gorgeous wine to cook up one of our absolute favorite recipes. Plus, what a great excuse to open one of the bottles!?! Ben & I make this Better Homes & Gardens Wine Glazed Steak dinner whenever celebrating something, you know…like a Friday night! I’ve added in our notes on how to make the best possible steak.
Let’s talk about steak… Where do you guys pick up your steaks? I have had the hardest time with it. I just can’t seem to get good steaks at our local grocery stores. I stock up at Harris Ranch whenever we take a road trip down to Southern California, but it’s unrealistic to drive three hours to get steak every time! I recently discovered an adorable little butcher shop about 15 minutes away. Everyone had been telling me to go give it a try, but I had visions of something out of a horror show. I’m so glad I took the plunge. They had an amazing selection of grass fed steak in every possible cut, amazing looking lamb, pork chops, and a whole seafood counter. They even had a wine tasting counter where you could sample wines. What I appreciated the most was the care that the butchers put into their work. They took the time to discuss what you were planning to make for dinner, offered recommendations, and . They really put a lot of care into their work. NOT the same experience I get from my local grocery store. It was more like the experience of going to a Farmer’s Market where you get to actually talk to farmers. Maybe it’s just my grocery store though. What do you guys think? Where do you shop for your food?
I recommend making this with Garlic Broccoli & Cauliflower to go with this Wine Glazed Steak. It keeps the dinner feeling celebratory while still being low carb and leaves plenty of room for dessert! I suggest some Deviled Strawberries or Mini Cream Cheese Buttercakes!
