Cooking steak in a little butter and garlic ensures it will be tender and flavorful, making a quick sauce with a bit of shallot, red wine and grape jelly will elevate your meal to something truly special...all in under 30 minutes.
2 grass fed steaks (strip, sirloin or ribeye)
1 shallot, minced (can substitute 1/4 cup of finely minced onion)
1 tablespoon Healthy Gourmet Kitchen Grape Jelly
2 sprigs fresh thyme
1 cup red wine
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons butter (preferably from grass fed cows)
2 large cloves garlic
Heat the olive oil and butter in saute pan over medium heat. Peel and crush garlic, add to pan.
Add steak, salt and cook until browned on one side, about 5 - 7 minutes depending on thickness of steak.
Turn steak using tongs and continue to cook until it reaches desired level of doneness.
Remove steak from pan and place on plate to rest. It should rest for 10 - 15 minutes.
Pour off most of oil/butter (can save for later use), add shallot and thyme to pan and saute for 1 - 2 minutes. Add red wine and cook over low heat until reduced in half then add grape jelly. Whisk sauce to incorporate jelly and reduce for another minute.
Place steak on plate and top with sauce.
