Ribeye Steak in Red Wine Sauce

Ribeye Steak in Red Wine Sauce

This weekend I was craving a nice thick, juicy, barely cooked piece of steak. I picked up a really nice looking ribeye steak from the butcher. I decided to do a simple dinner consisting of the steak with a red wine sauce and some creamy roasted garlic mashed potatoes and some spinach. I like to cook my steak simply, seasoned with just salt and pepper and then quickly seared for just a few minutes on each side. A simple red wine sauce is the perfect way to make sure that you don't loose any of the flavour that is stuck to the bottom of the pan after cooking the steak. Although this dinner is kind of simple it is one of my favorites.

Ingredients:
1 ribeye steak (1 inch thick, room temperature)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup red wine
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 shallot (chopped)
1 clove of garlic (chopped)
1/2 teaspoon thyme (chopped)

Directions:
1. Season the steak with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the oil in a pan.
3. Sear the steak on both sides for about 3 minutes per side.
4. Set the steak aside and let rest.
5. Add the wine to the pan and deglaze the pan using a wooden spoon to scrape up all of the the bits from the bottom of the pan.
6. Add the butter, shallot, garlic and thyme and simmer until a sauce is formed, about 3-5 minutes.
7. Serve the steak with the red wine sauce.

We had similar cravings this weekend. Paul made strip loin with a blue cheese crust and a red wine reduction last night for dinner. YUM

Back to work tomorrow - how sad.

You make simple look and sound gourmet Kevin. A better steak than you could get at any restaurant I'm sure...and add the garlic mashed and I'm convinced :D

One of your best photos ever taken, Kevin :)
I've only had rare steak once, at a restaurant I really trusted and loved (actually, I didn't know it would be rare, so much for trust, but I still love them haha). It was... different ;)

The steak and potatoes look really good. I've been looking for more beef recipes because most of the meat recipes that I cook include chicken. I'll have to give this a try. Maybe I don't eat steak properly - I prefer mine medium.

I've been eating so much chicken and fish lately that I also had a very strong craving for steak this weekend. So much so that I had it twice over the last three days! I think I better eat extra healthy for the rest of this week! :)

Dammit, that looks good. That steak, in particular, is done to perfection, just as Peter said. Can I come over? ;)

What a lovely dinner. That's the kind of steak that my husband likes although it's just a touch too rare for my taste. We've not had steak for a long time, maybe that will be on the menu for this weekend :)

Kevin-

Looks great. The Rib-eye is by far my favorite cut of steak, one with just the right amount of marbleing. With the garlic-mashed on the side...Wow!
