With Christmas approaching, pomegranates are becoming more prevalent in the grocery stores, which means they're stocking up in my fridge. I remembered a recipe for steaks that involved pomegranates, which was our wonderful supper tonight. My husband was skeptical about the fruit with the savory meat, but he was impressed. The pomegranate sauce has a hearty flavor that enhances the meat.
Steaks with Pomegranate-Wine Sauce
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Dash of olive oil
1/2 Tbsp. minced shallot or onion
1/4 cup red wine
1/4 cup beef broth
2/3 cup pomegranate seeds
Season steaks with salt and pepper. Grill to your desired temperature while preparing the pomegranate sauce. To make sauce, heat small saucepan on medium. Add oil, and then saute onion for 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil, using a spoon to crush the pomegranate seeds as much as possible. Boil approximately 7 minutes, until the liquid is nearly gone. Remove from heat. Serve the steaks topped with the pomegranate mixture.
