  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Rub the New York steaks on both sides with the Worcestershire sauce, then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the steaks on the preheated grill until they are beginning to firm, and are hot and slightly pink in the center, 6 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Once the steaks are done, cover them with two layers of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes.
  3. While the steaks are cooking, prepare the cherry sauce by bringing the red wine to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat; boil for 5 minutes. Stir in the cherries, sugar, and vanilla extract. Return to a boil, then reduce heat to medium, and simmer until the cherries are tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Dissolve the cornstarch in the water, then stir into the simmering cherry sauce. Cook for a few minutes until the cherry sauce thickens. Pour the sauce over the steaks to serve.

Excellent recipe! I used Merlot and a 14oz bag of dried, pitted cherries.

Was pretty good, however I think it should be on something other than steak. Pork would be good.

This tastes great. I added ginger garlic pimento spice blend onto the steaks. Used dried, pitted cherries re-hydrated in some red wine. The wine almost evaporated completely while simmering so I...

Was craving cherries so I made this with my boyfriend. He was skeptical of the fruit/vanilla with steak but we both loved it! I used dried cherries and red Zin. Wonderful!

I love anything in a wine sauce!

My partner and I didn't care for this at all, we ended up just eating the steak without the sauce. To those who like this... all the power to ya :D

A couple changes to suit my guests taste- I used 1 cup fresh dark cherries (remove pits) and added 1 cup frozen peaches and 2 T organic turbinado sugar. Reduced this in 2 cups of water. At half...
