Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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 added 35% cooking cream to get some sauce out of it. It turned out pleasantly sweet but not overpowering. The steaks needed a little more seasoning in my opinion. Read More

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! Read More

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 way point of reduction I added the Worcestershire and reduced that by half. Then I added 1/4 cup of red wine and 1/2 cup Brandy and reduced to au sec. Removed from heat and pureed in blender. Deleted the corn starch and vanilla altogether. Topped a center cut pork tenderloin chop with sauce. Amazing to say the least. Read More
