Steak with a red wine sauce, somewhat of a classic dish, warming, welcoming and rich. It’s one of those dishes that plays on the perfect combination of beef and potato and one that almost every chef has a little tip or trick to make.
For a really great steak with red wine sauce recipe we suggest this one from our trusted friends at ChefSteps.com who have put together yet another thoughtful and in-depth guide on how to make the perfect steak with red wine sauce and perfectly fluffy mashed potatoes.
As with most of the Chef Steps recipes this one gets right into the technique and details required to cook your meat perfectly with particular emphasis placed on controlling heat and how it is applied to the steak.
It’s worth noting the beautiful meat used to start the dish, the marbling is perfect and getting the right cut certainly helps in making a nice juicy steak. The meat is first seared then cooked in a water bath before being finished again in the pan.
The juices from the meat, some red wine and a good helping of butter are used to make the sauce. If you like the idea of improving on a classic recipe with some professional technique this is a great starting point.
