Merlot Steak


  • 2 cups merlot or another red wine
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 beef steaks your choice (I like NY Strip or Rib Eye), 7-oz.


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate steaks overnight or for at least 5 hours (see recipe).
  • In a large zipper-topped plastic bag, combine all ingredients except steaks; seal the bag securely and shake to combine.
  • Add steaks; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours. Preheat indoor or outdoor grill to MEDIUM-HIGH.
  • Remove steaks from the bag, discarding marinade and bag.
  • Grill steaks for 4 minutes per side (depending on thickness) or until your preferred level of doneness is achieved.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Stir-fried OR grilled mushrooms, red onion, zucchini, and yellow bell peppers.
