Red Wine Marinade

Red red wine it's up to you

Red red wine it’s up to you

This is my go to marinade for steaks. It can be reduced for a sauce if desired or discarded after the meat is grilled. This is enough to season two 1 1/2″ thick steaks.

Red Wine Marinade

  • 1 cup good dry red wine
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1/8 cup hot sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 basil leaves torn by hand and quickly crushed
  • 1 ground star anise

Mix everything in a storage container. Season steaks with salt and pepper and submerge in marinade. Flip every four hours and marinade at least eight hours.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
