Red Wine and Rosemary Flat Iron Steak

 Company's coming!


One of my favorite dishes to make when company comes for dinner is something simple, yet elegant and tasty.  Meat and potatoes are called for! What's more hearty than that?

This dish is a favorite of ours and you can certainly swap out the Flat Iron Steak for another cut.  It's a versatile recipe and the flavor is all in the marinade.  What a great marinade it is.



Red wine and rosemary go so well together and really flavor the steak for grilling.  I used an indoor grill as we haven't broke out the grill outside yet.  It's calling me though.  But for now my trusty cast iron indoor grill works miracles!

I served these with Lemon Rosemary Roasted Vegetables.  Another easy dish to make, allowing you more time to spend with guests. Look for the recipe shortly.


All in all this is the perfect company food or family dinner.  You just can't beat meat and potatoes!
  
Red Wine and Rosemary Flat Iron Steak 

serves 4



2 (1-pound each) flat-iron steaks cut into 4 pieces
2 garlic cloves, mashed
1 teaspoon fresh parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup of dry red wine
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper

In a bowl, combine garlic, parsley, mustard, olive oil, red wine, black pepper, and rosemary; mix together well.

In a shallow baking dish, season the steaks moderately with salt and pepper. Cover the steaks with the marinade mixture and cover the dish with plastic wrap. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight. Remove steak from refrigerator and bring to room temperature before cooking.


Preheat the grill over medium heat. Place steaks onto the hot grill and grill to the desired degree of doneness, about 6 – 7 minutes on each side for medium.
