Steak with Cabernet Mushroom Sauce and CAB SALE!

One of the joys of summer is grilling dinner and sitting outside for the meal with nice company and a good glass of wine. One of the joys in cooking is when you find the perfect balance in a recipe. You can find any number of recipes for mushroom sauce but this hits the spot. This mushroom sauce has a bit of richness from the cream, but avoids being heavy or cloying. It has a bit of bite from the mustard and Worstershire but never loses the good mushroom flavor. Try it, it's bound to be a favorite!Personally, I don't eat beef, but I have eager taste testers for my meat recipes in friends and family. I served this with a rib eye steak, but for me, used the mushroom sauce to top a vegetarian nut loaf. A good wine pairing will be the 2005 Salisbury Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.
3 cloves minced garlic
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
2 steaks
3 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup thin sliced shallots
1/2 cup red wine (try this week's 2004 Yosemite View)
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 Tbsp. Worstershire sauce
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/3 tsp. ground pepper
salt to taste (start with 1/8 tsp.)
1/2 tsp. minced fresh oregano
2 Tbsp. half and half
Heat the grill to high and wipe an oiled cloth over the grill before putting on the steak. Sear one minute on each side, then turn the grill to low and cook to desired doneness, turning halfway through the cooking. In the meantime, melt the butter in a saucepan, then the shallots and mushrooms and cook over low heat, stirring often until mushrooms are cooked. Add the wine, parley, Worstershire, mustard, oregano and pepper, cover and cook a 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the half and half just before serving and season to taste with salt. Serves 2. A good wine pairing will be the 2007 Mariposa Yosemite View Cabernet Sauvignon.
