Not as beautiful as sgrishka's photo, but shows another plating option. It was the holidays, and I added dried cranberries to the Shiraz sauce in the final minutes. Rich and delicious!

FABULOUS recipe and amazingly easy (thanks to the detailed instructions). Only required my husband's help to make sure it was timed just right. The only thing we'd change was less tomato paste and would cook slightly less - ours was medium/well. This will be a recipe we use for many years to come!
Made this today for my husbands birthday. Paired it with some baked stuffed shrimp! Wow! Best surf and turf ever! It was so worth the time and grocery bill! He absolutely loved it as did I!! I suggest everyone try this!!
Outstanding recipe! Great directions to cook a perfect steak and the Shiraz sauce was simply fantastic! What a great wine for both cooking and drinking. My wine guy talked me into buying both an imported Australian and a domestic Californian Shiraz. I'm glad he did. Both were fantastic wines. When tasted side by side, to me, the Australian was slightly smoother in both aroma and taste, while the Californian seemed slightly sweeter. However, tasted separately, I could not tell which was which? So, when considering that the Californian was very inexpensive, and even at almost twice the cost, the Australian was still quite affordable. I will be using the Californian Shiraz for most of my cooking and drinking needs and reserve the Australian Shiraz for drinking on special occasions. You know, buy American and do my part for the US economy.
