Recipe: Marinated Steak with Gravy

I usually just lather garlic salt on our steak before putting it inside the oven to grill and it's good to go.  One Sunday night, I decided to make my steak more flavourful.  So I marinated the meat with more than just garlic salt.

What you need for the marinade:

4 rib eye steaks (or any other meat you want like T-bone or Rump)
Garlic Salt
1/4 cup of dry Red Wine
Rosemary Leaves
6 cloves of Garlic, peeled and smashed
4 tbsps of Olive Oil
4 tbsps of water

What you need to do:
1.  Place aluminum foil on top of baking pan
2.  Sprinkle garlic salt on the steaks and place each one on the baking pan.
3.  Smear crushed garlic on each side of the side.
4.  Pour red wine, olive oil and water on the rib eye steaks.
5.  Sprinkle a dash of Rosemary Leaves and Pepper.
6.  Leave for 15-30 minutes.
7.  When ready for grilling, place baking pan inside the oven.
8.  Oven-grill at 180 degrees for 20-30 minutes depending on how tender you want your steak is.

What you need for the gravy:
3 tbsp Gravox Traditional Powder
2 tbsp butter (or canola spread)
3 tbsp red wine
300 grams slice mushrooms

What you need to do:

  1. Boil 3 tablespoons of Gravox Traditional Powder in 250ml water.
  2. Mix in 2 tablespoons of butter/canola spread and 3 tablespoons of red wine.
  3. Throw in your sliced mushrooms.
  4. Stir until smooth and mushrooms are cooked.

Serve with salad on the side.

Bon appetit!  Happy weekend too!
