For the Classic Romantics:
Pan-Seared Steak with Creamy Herb Sauce & Garlic Rosemary Roasted Potatoes:
This robust dish complements the bold notes of the Radovan Cabernet Sauvignon while highlighting the creamy richness of the Sirana cheese.
2 ribeye steaks (or your preferred cut)
Salt & pepper
1 shallot, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup red wine
1/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (thyme, rosemary, parsley)
Season steaks generously with salt and pepper. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear steaks to desired doneness. Set aside to rest.
In the same pan, add shallot and garlic. Cook until softened. Deglaze with red wine, scraping up any browned bits.
Stir in broth and heavy cream. Bring to a simmer and reduce until slightly thickened. Stir in herbs.
Toss baby potatoes with olive oil, rosemary, and garlic cloves. Roast in a preheated oven at 400°F / 205°C until tender and golden brown.
Slice steak and return to pan to coat in sauce. Serve with roasted potatoes and a drizzle of extra sauce.
