Red Wine Steak Sauce

This red wine sauce will take any steak to the next level. Grab a bottle of your favorite dry red wine and get cooking! We recommend Braganini Reserve Chambourcin, Michigan Awesome Red Blend, or One Harvest Dry Red!


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 steaks (10 to 11 ounces each; about 1 inch thick), fat trimmed, patted dry
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup full-bodied red wine
  • 1/2 cup beef stock
  • 3 tbsp cold butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp Dijon mustard


  1. Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season steaks with 3/4 teaspoon salt and some pepper. Cook until deep golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reaches 130 degrees, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter, and tent with foil. Repeat with remaining oil and steaks. Let steaks rest in a 250 degree oven.

  2. Reduce heat to medium, and add wine to skillet. Cook until almost completely reduced, about 5 minutes.

  3. Add beef stock, and cook until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 2 1/2 minutes.

  4. Reduce heat to low, and whisk in butter (1 piece at a time) and mustard.

  5. Stir in any juices from the platter, and season with salt and pepper. Spoon sauce over steaks.
