2016 Cabernet Sauvignon with Caprese Steak
- 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsps honey
- 2 tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp dried thyme
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 4 (6-oz.) filet mignon (or sirloin steaks)
- 2 beefsteak tomatoes, sliced
- kosher salt
- 4 slices fresh mozzarella cheese
- Fresh basil leaves, for serving
In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, garlic, honey, olive oil, dried thyme, and dried oregano.
Pour over steak and let marinate at least 20 minutes (longer is better if you have the time).
Season sliced tomatoes with salt and pepper.
Heat grill to high. Grill steak 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, then top with mozzarella and tomatoes and cover grill until cheese is melty, 2 minutes.
Top with basil before serving. Serve on a bed of simple pasta drizzled with olive oil (or butter).
