Yet another freezer dive produced some long lost Mount Adams rib steaks. Maggie requested a marinade similar to the pork tacos from the other night. So, out the blender came and into the refrigerator and spice drawer I went a searching.
1/3 cup red wine
small handful of cilantro
2 tbsp prune and fig chutney
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp mustard powder
1/4 tsp 5 spice powder
2 small shallots roughly chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp minced ginger
Saute and brown the shallots, garlic, and ginger in a little oil until browned. Combine with the remainder of the ingredients in a blender and liquify. This made enough marinade for 4-6 steaks. I only had a couple of hours to marinate my steaks, but more time in the marinade would not hurt and may even be better.
Grill to your desired temperature. I like mine rare.
I served the steaks with shoestring fries and grilled asparagus. A nice way to spice up the average steak.
