Want a nice steak dinner but not the nice steak price tag? Well, you’ll need to try this out! Bistecche al Rosmarino (be-stay-kay rose-mar-e-no) is simply Italian for Rosemary Steaks.
I think you all know by now about my honking big Rosemary Bush! So, I <3 to use fresh Rosemary whenever I have a chance. I was lucky enough to pick up a package of Sirloin Tip Steaks for $4.22 (yes it was on sale! yippee!) at my grocer & it was enough to feed my family of five!
I know, I know, you’re thinking Sirloin Tip? Yes, not my first choice BUT you’re going to marinade it for 2-3 hours & infuse it with beautiful fresh Rosemary, Garlic, Olive Oil & Wine! Dee-lightful! Plus you get to set it on fire for an extra Ta-da! Makes eating Sirloin Tip a whole lot nicer! You can use any thin type steaks you find. Looking for about 100g a piece. If you go with a thicker steak just adjust your cooking time! No worries. But please, for the sake of the steak, don’t ever cook with any wine you wouldn’t drink yourself!
This was a beautiful meal for a beautiful price! & it was quick. Yes, you do have to think ahead & marinade it but that’s a quick 5 minutes (at the most) & then you forget about it until it’s time to grill! A whopping 6 minutes cook time! Schweet! I served this with some fresh roasted broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes so it was a nice healthy filling meal. And pretty! Oh so pretty (sorry couldn’t help myself).
Not to mention the ooohs & aaaaahs you’ll get when you set the steak on fire at the table! (just remember to kindly move all the paper products out of the way first – just sayin’)
What you’ll need:
4 steaks (about 100g each)
1 cup of olive oil
1 cup of dry white wine
1/4 cup of fresh Rosemary – minced
1 clove of fresh garlic – minced
90% alcohol – splash
fresh cracked black pepper
8-10 sprigs of fresh Rosemary
What to do:
In a casserole dish (or large enough container to marinate your steaks) add the wine, olive oil & season generously with pepper. Stir together with fork. Place steaks into mixture and allow to marinade for 2-3 hours. Place in refridgerator & turn the steaks every so often. When steaks have marinated allow them to come to room temperature prior to cooking them. (I like to take them out of the fridge about 30 minute prior to cooking them) You can cook them either on the grill or in a grill pan over medium – high heat for 2-3 minutes per side.
On a heat resistant serving tray, arrange your Rosemary Sprigs. Place the steaks ontop of the Rosemary. Add a splash of alcohol on top & set on fire. Once flame is extinguished serve immediately.
Goes great with:
Roasted Broccoli, Garlic Mashed Potatoes
