Grilling weather is coming, take a look at this!

One of the blogs I like to follow is Benito's Wine Review. Although the emphasis is on wine, he also ventures into the culinary world.  This week he talked about making a compound butter with reduced red wine that looked so good I had to take the last of a bottle of good red and do it myself.  Above you see a steak with the end result of the wine butter making.  Benito gives step by step instructions (with amusing but very useful warnings). And when he talks about the way it melts onto and into the steak.... Oh, and he said the dog in the background is his faithful 12-year old mutt Wolfgang.  He's getting a
little senile, Ben says, but the smell of steak still brings him to the table!  Give it a try if you have the last of a bottle of almost any red wine and your friends will flock to your table too!
