Seghesio Family Vineyards Grilled New York Steak alla Pizzaiola

Steak alla Pizzaiola, or the pizza maker’s steak, is a great way to begin the summer grilling season. The sauce is fresh and comes together quick. Its vibrancy matches perfectly with the bright fruit of the Seghesio 2015 Home Ranch.

INGREDIENTS

four 10 ounce New York steaks

salt and pepper

1 cup onion, fine dice

1 cup red bell pepper, diced

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

2 tablespoons garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon of chili flake

1 teaspoon ground fennel seed, toasted

1/4 cup of red wine

2 cups tomatoes, diced

1/4 cup of fresh parsley, chopped

1 tablespoon of fresh oregano, chopped, plus extra leaves

DIRECTIONS

Preheat grill. Rub steaks with salt and pepper. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Grill to your desired doneness and allow rest for 5 minutes before serving.

In the meantime, make the sauce: sweat onion and pepper over medium high heat in 1/4 cup olive oil until they begin to soften. Add garlic, chili flake, and fennel. Deglaze with red wine and cook until it has evaporated.

Remove from heat and stir in tomatoes, parsley, and chopped oregano. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

After steaks have rested, slice and place on platter. Spoon sauce over steaks and garnish with extra virgin olive oil and whole oregano leaves.

Note: Steak alla Pizzaiola, or the pizza maker’s steak, is a great way to begin the summer grilling season. The sauce is fresh and comes together quick. Its vibrancy matches perfectly with the bright fruit of the Seghesio 2015 Home Ranch and the fat cap on the NY steak tames the young tannins. The hint of fennel seed in the sauce helps unfurl the wine’s spice notes and adds great depth to the finish. Salute!
