Recipe Thursday: Goodbye Summer Grilling

As Labor Day approaches this weekend, it’s time to say farewell to lazy summer days and say hello to a new school year. It’s also considered the last “official” grilling holiday of the season, so you can bet we’ll be firing up the grill and dining alfresco by the pool, while we simultaneously contemplate the not so distant future of Holiday season travel and cozy meals by the fireplace.

The perfect grilling feast to close out the summer and take us into new beginnings is a boldly marinated Grilled Hanger Steak (Food Republic) with a reduced red wine sauce. This one will take a bit of time and advanced planning, but it is well-worth the effort, especially with a few nice bottles of wine and good friends to share the feast with. Make sure to set aside a bottle of red for the recipe, which calls for wine in both the marinade and the sauce. Two of Pascal Lambert’s delicious bottlings of Cabernet Franc, Les Perruches and Les Puits Danaé – full of brambly fruit and peppercorn notes – are excellent choices for drinking (and cooking) alongside grilled steak.
