    Great sauce, super-easy. We rested the cooked steaks for 15min then added the accumulated juices to the saucepan. Otherwise made all to recipe. Gorgeous presentation, great flavors. Served with CL's sauteed brussels sprouts & bacon.

    This was excellent! I seeded a pomegranate & don't know it was worth the effort of having the seeds in the dish but it did add to the presentation. Think you can use any red wine you have on hand. Served with spaghetti squash mixed with Parmesan instead of potatoes.

    This was a great simple recipe. The sauce was nice company to the rich, tender steak. I will definitely be making this again only I will grill the steaks... adding a little flavor kick to the recipe :)

    This was delicious and so easy! I wouldn't change anything other than maybe add a bit more of the shallots.

    I made this tonight for my husband and me and it was not only fast but fabulous! The sauce was a perfect balance for the beef; the only difference in ingredients is that I had pomegranate/cherry juice on hand and used that; don't know that it made any difference. I served with it a simple salad and baked sweet potatoes and we loved it!! Can't wait to make it for friends. Good job CL!!

    Ditto to all rave reviews. I used a jar of pomegranate juice (not wanting the hassle of working with the real fruit, though I agree that the presentation would be better with the seeds). I used a malbec instead of pinot noir - and agree that many varieties of red wine will work well. Served with gnocchi and green beans. Simple yet elegant!

    I fixed this for my wife as a special dinner - though I used the Burgundy Wine in place of the Pinot Noir (I had it on hand) and it is absolutely fabulous. If any man who would like to impress his wife or girlfriend with a terrific meal that is simple and quick to make THIS IS IT!!

    Best steaks ever. This is now one of my husband's absolute favorite meals. We tried it first last year, and this is our go-to date night, special occasion choice for dinner. I use POM juice, serve it with fresh green beans and baked sweet potatoes. You'd never guess this is a "cooking light" recipe. Perfect.

    even if you're not hungry your hunger will increase intensely once you see and savor the delicate flavor of the savory perfume of this magnificent dish.

    Wow, these steaks were amazing. The sauce is a perfect enhancement to the beef. I made the recipe as written except I grilled the steaks. I served it with CL brussels sprouts with prosciutto.

    This is an amazing sauce - going into my "favorites" folder. I used bison steaks b/c we had them on hand, and the only change I had was to add a handful (1/4c?) of fresh pomegranate seeds to the sauce once cooked (Trader Joe's sells them already peeled), which added a nice texture. LOVE!
