Port Marinated Steaks

Yield 6 servings
Make Ahead. Steak marinated in port, a sweet red wine with a bit of brandy added to it, takes on a unique flavor. The steak will taste fine if you substitute another sweet red wine, but use port for special occasions.


  • 1 1/2 pounds lean boneless top sirloin steak
  • 1/2 cup port or sweet red wine
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • Cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Trim fat from steak. Combine wine and next 4 ingredients in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add steak; seal bag, and turn bag to coat steak. Marinate steak in refrigerator 8 hours, turning bag occasionally.

  2. Remove steak from marinade; pour marinade into a small saucepan. Bring marinade to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/4 cup. Set aside.

  3. Prepare grill.

  4. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°). Place steak on rack; grill, covered, 5 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Let steak stand 5 minutes. Cut diagonally across grain into thin slices; drizzle with hot marinade.
