Steak in Red Wine Sauce

2 steaks
2 c good quality red wine
garlic powder
fresh ground pepper
olive oil
4-8 tbspn butter, chopped into small pieces

Using a baking dish that is big enough to hold your steak, fill with red wine. Whisk in garlic powder and pepper. Marinade steak for at least 2 hours (or overnight). Add oil to a non-stick pan, and sear steak on each side for 2 minutes on each side (do not overcook - steak should be medium rare). Remove steak from pan and place on plate. Add marinade to steak drippings and boil until reduced to 1/2. Take the pan off the heat and whisk in the butter, a bit at a time, until melted. The colour of the sauce should lighten and sauce should thicken up. Serve steak and pour sauce over. Excellent with greens and mash.
