Merlot marinated steaks

Pour Tastefully Simple’s Merlot sauce over steaks and leave them out at room temperature for at least two hours. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and a little salt and pepper. Grill & serve with creamed spinach & baby reds.

The flavor of this merlot sauce is perfection. This is my go-to marinade for steaks, so simple but tastes so gourmet.

You can order merlot sauce here and seasoned salt here.


Chicken fried steak


You will need:

  • tenderloin filets, sliced in 1/2 inch pieces, tenderized
  • flour
  • 2 eggs
  • cornmeal
  • paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • vegetable oil

Cover the bottom of a skillet with vegetable oil, turn heat to medium. Get out three bowls to make your “steak dunking” station. In the first bowl put flour, the second 2 eggs whisked, and the third paprika, cornmeal, salt and pepper. (I don’t measure these ingredients)

Take a piece of tenderloin dunk into all three bowls and put on your skillet.

Do the same with all the filets and cook on medium heat for about a half an hour, flipping occasionally. Serve with veggies and biscuits and gravy.
