Ingredients

  • 1/2 bottle rich, full-bodied red wine (recommended: Amarone)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 (8 to 12-ounce) rib-eye steaks, about 1/2-inch thick
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Combine wine and sugar in a large pot and bring to boil; lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in cloves, orange zest, nutmeg, and cinnamon and remove pan from heat to cool. Put steaks in a large baking dish and pour marinade over them. Marinate steaks in refrigerator for at least several hours and up to 3 days. 

Take steaks out of the marinade, season with salt and pepper, and cook them in a very hot skillet, about 2 minutes each side for medium rare.

Cook's Note

You can grill or broil them if you prefer. Slice the meat about 1/4-inch thick and serve.
