Earlier this summer we had the pleasure of helping Graul’s Market at the Ruxton location with a Friday Night Lights cookout and made the most excellent find of Garlic Onion Jam by Stonewall Kitchen. Sounded like something we needed to use in a recipe with our beef. Life happened and we got busy and it sat waiting for us to remember that we had it. Seeing Many Sparrows Blog using this same jam jogged our memory that we had this delicious treat waiting for us. Now we had to figure out what to do with it….New York Strips….We haven’t done a steak in a long while. What else to do with it though…..Off to Graul’s Market we went for inspiration.
We knew we wanted to thin the Garlic Onion Jam with a red wine so that we could put it on the New York Strips as they grilled, and also to spray on the New York Strips. What else to go with the New York Strips was the next question……What do we see when we walk in…….Fresh Sweet Corn…..LOCAL Sweet Corn…..From Baltimore County.
Grilled corn….YUM! For our grilled corn we also got Parmesan Cheese.(Will be posting the recipe for the corn and potatoes soon) All we needed now was the wine. Graul’s Ruxton also has their own wine shop with knowledgeable staff to help you pick out what will pair wonderfully with what you are eating. They suggested Espelt Garnacha Old Vines.
Once home we put a little Sea Salt on the New York Strips, and started the grill. While the grill was heating up I mixed together about 1/4 C of the Garlic Onion Jam with 1/2 C of the Espelt Garnacha Old Vines, and 1/2 tsp of Sriracha. You want the consistency to allow for easy spreading with a brush. Also we put some of the Espelt Garnacha in a spray bottle for spritzing the New York Strips with while on the grill.
The spritzing not only adds flavor by caramelizing on the New York Strip but it also helps pull the smoking flavor from the grill into the meat. We sprayed it about 6 times or so.
Once the New York Strips are seared on both side start brushing on the Garlic Onion Wine glaze. Finish cooking till steaks have reached desired temperature. Let rest for a few minutes once you have pulled it off the heat and finally enjoy!
