Instructions

Dried Cranberry Cheese Spread

  • First, remove the cream cheese from your fridge about an hour or so before starting the appetizer so it can soften.
  • Next, roughly chop the dried cranberries and slice the bread into 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices.
  • Then, in large mixing bowl or food processor, combine the cheese, cranberries, salt, and pepper. Mix all the ingredients together until a smooth creamy spread forms.
  • Last, serve the spread in a bowl with the sliced bread and pair it with one of the white wines listed above. 

Salt Crusted Sirloin with Blue Cheese Pan Sauce

  • First, preheat a cast iron skillet or saute pan over medium heat.
  • Next, trim and clean the steaks. After that, sprinkle the salt and pepper over each side of the side and massage the seasonings into the meat.
  • Then, place the meat in the preheated pan and cook it for seven to nine minutes on each side depending on the desired doneness.
  • Now, remove the steak from the pan and set them aside to rest for a few minutes while you create the sauce.
  • Afterward, turn off the heat from the pan and pour the red wine into the hot skillet to deglaze the pan. Use a spatula or wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pan as the alcohol cooks out.
  • It's time to add the butter, blue cheese, and cream. Stir the sauce constantly until the cheese melts. If the vegetables are done, you can drizzle the sauce over the steaks and serve the meal with one of the red wines mentioned above. In addition, you can sprinkle crumbles of blue cheese on top of the steaks if have extra.

Sauteed Asparagus with White Wine Butter Sauce

  • First, preheat a large saute pan over medium heat.
  • Next, slice off the bottoms of the asparagus as they are inedible. Now, wash the vegetable and dry it off.
  • Then, in a large bowl toss the asparagus with the olive oil and salt.
  • After that, transfer the vegetables to the preheated pan and cook them for five to seven minutes turning occasionally.
  • Now, remove the asparagus from the pan and set them aside.
  • Add the white wine to the hot pan and let it cook for about a minute or so for the alcohol to cook out. Then add the butter and turn off the heat.
  • Last, stir the sauce until the butter melts and then pour it over the cooked asparagus. If the steaks are done, serve the vegetables with the meat.
