Balsamic Pepper Brochettes

Juicy and flavorful aged rib eye steaks are even better with pepper and balsamico di modena! Try this over parmigiano polenta.

3 Rib Eye Steaks
2 Vidalia or Sweet Onions
extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt flakes (fleur de sel)
Cracked pepper medley
Balsamico di Modena

Pre-heat grill. Cut steak into 1.5 inch cubes, taking care to remove large fat wedge if present. Drizzle cubes with olive oil and toss to coat lightly - just enough to coat in a thin layer. Sprinkle with sea salt and a generous amount of cracked pepper medley and toss to distribute evenly.

Cut sweet onions into 1-1.5 inch wedges, one to two layers thick. Thread meat and onion alternately onto skewers.

Clean cooking grate and brush or mist with olive oil. Grill brochettes over hot coals to brown, taking care to remove at rare to medium rare. Cover with a clean towel and rest for 5 minutes, serve drizzled with Balsamico di Modena, a sweet balsamic glaze from Modena Italy and serve. Great over soft or grilled parmigiano polenta

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
