This recipe is proof that with just a few simple ingredients you can prepare a steak dinner your friends and family will rave about. Balsamic vinegar and orange pair beautifully and reduce to a delicious, tangy, barely sweet, gluten-free glaze. Serve with Garlic, Herb & Bacon Mashed Potatoes on page 108 to round out the meal and soak up every bit of glaze.
 
1 1/2 pounds (680 g) ribeye steak
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup (120 ml) balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup (40 g) minced shallots
2 tablespoons (30 ml) orange juice
1 tablespoon (14 g) butter
1 teaspoon organic orange zest
 
Yield: 4 servings
 
Preheat grill.
 
Sprinkle the steak evenly with salt and pepper. Grill the steak 4 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Let rest for 5 minutes.
 
Meanwhile, combine the balsamic vinegar, shallots, orange juice, butter, and orange zest in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; boil for 5 to 6 minutes or until reduced to ¼ cup (60 ml).
