Still Wonderful

Although this dish was created last month, there has been a lot going on lately, so it had to wait it's turn.

A steak is Sweetie's idea of good eating. It's not exactly healthy, but prepared this way it's wonderful. Using another of those cute bottles of POM Wonderful pomegranate juice, I created a marinade for the steak. It was delicious.

The rosemary and garlic went really well with the pomegranate juice and I think the juice kept the steak moist and juicy. There are healthier ways to enjoy this great juice, but if you are a meat and potatoes kinda person...try this.

Here's what it looks like after it's been marinated. The marinade begins cooking the meat a bit.

Pomegranate Rosemary and Garlic Marinated Steak

enough for steak for 3-4 people

8 oz. POM Wonderful pomegranate juice
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped roughly
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Place the marinade ingredients in a gallon size zipper lock plastic bag. Shake well to mix. Lay the plastic bag in a large baking pan, carefully un-zip and place the steaks in one layer in the marinade. Close plastic bag. Let marinate at room temperature for an hour, then turn the bag over and let the other side marinate for an hour.

Remove steaks from the marinade and discard the marinade. Grill the steaks to the degree of pinkness you desire. Serve at once.


  1. My guy would love that one too.
    Yes, I'm sure the pomegranate juice would be the perfect marinade for this.

  2. I wonder if Pom would be too strong to do that with fish? I don't at ALL know from marinading something like fish with such a slight flavor with something that could be so sweet and strong -- but I know that it cooks easily with lemon juice and stuff. Would be interesting to try it... maybe. ;)

  3. Tanna, It does seem that guys like steak...it's the hunter thing I guess.

    Tanita, Not sure about POM with fish. Perhaps with something like halibut and only 1 part POM to 3 parts lemon juice and lots of garlic? It does have some sweetness and fruitiness. Salmon might work, too.

  4. Elle, that header lifts my spirit and is so warm and inviting.

  5. My hubby is also a steak guy. He'll love this.
