Prime Rib with Red Wine and Blackberry Sauce

I've never really been a fan of steaks or roasts, so I was a little disappointed when I found out that prime rib was going to be the main dish for Easter dinner. We took some leftovers home and if I was going to have to eat it, I knew I'd have to have some kind of sauce to make it more appealing. I started looking for different recipes and found a few for a Red Wine and Blackberry sauce. After making some modifications, it was DELICIOUS!! This would really go well with any kind of steak. I didn't make the prime rib, so there is no recipe for that.


Ingredients (Adapted from Southern Food)
-1 cup dry red wine
-1/2 cup finely chopped onion
-2 tablespoons butter
-1/2 cup fresh or frozen blackberries (I used fresh)
-1 1/2 tablespoons flour
-2 teaspoons sugar or Slenda
-1/2 teaspoon salt

1.Put blackberries in a food processor or blender and puree. Force the berries through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl, set aside.
2. Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat and add onions, saute about 4 minutes. Add flour and stir to blend, cook another 2 minutes.
3. In a separate pot, heat wine of medium-high heat. Add to onion mixture.
4. Add the blackberry sauce to red wine mixture and cook 3 minutes. Add sugar and salt. Simmer to thinken.
5.Pour sauce through another strainer into bowl to strain onions. Serve sauce over red meat of choice.

  2. Ok, so now that I've checked out your cooking blog, I've decided you should be the one to start hosting a new supper club. I don't really care who else you invite as long as you do the cooking. I'll bring salad, app, or maybe desert. Could be fun. Haha.
