This next feature is a new one to the Thirty Days of Food ingredient list and it is a favorite of mine, WINE! I was excited when Katy Jane from Farmhouse Vineyards contacted me to be featured. Of COURSE I could fit wine into the list! Honestly, y’all, Katy Jane is one of the kindest and most beautiful souls out there. The Seaton’s and the Furgeson’s makeup Farmhouse Vineyards. They are two multi-generational farm families that farm together and of course manage vineyards in West Texas. AND they produce a wine called #Housewife, perfection! I’ve decided to take one of my favorite ingredients, wine, and make this delectable red wine sauce. Honestly, just do it.
Who farms with you and what are their roles?
We’re comprised of a sister brother duo and their spouses.
What has been the hardest part of farming for you?
What has been the most satisfying part of farming for you?
Seeing consumers enjoy our fruit as wine. People don’t FB “I’m wearing my favorite cotton tee.”
What crops (or animals) do you grow and why?
Cotton, peanuts, winegrapes
What is your favorite thing to do with the food crop you grow?
Open a bottle and pour for people.
This red wine sauce is so simple and so delicious, you’ll want to just spoon it into your mouth. It is MOST fantastic on steak or any kind of beef, but it would also be yummy with some grilled pork chops too.
- 2 cups red wine
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch + some water
- In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients except the cornstarch over medium high heat. Let reduce for 20-25 minutes. Once reduced, thicken by adding 1-2 teaspoons of cornstarch mixed in some water. Whisk in to thicken. Remove from heat and serve immediately over steak or pork chops. Enjoy!
