Sumac Steak with Pomegranate Reduction

Last night I made a delicious dinner with the help of Zach and Patrick (our friend from chi-town who is living with us here in Milwaukee). 

We made Sumac Steak with a Pomegranate Reduction. Sumac is a middle eastern spice. It comes from the dried berry of a plant in the same family as poison oak and ivy. It has a tangy lemony flavor--making it a great rub for meats. If you want the recipe just click here: Sumac Steak.

I served this with homemade parmesan risotto and a salad. The salad was from greens from our garden, grapefruit, avocado and a homemade blood-orange vinaigrette.


  1. okay, my mouth is now watering from reading your post! how delicious! i need to go make dinner now!

    p.s.- happy to have found your blog! nice to meet you!


  2. Thanks! This recipe really is incredible. And the steak with the sumac is very easy. The trick with the recipe is to find some "pomegranate molasses"--it can be found at specialty cooking stores in the middle eastern/indian section. Then you don't have to make your own reduction! You can just use the molasses and add the shallots, butter and steak drippings. Yum! and SO easy!

    Nice to meet you too!
