It’s harvest and storage time for raspberries in Niagara County, but don’t put these tasty bites of nature away so soon! Besides using them in morning cereal, on top of ice cream or to bake with in desserts, these tiny sweet treats can be made into a delicious marinade for steak, yes steak.
If you want to pick your own raspberries, ask City Girl Country where to find a nearby farm.
Raspberry Almond Steak
½ cup fresh raspberries
Sirloin boneless steak

Filippo Berio Olive Oil
Marinate the steak in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper
Combine the almonds and raspberries in a mini-chop. Puree for a few seconds (until smooth with a little crunch)
Sprinkle with salt to bring out the sweet taste
Meanwhile, heat some olive oil in a small skillet on medium heat
Coat the steak with the raspberry/almond mixture
Grill the steak to your liking. When you are ready to flip to the other side, make sure to coat the bottom with the remaining mixture, straight from the mini-chop
