1 pint of fresh blackberries
1/2 cup of Dickinson’s Blackberry preserves
1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic

Roast steaks in preheated oven for 6 minutes for medium, 160 degrees F.
For sauce, return skillet to heat and deglaze with half of the Merlot by scraping bits from the bottom of skillet. Return to medium-high heat and add remaining Merlot, blackberry perserves, and garlic. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Simmer until mixture is reduced by half, stirring occasionally.
