1.) In a resealable plastic bag mix 2 cups of red wine, 1 cup cherries, 2 tablespoons olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix together until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Place round steaks into the bag, covering them entirely with the marinade. Seal and place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours.

2.) In a skillet over medium-high heat, add leeks and mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are browned, about 7 – 8 minutes.

3.) Turn heat to high and add 1 cup of red wine, scraping up bits in pan with wooden spoon. Allow wine to boil for 2 minutes and then, keeping the heat on high, add the mushrooms and the cherries. Cook for about 4 – 5 minutes over high heat.

4.) Add the remaining marinade to the pan and bring back up to a boil for about 2 minutes. Then return heat to medium and allow to reduce for 45 minutes to one hour.

5.) About 20 minutes before the marinade is done reducing, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil a skillet. When hot, sear steaks on each side for 2 – 3 minutes, just until browned. Then add to the sauce mixture and allow to cook until desired doneness, about 10 minutes for medium.

6.) When steaks are finished, remove from sauce and allow to rest for 5 minutes. When ready to serve, spoon cherry sauce over steaks.

7.) Serve and enjoy!
