This cowgirl cut steak recipe from Lydia Mondavi starts with our Napa Valley inspired rub with notes of red wine, fennel and garlic before getting smoked and reverse-seared to perfection. Substitute any rub of your choice, but we highly recommend trying out the limited Winemakers Rub by Rob & Lydia Mondavi for ultimate flavor.
