Waste of Wine

This recipe did not wow me. It was not overly flavorful. I think I would rather have had the glass of wine rather than using it to marinate the steak! Or use the wine for a reduction. It did turn the steak an interesting purple color that made it difficult to tell how well cooked it was.
Red Wine Marinated Steak
(from the Food Network by Bobby Flay)
4 shallots, coarsely chopped
1 cup dry red wine, such as Cabernet
1/4 cup olive oil
2 pounds flank steak, butterfiled
Salt and pepper
1. Whisk together shallots, wine and olive oil in a large baking dish. Add the steak and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
2. Heat grill to high.
3. Remove the steak from the marinade and blot with paper towels. Lay on a flat surface, cut side up, and season with salt and pepper. Brush the outside of the steak with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak over high heat until browned all over, 8 to 10 minutes.
