Marinated Beef Skirt Steak

"We live by a Three Musketeers philosophy—all for one, one for all," Deneen says. "Our little unit takes priority over everything else." (One caveat: Mom still knows best. When David resisted her suggestion to make a Chardonnay, Marcela won out with a time-tested masterstroke: "I'm your mother, that's why.")

Skirt steak that's been marinated and grilled is hearty, not heavy. The Browns combined the steak and Rice Salad for a final savory course, serving it with their 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon. "Its smoky cassis notes go well with grilled food," Coral says, "but won't overpower it."
