READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Lorrie in Montreal

This is especially yummy for a romantic dinner for two such as Valentine's Day. Pair it with my Endive Salad With Toasted Nuts and you have a scrumptious meal.

This was pretty good. I think the wine was a little overpowering but overall has a good taste.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 beef loin steaks or 2 rib eye steaks, 1 inch thick

  1. Set a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat.
