This was delicious! I made this last night for my DH and I. I used two rib eye steaks about 8-10 oz each. I must admit, I felt a little pampered when I ate this! It is so simple but yet so good. I would definately make this again. The only thing I'd change next time is I'd add maybe just 2 tbsp. of butter to the sauce rather than 4 because I had some sauce leftover and I couldn't use it all. I think we just preferred to use a little less for each serving. But that is a personal prefrence. And this is way too good to waste a drop! Thank's so much for sharing Tricia!! This is definately a keeper and a recipe I would make over and over again! Made for spring PAC 2007.
