Recipe by Rita~
Perfectly cooked steaks, nicely seasoned with a rich sweet and slightly spicy glaze. The rib eyes should be room temperature so bring meat out of the refrigerator 1 hour before searing. Use tongs so not to puncture the meat. This serves 12 normal adults. 1/4 pound per adult. BUT if like my Husband he'll eat the whole steak himself. I just don't know how he does it! Leftovers are nice over a bed of greens and a blue cheese dressing.

- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon blackening seasoning
