This is one of the best pan fried steaks that I've ever made. Perfect since it's raining outside now. The sauce is to die for. I only used a total of 4 oz of blue cheese but it was perfect for me. The sauce thickened up nicely. My steak was a perfect medium rare after 9 minutes. DH is going to hate that he missed this one. Thanks jonesies for a real keeper.

My husband and I love Rib eye steaks and this recipe was excellent. I cooked them in an iron skillet to sear and finished them off in the oven till med rare. The sauce was wonderful! I added a little flour to thicken. Thank you for posting!
