    brew's Note:

    Fabulous steak recipe that my father copied from a local Italian place that is an institution in St. Louis. This recipe is rich, but I promise you will love it. Cook time does not include steak cooking, as everyone likes theirs (at least in our family) to varying degrees of doneness. If you live in St. Louis and like provelone cheese, use that here. For the wine, use a fuller one like Chardonnay; Pinot Grisio and Blancos tend to be too light.

      I loved the creamy cheese mixed with the tangy wine sauce! This is a very easy, but "fancy" dish. My BF didn't care for the sauce (took off 1 star), but that's not surprising since he doesn't like the same "tang" that I do. Served with mashed potatoes - which I topped with more wine sauce!

      I can not tell you how many times I have tried to duplicate this recipe - it was just like being back home. Great!

      If you're a true St. Louisan, you'll use Provel cheese. That oddity that exists only in St. Louis.
