READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by lazyme

The sauce makes these steaks really special. Use rib-eyes or beef tenderloin for a really tender meal. From Good Housekeeping, January 2003.

Another very delicious recipe from lazyme! The recipe was super-easy, the steak was tender, the sauce was flavourful but not overpowering. I was really happy with the results. I cooked my steak for 4 minutes a side because I like blue rare! Made for Went to the Market. Thanks lazyme! :)
