Fresh Cilantro and Pepper Dipping Sauce

Leigh Culver


Just found this recipe in People magazine and it's called Rib Eye Bites. I made a couple of minor changes to it by adding the lime juice and using a red bell pepper instead of a green one. It's so good. I cannot wait for out steak to be ready!
