A few days ago we went out to dinner and this is what I ordered. I studied what I thought was in the sauce and came home and made what I thought was like what I tasted at the resturant. I love using different wines. Oh Boy! We both think this taste a lot better and we had a hard time not eating second portion of this great meat. Marinating the steak and cutting it on the diagonal after cooking ensured tenderness. As you see I served it with steamed asparagus and mashed red potatoes to round the meal out. My cousin that I haven't seen for a while is going to visit next week end and guess what I'm going to make. YEP; YOUR RIGHT!
