“This is especially yummy for a romantic dinner for two such as Valentine's Day. Pair it with my Endive Salad With Toasted Nuts and you have a scrumptious meal.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 beef loin steaks or 2 rib eye steaks, 1 inch thick
  • 12 cup red wine, such as cabernet sauvignon or 12 cup beaujolais wine
  • 2 tablespoons salsa, mild to hot as you prefer


  1. Set a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat.
  2. When hot, add butter and tilt pan to coat.
  3. When bubbly, add steaks (cold from refrigerator) and fry until well browned, about 3 minutes per side for rare or 5 minutes per side for medium steaks.
