Rib-eye steaks with merlot-mushroom melange

“We had these wonderful steaks for our Valentine's Day dinner, along with roasted asparagus and rolls. Very good and very easy to fix. I found this in the Chicago Tribune's 'Dinner Tonight' column. If you can't get fresh wild mushrooms, you can use dried ones soaked in hot water for 30 minutes.”
