I have a perfect date night meal for you, and it is a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a steak dinner at a restaurant. It's no secret that we love red meat in our house and this rib-eye was enough to feed the two of us, plus leftovers for steak and eggs the next morning!
And the stout sauce...amazing! I could have slurped it right out of the pan. I didn't, instead, I just drank the extra stout that I picked up at the store. The original recipes suggests Guinness, but I went with a Young's Chocolate Stout. A great beer to sip on while cooking and it worked well in the sauce. You really can't go wrong with any creamy stout.
If you don't have a cast iron skillet, I recommend the pre-seasoned Lodge brand, they're very reasonable and you'll get a lot of use out of a cast iron pan.
Head on over to Leite's Culinary for the recipe. Call us weak, but we just made one steak and it was plenty for both of us.
