Beefy affair!

A fortnight ago, we decided to go to Chili’s to have one of Mr. A’s favorite dishes- Classic rib-eyed steak, made even more exciting by their choice of creamy pepper sauce. Rib eye has a wonderful, rich flavour and is very tender with pockets of fat all over the steak.

Seeing him devour his meal, I decided to try this recipe at home.

Preparing steak is one of the simplest tasks. All you need is some beef steak with salt and pepper seasoning. Traditionally, pepper sauce is made using beef stock and wine, but  I substituted this with chicken stock.
