ROMANTIC STEAK DINNER FOR TWO UNDER $30

by Utokia Langley

Nothing says romantic like rib eye steak!  Some of us (like me), cannot afford to go out for rib eye steak as often as we would like.  This recipe gives you the same great taste, for a fraction of the cost AND this comes with the “I cooked it just for you baby” theme!  I’ve even made it for my children but only for special occasions!  I then partnered the juicy rib eye steak with sauteed spinach and butter garlic rice.  I mean really what is a good steak without great sides to compliment it!  I know rib eye steak can be expensive, I wait until it goes on sale to cook this meal!  When I did the video for this recipe I was able to get two rib eye steaks for about $14 – $15.  So keep a keen eye out for those sales, you’d be surprised how often it will be on sale!  NOW, let’s talk about the FLAVOR in this recipe – well maybe NOT, it is soooooooo freakin frat good that I’ll let it speak for itself!  Hope you enjoy this steak dinner for two as much as my family and I have.  Please do not forget to LIKE my FB FAN (click here) page on my HOME PAGE (click here) and SUBSCRIBE (click here) to my blog to receive these fantastic recipes via email.  AND let us not forget about TWITTER (click here) To view a video demonstration of this recipe Click Here!

Love this! So glad that lunch is only an hour away. I’m sure that it will be nothing like this, but seeing it made me hungry. I’ll have to eat my turkey sandwich and make believe.
