Peppery Steaks With Wine Sauce
This is the second recipe I had tagged for a game I play on Zaar. It was a very good recipe that was easy to prepare and the end result was delicious. I did use a 500g piece of beef fillet instead of the rib eye or sirloin suggested, as I loved this tender cut of meat and it was on special at the store so I could not resist. Both this and the cat fish recipe were by the same chef and both were truly wonderful recipes so I would recommend you trying them both. I am going to get round to posting some more of my own recipes over the next few days as I have few in back log now. To read more reviews on this recipe or to view more photos please click here.

Beef Steak with Avocado Sauce
This is a great recipe for steaks, although a combination I never would have thought of, but everything works so well from the spice rub to the avocado sauce. This is another of my team mates recipes I chose to try for the swap I am in this month and I am so glad I did as we thoroughly enjoyed it. I made ours with two very thick cut steak fillets and served over mixed vegetables with roast potatoes for a truly delicious meal.To read more reviews on this recipe or to view more photos please click here.
