Time to break out some new recipes!
Ribeye steaks are my favorite so this particular recipe speaks to me — LOUDLY.
Bone-in ribeye has that extra punch of flavor I crave, but if you’re – say – a filet mignon fan – this recipe could easily be used on that or any cut you like.
The blueberry port sauce is so different and refreshing for eating outdoors and enjoying the scenery.
So get out and enjoy!
