Here is a meal that is super simple and super delicious! I cook this most nights when I'm tired and hungry. This is a great option for my college amigos.
So... I may have become too invested in this recipe before really thinking it through. And by that I mean I did not comprehend how expensive a nice cut of ribeye was until standing in front of the meat counter with the butcher glaring down at me. Nonetheless, I cooked it anyways!
