Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 35 min
Yields: 2 servings


  • 2 pcs Rib eye steak cuts (1" thick), in room temperature
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 2-3 tbsp butter, for steak
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2-3 tbsp butter, for sauce
  • 1 stock celery, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 cube beef broth, diluted in 1/2 cup water


  1. Wash, pat dry and salt your steak cuts. It's ok to salt them early while waiting for them to reach room temperature.

2. Boil your red wine until reduced in half, set aside.

3. Oil your pan, when it starts to smoke, it is time to put in your steak cuts. Fry for 4 mins each side for medium rare. I did more sice I want my steak well done.

5. When done, cover your steak in aluminum foil to conserve heat.

6. On the same pan, soften your chopped onions

7. Add beef broth and celery, bring to boil.

8. When broth is reduced, add reduced wine. Then add butter until mixture thickens. Salt and pepper can be added to taste.

9. Strain the sauce.

10. Pour on plated steak. Enjoy!
