HAWAIIAN STYLE RIB EYE STEAKS

For a special occasion, I recommend making this steak. Romance the crap out of your partner with this meal. If not, make it for yourself and fall in love with yourself again. Or just make it and eat it. It’s really good!

The rib eyes!

Cook the marinade in a small sauce pan and marinate the rib eyes for a good 24 hours.

Sear the rib eyes in a nice cast iron and then finish in the oven.
