12 Days and 12 Ways Day 10: Chicago Steakhouse Sandwich

By Alycia McClure on December 23, 2015

You guy’s this recipe is something right out of one of those swanky downtown steakhouses with leather club chairs and a scotch bar in the windy city. It just makes you feel like your dinning in style looking at it. PERFECTION. From using a well marbled ribeye to the specialty dressing it just screams elegance. Even if you don’t like blue cheese it is a perfect complement to this sandwich, just try it this one time, you might be hooked! Impress your guests this Christmas with this one. - Pro Tip – This would also be a great way to use up any prime rib leftovers, but let’s be serious… that never happens.


·         1 20oz Ribeye (we used two smaller ones because it’s what we had)
