Parmesan Crusted Steaks


Last year for Valentine’s Day my husband and I stayed home and I cooked us up one heck of a dinner. The main dish? Parmesan Crusted Steaks. Ribeye – to be exact. Although, and steak would work for this romantic entrée. Since my backyard is currently buried under 4 feet of snow, the thought of grilling these steaks is nonexistent.
