Shaun and I debated long and hard on what was going to be made for dinner this week.  We finally agreed that we would both be responsible for one nice meal.  I found this recipe in a cookbook that I received called Bride and Groom Cookbook from Williams Sonoma.  I think you are supposed to cook this meal together hence the title, but I decided to show off and do it myself.
The meat was very tender and cooked perfectly.  The slices of ribeye were plated over mashed potatoes and served with red wine.  The saute pan that I used was my Le Creuset pan.  Shaun better step up his game with his dish because mine was divine.
