Piri Piri Ribeye Dinner

I told you about the early stages of experimenting with Piri Piri Butter. What I didn't tell you is that we tried it on more than just corn. I put some on steak that night too. It was delicious! That is what gave me the idea of making a piri piri steak dinner. Originally I was going to cook filet, but then I saw the prices I bought ribeye instead. Don't get me wrong I will try this on filet in the future. This combo of Piri Piri flavors, steak, asparagus and sweet potato is a great meal. I loved everything! I love the spice the Piri Piri Butter adds to the steak. The interesting thing is that the first bite it the best bite. That is when the Piri Piri flavors are most prominent. Contrary to other dishes where the heat continues to build. This butter just enhances the smokey, juicy grilled steak with spice. The asparagus and sweet potato are perfect accompaniments. I love the roasted bits on the asparagus and the caramelized grill marks on the sweet potatoes. So good! Definitely a fine plate of food to serve over and over again.
