Very good flavor! I couldn't get the rub to completely stay on the steaks when I turned them in the skillet, but I had made extra, so I added more once they were in the baking pan. The sauce really complemented the flavors.

I made this for my husband's birthday dinner and it was perfect! Delicious, tender, great combination of flavors! I did not have any red wine so used a good quality dark balsamic vinegar and the gravy was amazing.
