We were not overly impressed with Ruth Chris Steakhouse, but some people swear it’s the best. I think it’s because we have so many places to pick from in Houston and even when we travel I’ve come across better places. Anyway, I had seen this recipe pop up a lot and had to give it a try. It’s really sweet and more of a dessert dish, but it is pretty good. I would make it again just put a little less sugar in it.
