1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons dry white wine
Dash of ground red pepper
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1/4 cup water
Cook and stir cheese, garlic, wine and red pepper over low heat, stirring frequently, until cheese melted; keep warm.
Heat butter in 12-inch skillet until hot. Cook beef steaks over medium-high heat, turning once, until medium doneness, about 5 minutes on each side.
Sprinkle with pepper. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Add water to skillet. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly to loosen browned bits; boil 2 minutes.
