Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a juicy, perfectly cooked steak!
Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze
This is a quick but elegant meal that is perfect for two. All you need to do is sear beef tenderloin filets in a hot skillet, and then cook them with red wine and balsamic vinegar (we recommend serving with steamed asparagus and baby red potatoes). This recipe makes serving an impressive meal so easy it’s ridiculous!
Steak, Spinach & Mushroom Crepes
A steak dinner doesn’t have to include a 200 gram chunk of sirloin. Keep it elegant and continental with this French recipe for steak and vegetable crepes with balsamic glaze. Simple but fancy, and you can’t beat the combination of beef and blue cheese!
Gnocchi with Gravy Beef in Red Wine Sauce
The beef in this recipe is cooked until it is absolutely fall-apart tender, which gives this dish unbeatable succulence. For best results (and a relaxed Valentine’s Day), we recommend that you make this recipe the day before – the flavour only gets better.
Grilled New York Steak with Cherry Port Compote
The cherries make this recipe absolutely perfect for Valentine’s Day – and the best part? It is super easy to make, and looks really fancy on the plate. Serve with roast vegetables or your favourite salad and you have a meal made in heaven.
Seared Beef and Papaya Salad with Tamarind Soy Dressing
If you want something a little lighter for your Valentine’s meal, this recipe is sure to do the trick. Colourful, delicious, healthy (and sure to leave room for dessert!), this recipe pairs fresh Asian flavours with tender sirloin beef. The sweet dressing and crispy onion topping really tie the whole dish together!
