Here’s a quick under 20minutes meal to prepare at home to make the night a little special this evening.
This will have your partner impressed and gives you a little cooking street cred for this Valentine’s Holiday.
Garlic and Butter Rib Eye Steak
*Rib eye steak
* Salted butter
*Garlic + Ginger
* Lemon pepper, salt, thyme and rosemary.
Make sure the pan is hot before adding the oil, and then reduce the heat to a medium temperature.
Rub your herbs plus the ginger and garlic to your steak. Other alternative herbs can be used.
Use sesame oil and slated butter to fry. These combinations of oils add distinctive flavors to the steak. Alternative oils can be butter or ghee butter.
Tilt the pan away or towards you slightly to gather oil and scoop with a spoon to baste while carefully monitoring it.
Cook for 8-10 minutes on each side and let rest for before plating.
This one is for the steak lovers. Pair this with a side of baked broccoli, green beans, a bed of fragrant rice, or whatever rocks your boat as a main to complete this dish. Red wine or a beer is a suitable wash down.
Cook it to perfection because it is a very sensitive delicacy.
How to check if your steak is done?
Rare: this steak is soft and maintains a dent when pressed.
Medium rare: has a soft springy feel.
Well done: remains firm with no spring.
It is a perfect meal to have for a romantic night. It’s light, but filling. Not only is it packed with the right nutrients, its amazing flavors will leave your mouth watering and have your partner begging for more. Don’t forget to save a little room for whatever desert may be!
