If you are looking for an easy Valentine's dinner for two, look no further! This delicious steak dinner comes from Martha Stewart, and I love the simplicity of this meal! The recipe is easy and straightforward, leaving you plenty of time to enjoy that special person in your life. I also included a recommendation for a wine pairing in the tips section that makes this delicious meal shine. I really encourage you to try this recipe, because it truly is a winner.
Either the day before or the morning that you prepare the steak, I suggest that you rub the steak (or steaks if you double the recipe) generously with Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Use up to 1 teaspoon Kosher salt per pound and about a 1/2 teaspoon black pepper per pound. Place the salt and pepper rubbed steak on a rack, and place the rack on a cookie sheet or other large pan. Put in refrigerator, about 6 to 24 hours, without covering it. Let it sit one hour at room temperature...
This is my take on a French vinaigrette. It is really easy to make, and tastes really good too! Making salad dressing can be a good option if you want something unique that will impress both guests and family alike. Buying salad dressing from the store is not a horrible thing, but with this dressing one can pick and choose how much of one ingredient to use. It is especially helpful if there is a picky eater in the family, or someone with sensitive taste buds as I can substitute ingredients if need be or add less of an ingredient that might be too strong.
This classic French Vinaigrette is what works best for our family. I like to experiment with different salad dressings, and I find that this combination of ingredients works best for this dressing. These simple ingredients when put together make something extraordinary!
