Steak Dinner for Two

Steak Dinner

Is there anything better than a good steak dinner? I don’t think so! But when going to a restaurant, I’ve found that unless you’re willing to spend $60 a plate, you end up disappointed. But it doesn’t have to be that way! You have have a delicious steak at home, sides and all!

Our recipe can be used for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, a celebration, or just a regular dinner. The recipe is meant for two, but if you need to feed four, just double the recipe.

But on any of those occasions, it’s still important that the process is easy. And it is; let’s talk through it.




Steak is actually not that difficult to prepare, as long as you have the correct equipment. I recommend a cast iron skillet, and a reliable meat thermometer.

Season your meat with salt and pepper, and let your oil heat in the pan. You want it to be super duper hot, otherwise you won’t get a good sear. Get that sear on both sides, then finish in the oven. Depending on the thickness of your steak, and the way you like it cooked, it might not be very long. That’s where your thermometer comes in. Cook it to the temperature you like it.

Most important is to let the steak rest. Put a big dollop of Chef Shamy Garlic Butter or Chef Shamy Black Truffle Butter on top as it rest. It will melt and impart delicious flavor.



The Sides

Our sides are mashed potatoes, asparagus, and roasted tomatoes. The mashed potatoes are pretty straightforward. We make sure they’re extra creamy by adding Garlic Butter, sour cream, and milk.



The asparagus and cherry tomatoes are roasted in the oven, again flavored by Garlic Butter.
