Sunday Dinner: Romantic

I’ve been really experimenting with new flavours and dishes lately so I felt the need to bring it back to the basics and cook a nice steak dinner for my boyfriend and myself. I’m a sucker for steak toppings and this Red Wine Mushroom sauce I found on Epicurious sounded like it had all the warm, comforting flavours I was craving.

This found this recipe under the ‘romantic dinners’ section on the Epicurious App (which is amazing by the way). I made a few modifications (we grilled the steaks rather than pan frying them) and I skipped the portobello mushrooms and squash. I also roasted the veggies in the oven rather than in the pan–I find that it’s less hassle this way and I wasn’t trying to juggle a million things. Simple garlic mashed potatoes were the last thing to add to the menu to make it a real meat and potatoes meal.

I lit some candles, poured us each a glass of cab and we had a romantic evening… of watching the Kardashians (I know we suck).
