WATCH: Prep the Perfect Steak Dinner for Valentine’s Day

Avoid the crowds and the traffic-we have an easy peasy menu that's easy to prep at home.


Steak just the way you like it, a light pasta to complement your meat, and dessert that doesn’t take too much time to prep—we have your Valentine’s Day dinner menu all planned out.




1-inch cut Porterhouse steak, about 600 grams

2 tablespoons oil

2-3 cloves garlic, peeled

sprigs of fresh rosemary

2 tablespoons butter

Salt and pepper, to taste


1 Prep the steak: pat the meat dry with paper towel. Generously season the meat with salt and pepper.


2 Heat pan over high heat and add oil.


3 Add the meat only when oil is hot enough and almost reaches smoking point. Sear for 2-2.5 minutes per side (medium rare), depending on the doneness desired.


4 Once you have flipped the meat, add butter, garlic and rosemary. Tilt pan and start basting the steak until done. Take out from heat.


5 Let the meat rest for another 5-7 minutes before slicing.
