Date Night Dinner

Will and I love to have a good stay-in date night. We treat ourselves to a good home cooked meal followed by Netflix! Our most common dinner is Steak and Baked Potato with some sort of green side. PSA: You don’t have to have a grill to make the steaks. You can never go wrong with a good Skillet Steak either.

Y’all always love a good meal idea, so I wanted to share our stay-in Date Night Dinner. it is pure savory goodness without the restaurant price-tag… Enjoy!

instructions:

Date Night Dinner
  1. First begin with your Baked Potatoes, because they will take the longest. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees. Wash and clean them with paper towel. Lightly coat each Potato in Olive Oil. Bake on a greased sheet pan for 45 minutes.
  2. Next, you will begin prepping your Steak. Place Steaks on flat platter or board, and season generously on each side. Let Steaks sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes. 
  3. While Baked Potatoes cook and Steak sits, begin prepping your Mushrooms and Asparagus. Wash all of the  Mushroom and Asparagus pieces, then pat dry. You will begin trimming and cutting Asparagus. Remove the hard ends of the Asparagus (they are a white/green color). Then you will cut the remaining Asparagus stalk into thirds. Next, bring Olive Oil to medium heat in skillet. Add in Mushrooms, Asparagus cuts, Garlic Salt and Pepper. Sauté until soft, and reduce heat to low.
  4. Once your  Mushroom and Asparagus mixture has softened, begin grilling your Steaks. Place Steaks on a 600 degree grill- sear for 2 minutes per side. Then, reduce heat to 350 degrees by closing vents. Let Steaks continue to cook for 4-6 minutes depending upon thickness or desired temperature.
    Remove from grill and let sit on fresh platter for 2 minutes covered with foil.
    (We use a Big Green Egg Grill)
  5. While Steaks sit, remove Baked Potatoes from oven, you can tell if they are finished by poking holes with fork. 
  6. Begin Plating your food. Top Steak with Blue Cheese Crumbles. Cut open Baked Potato and dress with toppings. Add Mushroom and Asparagus mixture to plate. Serve Warm and Enjoy!
