Well the hubby and I decided to eat in for the rest of the month. So that mean Valentine’s Day Dinner is at home this year. Below is one of my favorites I enjoy making for special occasions. I rarely make beef tenderloin steaks and that’s a shame. So tender when cooked to perfection. Wrapping it in bacon just heightens the flavor.
I don’t cook these steaks often because the cut seems so cost prohibitive (organic, grass-fed and no hormones and antibiotic cuts go for $28/pound). Ugh! Talk about short-sighted. Last year for Valentine’s we went to a nice steakhouse and spent $300 (steaks, sides, shared dessert, bottle of wine and tip). $300!!!! The whole dinner in the video below set us back a whopping $30. Of course I didn’t buy wine.
Are you cooking for Valentine’s Day or heading out?
