I may be wrong but I am fairly certain that Eric married me because I know how to cook steak. If you are looking to win the love of your life over with a yummy meal this Valentine’s Day EC Williams Livestock has got you!
First, you are going to want to start with the best of the best, Tenderloin Steak, also known as Filet Mignon. EC Williams Livestock Tenderloin Steaks are from cows that have been raised using regenerative agriculture practices and are grass fed and finished. So, it has a beefy, natural flavour. It comes from a muscle that runs along the back of the cow and gets little exercise – the reason it is so tender. The lack of fat in the tenderloin steaks means a lack of flavour, but the lack of flavour is made up by the buttery tenderness. And a great recipe!
TENDERLOIN STEAKS IN GARLIC BUTTER
Ensure that your steak is defrosted and has been brought to room temperature. Set it on the counter 30-60 minutes before cooking.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Season each side of the steaks with salt and pepper.
Combine 1 tsp each of garlic, rosemary, and thyme with 3 tbsp of butter. Heat garlic butter in a cast iron or another oven safe frying pan. Careful not to burn your butter! Once it has melted add your steaks to the pan. The butter should be hot enough that the steaks sizzle when they hit the pan. Sear each side for 2-3 minutes while spooning the melted butter over the top of the steaks. Then place the whole pan into your hot oven. Cook for 10 minutes. Then let the steaks rest in the pan for 5 minutes before slicing.
To go alongside your steaks I recommend some yummy sides – perhaps a stuffed potato and a vegetable. To save time I use Jenny’s Delectables Gourmet Stuffed Potatoes and I like to grab a bag of fresh veggies from Shirley’s Greenhouse. Of course, a delicious meal could not be complete without dessert. When I don’t have time to bake, I stop at Traditional Sweet Shop in Carstairs for a treat.
To make this romantic Valentine’s Day even easier we partnered with Jenny’s Delectables, The Traditional Sweet Shop, and Sweet Williams Co. to create the Falling For You Bundle. This Bundle includes 2 EC Williams Livestock Tenderloin Steaks, 2 Traditional Gourmet Stuffed Potatoes from Jenny’s Delectables, 2 of Traditional Sweet Shop’s Mini Chocolate Heart Cakes, and a small rose bouquet from the lovely Sweet Williams Co.
