Splurge Steak Dinner For Two, With Nugget Potatoes And A Great Salad


Steak is so expensive these days but every once in a while you should splurge and enjoy this simple and delicious dinner.
Strip sirloin steak is yummy, yummy.  It is super tender and well-marbled, ensuring great flavor.



2 small strip sirloin steaks, about eight ounces each.
12 small nugget potatoes.
12 cherry tomatoes, cut into half.
2 cloves of garlic, minced.
2 tablespoons of really good olive oil.
½ cup of good red wine.
½ cup of beef stock.
4 small radishes.
3 small cucumbers.
2 stalks of green onions, sliced.


The Steak

Heat your frying on high heat for two minutes. Then add the steaks and fry them on medium-high heat without any oil. Frying time depends on how you like your steak. Rare – one minute each side, 4 to five minutes for medium, and 5 to 6 minutes for well done.
Once cooked, take steaks and put them on a platter, cover with foil.


The Sauce

Put the olive oil into the same pan in which you cooked the steaks.
Add the garlic and cook at medium heat for one minute. Be careful not to burn the garlic, otherwise, it will taste bitter.
Then add the beef stock and wine.
Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer until the sauce has become thick and gooey.
Add the steaks into the pan and make sure the steaks are covered with the sauce.


The Potatoes

Parboil the potatoes.
Once done, put potatoes on a baking pan and drizzle one tablespoon of olive on the potatoes, and roll them around to make sure they all are covered in the olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Put potatoes in a 375-degree preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes. If your potatoes are larger than the usual small size, cook the potatoes longer.


The Salad

Take the cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, green onions, and radishes and put them into a small bowl.
Add one tablespoon of olive oil. Add salt and pepper.
Mix well.



If you use really good olive oil the salad will taste sensational without any vinegar or lemon juice.
Presto, you are ready to plate.
Easy and delish.
