Still trying to sort out what to do on Valentine’s Day? The typical go-to for many is either a nice dinner out at a fancy restaurant or an assortment of flowers or roses. However, with lockdown measures still in place for the Greater Toronto Area and florists forecasting major shortages of flowers and roses this year, there’s not much opportunity in the typical celebration. Not to worry, GOCART.CITY has got you covered. We’ve launched some delicious Valentine’s Day meal bundles and gift baskets that will help you make Valentine’s Day special for whoever you’re celebrating with - your loved one, a BFF, family member, or even your furry friend.
Enjoy this delicious 3 course steak dinner recipe for two!
The meal kit will include: Caesar salad kit, 2-pack AAA tenderloin steak (8 or 12 oz) Asparagus, Baby potatoes, Montreal steak spice, Strawberries and chocolate.
Follow these instructions to become a valentine’s day chef:
Spread the little potato company potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper in a single layer and bake for 30 minutes flipping once halfway through until tender.
When flipping the potatoes halfway through, add asparagus in tin foil, season with salt & garlic powder, and bake on the same pan as potatoes for 10 minutes.
Heat a heavy pan (preferably cast iron or stainless steel) over medium-high heat. Add the oil to the pan and heat until it begins to shimmer and move fluidly around the pan.
Carefully set the steaks in the pan, releasing them away from you so the oil doesn’t splatter in your direction. The oil should sizzle.
Flip the steaks when they release easily and the bottom is a deep-brown color, about 3 minutes. Continue to cook the steaks for another 3 to 4 minutes on the second side for rare to medium-rare. (For medium, cook 4 to 5 minutes on second side; for well-done, cook 5 to 6 minutes on second side).
For dessert: Place chocolate in a pot on medium. Keep stirring until fully melted. Dip strawberries in chocolate. Eat warm, or allow the chocolate to cool off.
