Perhaps you appreciate staying in for something a little more intimate on Valentines Day? We have the perfect dinner for you to prepare. You just need to hit the grocery for a few items (listed below). I'd recommend also picking up some mixed greens for a salad and chocolates for a simple dessert. This recipe is guaranteed to impress - especially if you serve it with our 2009 ISOSCELES.
FOR SEARED KOBE BEEF
Kobe beef or New York dry aged beef
1/2 bunch of chives, chopped
Sear Kobe beef to medium rare (125 internal temperature). Can alternatively use a flat iron.
FOR YORKSHIRE PUDDING
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk
3 large eggs
Pinch of nutmeg
4 tablespoons canola oil
Preheat oven to 400. Put eggs, milk, salt, and nutmeg in blender. Mix on medium high speed. When combined, slowly pour in flour. Let mix until thoroughly combined. Let batter rest for 20 minutes. Pour a thin layer of oil in a mini muffin tin, and place in oven until extremely hot. Pour in the pudding mixture (one quarter to halfway up), and bake in the hot oven for 15-20 minutes and until golden brown.
FOR HORSERADISH CREAM
2 tablespoons horseradish
1/4 teaspoon black ground pepper
1/2 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
