When you’re looking for something special to do with your loved one you can’t beat a home cooked meal. There are so many ways to impress with home cooking, but if you want to create a classic dish to the very best level or you just want something simple that you know your other half will enjoy, then steak is a go-to menu item.
Essential items when you are cooking a good steak, are a good griddle pan or frying pan, a timer, and nice quality piece of meat. Choose rib eye for a real treat, or a cheaper minute steak if you are on a budget.
This video shows you just how easy it is to cook a steak to perfect on a griddle. Notice the griddle pan used here is cast iron – you’ll get a lovely searing mark which adds to the flavour and the presentation of your meal.
Next you’ll need something tasty to accompany your steak. Fondant potatoes are rich, creamy and indulgent. They are super easy to make and have the maximum wow factor for minimal cost and effort. Check out our recipe for easy fondant potatoes below.
