Steak Night, Date Night

The Sassy Barn

Austin and I have always been more of the “let’s stay in and cook together” type couple rather than go out to dinner for Valentine’s Day or any date night really. Some times we go out but I love cooking and it’s something that we enjoy together!

I’m sharing an easy way to make steaks at home that are juicy and tender and don’t require a grill!

Let’s get started!


    2 steaks (your choice of cut, we like ribeyes)
    2 Tbsp butter
    2 sprigs of rosemary
    Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Lay your steaks on a cutting board and season on both sides with salt & pepper. Let the steaks sit out and warm up as this is key for cooking them! I usually let mine sit out for 15 minutes.
  2. While the steaks are sitting out, place your butter in either a regular pan or cast iron…

The Second Recipe of a personal Greek Month.

recipe, greek, omelette, goat cheese, olives, spinach, dill, breakfastMany ingredients. Goat cheese, dill, scallions, olives, lamb. Missing from photo: eggs, olive oil, spinach, ground pepper, oregano.

You can eat this by itself, or have a side of toasted pita and/or Greek salad.  See the previous recipe for the latter.

For vegetarian, simply nix the lamb.  Just as tasty, and I added the lamb in anyway as a last minute decision.  Normally, I wouldn’t do this either.  I had the lamb here – it’s not something I’d run out to buy just for an omelet!

I prefer fresh spinach, which you would just wilt.  However, nothing says you can’t use frozen – simply thaw it and squeeze out as much water as you can prior to cooking.
