If you are looking for a delicious meal to cook for that special someone, you should consider cooking a beef steak. Steaks can be a romantic dish served with red wine. Set up a few candles and break out the fancy dishes and you can create a night to remember.

Step 1

Finely chop the garlic and grind the ginger. Combine garlic, sherry, teriyaki sauce, ginger and extra virgin olive oil. Blend until smooth.

Step 2

Pour the marinade into a marinating dish and add the onion (finely chopped). Add the steaks and use a spoon to cover with marinade.

Step 3

Cover the marinating dish with a lid or use plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 6 hours.

Step 4

Heat your frying pan and then add the beef steaks. Spoon some marinade on top.

Step 5

Cook for 5-8 minutes and then flip the beef steaks. Spoon some more marinade on top and cook another 5-8 minutes.

Step 6

Slice the beef steak open to ensure it's cooked to your satisfaction. For well-done steaks, cook an additional 5-8 minutes.

Step 7

Serve hot.

Tips

  • Serve with some asparagus and potatoes. Make a salad to start off the dinner. For better flavor, marinate the beef steaks overnight.
