Succulent Steak for Valentine’s Day

Looking for a treat to woo a special someone this Valentine’s Day?  Why not treat him or her to a night in with some exceptional home-cooking?

Here’s a little menu we’ve put together for you, which we’re certain will do the job.

Main Course

Rump steak and chunky chips, served with whole baked buttered-mushrooms, baked tomatoes, garden peas and crispy bacon roses.


Valentine's Day Steak and ChipsValentines2













  • 2 Rump Steaks
  • 1 Packet of streaky bacon
  • Good quality oven chips
  • 2 Portobello mushrooms
  • 2 Beef tomatoes
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 1 tube of cocktail sticks
  • A chilled bottle of Champagne/Prosecco (optional)



Pre heat oven to 200oC/400oF/Gas mark 6.

Remove your rump steaks from the fridge and allow to sit at room temperature while you’re preparing the rest of your meal.  Season with pepper and oil if you wish.

Prepare the bacon roses.  Pre-soak the cocktail sticks in water to prevent them from burning.  Roll up each piece of bacon (see picture below), and secure with soaked cocktail sticks.

Bacon roses

Cut the tomatoes in half and place alongside the upturned mushrooms on a separate baking tray.  Brush the mushrooms with some melted butter if you wish.  Season your vegetables.

Place the desired amount of chips on a separate baking tray and place on the top shelf of the oven.

Place the trays with the bacon roses, tomatoes and mushrooms on the middle shelf.

Bake for 40 Minutes.

15 minutes before your vegetables and chips are due to finish baking, heat a frying-pan to a moderate-high heat.  Salt your steaks and place them into the pan.  Oil the steak and not the pan.  We like our steak rare, which will take almost moments on each side, but cook for as long as you and your date prefer.

Remove from the pan, allow a minute or two to rest on your plate while you serve the rest of the meal.

Serve over a candlelit table, with a large glass of Champagne and an IOU voucher for a treat of his or her choice.
