A special meal for two in less than an hour.
Even if you don’t have a lot of time, you can still make dishes that feel special, yet can be pulled off without a lot of prep. The centerpiece of this bistro-inspired menu is a pepper crusted steak, which cooks in less than 15 minutes thanks to the classic restaurant technique of sear-roasting. It’s rounded out with a simple, refreshing herb salad with radishes, and roasted potatoes. For an impressive finish, individual chocolate-espresso soufflés can be prepared days in advance, frozen, and popped in the oven when you’re ready for dessert.
