Here’s a luxury dinner to make for a special occasion: a thick ribeye steak topped with mushrooms and onions caramelized and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It’s definitely a very meat-heavy recipe, but there’s nothing wrong with that some of the time, and you can always add more vegetables on the side to get a little extra plant matter into the meal.
If you’re cooking to impress someone, this would definitely be a strong choice of recipe, not just because it’s steak, but also because it’s pretty quick and you won’t have to leave your guest(s) hanging while you endlessly fuss over the stove.
Try it with a salad or go for a slightly more assertive vegetable: what about a bright plate of zucchini gremolata to add color, celeriac mash as an interesting twist on mashed potatoes, or garlicky green beans?
