Chef Evan Plymire shares two recipes for date night on the grill!

MINNEAPOLIS — Have you ever considered taking date night to the grill?

P.S. Steak, a modern steakhouse located in the main level of the
historic 510 Groveland building in Minneapolis, is serving up a special seasonal grilled menu for Date Night.

Chef de Cuisine, Evan Plymire, stopped by KARE 11 Saturday to share two recipes you can make for your date at home: Denver Steak and Aligot Potato.

Denver Steak

Steak Seasoning:

  • 2 teaspoons Onion Powder
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons MSG
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons Dehydrated Parsley
  • 2 teaspoons mustard powder

Season steak generously, and grill to desired temperature. Before your steak reaches ten degrees less than your desired temperature, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes (depending on steak size, longer for larger steaks). Return steak to grill and cook for another 2 to 5 minutes (depending on steak size, longer for larger steaks) until steak reaches desired temperature, serve immediately while hot.

  • 4 ounces Butter, softened
  • 3 ounces Heavy Cream
  • 1 ounce milk

To Finish:

  • 2 ounces Gruyere Cheese, Shredded

  1. Place peeled Yukon potatoes in a pot with water and bring to a boil.
  2. Cook potatoes until soft, about 45 minutes to an hour.
  3. Strain water from potatoes and transfer to a food mill (potato ricer) if available, otherwise you can place potatoes in a bowl and mash with a potato masher, fork, or whisk.
