I absolutely love Steak de Burgo! We don't have it very often because of the cost of tenderloin steaks. I also like to use Delmonico steaks for this. This is an elegant dish which is still quite simple to make!

Simple ingredients come together so nicely, this would impress anyone. Especially your sweetie on Valentine's Day. It's very good and easy! The toppings on this are really what makes this special. The mushrooms and shaved Parmesan cheese is so good but the fresh basil pulls it all together. Delish!
