Feta-crusted beef with tomato sauce and quinoa



Since Valentine’s day was on Tuesday, we decided to celebrate on Saturday night. So I looked on internet a recipe full of strong flavours while my husband took care of the wine.
The menu was:
Cheese truffles
Feta-crusted beef with tomato sauce and quinoa
Chocolate souffle with melted heart

I used beef instead of the lamb and instead of the breadcrumbs I used almond flour. You can have plain steamed rice or quinoa with this dish.

This dish was so delicious. Once the beef began cooking in the oven, the whole house was filled with a wonderful aroma, that we couldn’t wait to taste it. This dish is very simple to make and the results will make you conquer that special person you are sharing it wth.

My husband bought this wonderful wine “Barolo” , one of Italy’s best wine, that really was great for all the combination of flavours, like the feta and the thyme.
