    For the Sweetheart Steak: Draw a large heart on a piece of cardboard, shaped to the size of meat selected. Cut out cardboard heart shape, then trim meat into heart shape.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (20 oz) boneless strip steak or rib steak, butterflied into heart shape

  • 2

    Combine salt, pepper, chocolate and olive oil in a small bowl. Place on top of cut steak.

    • 2 Teaspoon Jacobsen Salt Co. Pure Kosher Sea Salt

    • 2 Teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

    • 2 Tablespoon finely chopped raw dark chocolate

    • 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil

    Cut raw lobster tail, remove meat and chop.

    In a separate medium bowl, combine the lemon juice, lime juice and jalapeño.

    Ingredients

    • 1 Cup fresh squeezed lemon juice

    • 1/3 Cup fresh squeezed lime juice

    • 1/2 jalapeño, diced

    Toss in the lobster meat; ensure it is completely submerged in the liquid. Let lobster soak for 30 minutes. The citric acid actually cooks the lobster meat.
