Dinner Ideas for a 5-star Homecooked Experience


We cannot deny the fact that good food goes well with a spectacular view in Tagaytay — especially those living within Brittany Corporation or in a house and lot near Nuvali. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions and safety reasons, a whole lot of people would prefer having their food delivered to their homes. With the amount of time we have in our homes, it is inevitable that you may find new hobbies at home or just want to improve your lifestyle while looking for new adventures outside. With your luxury house and lot in Santa Rosa or your luxury home in Laguna, one of the best things you can possibly do is home cooking. There are so many dishes out there that it can make you feel a bit overwhelmed, but don’t worry, here are some quick and easy dinner ideas just for you.

Dinner Ideas: Steak

You may have eaten once or even a thousand times, but with your house and lot near Nuvali or your Luxury home in Santa Rosa, you can easily make this meal for yourself or even for guests every day. What makes this dish amazing is that it is quite quick and simple to cook. In addition to that, it tastes absolutely well and is one of the dinner ideas you should really consider. 

Put around two tablespoons in a pan with your fire on medium-high heat. While that is heating up, you can season your rib-eye steak with salt and pepper which you will sear on both sides for around 2 minutes each. Upon putting your steak in the pan, crush five cloves of garlic, prepare four tablespoons of butter, and fresh thyme. Put those in a minute after you turn your steak over. With the melted butter, base your steak to your preferred doneness. However, just like any good steak, it is important that you let your steak rest for around five minutes before slicing it. 

If you’re a fan of gravy, start off by melting five tablespoons of butter in your saucepan and adding three cloves of crushed garlic in. Remove the garlic when aromatic and mix in two tablespoons of flour. Pour in as much beef stock as you want to your preferred texture while adding Worcestershire sauce, liquid seasoning, and sugar which are also to your preference. You would have more than enough time to make this gravy while letting your steak rest.

After less than thirty minutes you can have your home in Brittany Santa Rosa smelling like a top-notch steak house and you can even pair your meal with the wine of your choice. Maybe you can even impress the world-famous Gordon Ramsay with your home cooking.

Soy Garlic Chicken

One of the work-intensive dinner ideas but still simple enough to cook in under thirty minutes. Cooking this multiple times, you can even prepare the sauce even the night before just to cut down your cooking and prepping time. With this dish, you can have your home within Brittany Corporation or in Brittany Santa Rosa smelling like the streets of South Korea. 

Beginning with the star of the show which is the chicken, with your options being either the chicken wings or the chicken thighs for maximum flavor. Season generously with salt, pepper, and a bit of paprika. Prepare the coating by mixing up ¾ cup of flour with ⅓ cup of cornstarch and don’t forget to add in a teaspoon of salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Coat your bite-sized chicken and deep fry for an evenly cooked chicken.

Now for the supporting role which is the soy garlic sauce. Simply by mixing two tablespoons of soy sauce and water into half a cup of sugar, you already got the base of the sauce. Followed by three cloves of minced garlic, a bit of ginger for a kick, and a teaspoon of cornstarch. Mix all of the ingredients well together in a pan and allow it to simmer until it gets a bit thick. When you reached your desired consistency, you can put in your fried chicken making sure to evenly coat every single piece. To contrast the color and to make it a bit more presentable, you can mix in sesame seeds.

Just like most dishes here in the country, we cannot deny that this will work well with rice. It doesn’t matter if you live in a house and lot near Nuvali or in a luxury home in Santa Rosa, a rice cooker is a necessity for every household. Simply by washing two cups of rice with running water in a colander, put the rice in the rice cooker with three cups of water, and let the machine do its magic. After all of this, you can now invite your friends from Brittany Santa Rosa or even those in luxury homes in Laguna for an amazing Korean dinner.

Honey Garlic Pork Medallions

We step into dinner ideas with a rather daunting name. This is a dish you should really cook in your luxury home from Brittany Corporation to impress friends coming over for dinner. 

Beginning with one of the best cuts of pork which is the pork tenderloin. Preheat a pan with two tablespoons of cooking oil and preheat your oven to two hundred degrees Celsius. While the pan is heating up and the oven, season two tenderloins with salt, pepper, and garlic powder making sure to evenly season all sides. Now place your seasoned pork in the pan and sear all sides for around a minute or until it caramelizes before putting it in the oven for 15 minutes.

Pan-seared pork medallions is a dish you can boast about, but is really simple to make!


While your pork is continuing to cook, you can prepare and cook the sauce in the meantime. Mix two tablespoons of soy sauce and cider vinegar with half a cup of honey — add the usual salt and pepper or even a bit of cayenne to give it a slight kick. Mince three cloves of garlic to put in the sauce then allow the sauce to simmer on low fire and reduce a bit. After the pork finishes in the oven, let it rest before slicing the pork and pouring the sauce all over this masterpiece. 

It can be served with either rice or even with mashed potatoes. You can easily make this side dish in your house with Brittany Santa Rosa starting with the potatoes which are sliced into 1-inch cubes. Boil the sliced potatoes for around 10 minutes and add salt to the boil. Drain the water and mash your potatoes. Mix in milk, cream, or butter and season with salt and pepper. Together with your honey garlic pork medallions, you can turn your house and lot near Nuvali or Luxury house and lot in Santa Rosa into a fine-dining spot for you, your family, or even for your friends.
