Thinking about doing dinner? Create a romantic meal at home, featuring surf ‘n’ turf made with Certified Angus Beef.

There’s nothing more memorable than the mouth-watering taste of a tender, juicy Certified Angus Beef steak. You’ll find the Certified Angus Beef brand —the best beef in the Midwest — in the Meat Department at your local Strack & Van Til store.

Only the best cuts can be called Certified Angus Beef, the most luxurious beef available.

“To earn the name Certified Angus Beef, each cut must meet stringent quality standards, including abundant marbling, appearance and tenderness,” said Meat Department Director Gary Teachman. “This ensures that every bite is incredibly tender, naturally juicy and exceptionally flavorful.”

To serve up that surf ‘n’ turf, Certified Angus Beef Filet Mignon is $13.98 per pound beginning Oct. 16. That’s just $6.99 per 8-ounce serving. Make your meal extra special by adding delicious lobster tails; each 4-ounce tail is about $6.99.

To cap off your meal or serve a delicious treat, indulge your special someone with a decadent dessert from the Strack & Van Til Bakery.

“Our bakery products are made from scratch and are Indiana made every day,” said Bakery Department Director Tim Calderone. “Choose from a wide array of delectable choices, including gourmet cupcakes, store-made doughnuts, custom decorated cakes, sweet premium fruit and cream pies and much more.”

Strack & Van Til is featuring delicious single-layer heart-shaped cakes for just $6.99 each and decorated message cookie cakes for $9.99. Sale begins Oct. 16.
