How to Prepare the Perfect Romantic Steak Dinner for Two
BEST CUTS OF STEAK FOR DATE NIGHT
Date night requires no ordinary cut of steak. After all, your goal is to make a dazzling impression. And if you’re a movie lover, you know that certain cuts of steak take center stage for romantic dinners. We have three that we love to recommend when the occasion turns to romance.
The Filet Mignon
Just the name filet mignon conjures thoughts of romantic dinners for two at charming, big-city steakhouses. And it’s easy to see why – from its tender, buttery texture to its mouthwatering, mild beef flavor, this is the romantic dinner go-to. Choose our Gold Grade filet mignon and take your Valentine’s Day meal from ordinary to extraordinary.
This rare and unique cut is usually only found in a real steakhouse, but our American Wagyu Gold™ Grade Delmonico is the perfect choice for a romantic steak dinner. Each one weighs in at an impressive 38 ounces so you can share this beautiful, richly marbled cut with your date. We leave the bone in for not only its breathtaking presentation, but to help produce an unparalleled tenderness and juiciness. The Delmonico is a true steak-lover’s treat.
The New York Strip
Our American Wagyu New York Strip, created from a cross between purebred Japanese Wagyu cattle and American cattle, ensures a flavorful and tender one-of-a-kind steak. Wet-aged for a minimum of 21 days, you’ll experience exceptional flavor with a subtle sweetness that will make your taste buds dance. It comes in classic, filet, or bone-in and will have you feeling like you’re dining at a fancy steakhouse in New York City.
MAKE IT A ROMANTIC DINNER WITH STEAK & LOBSTER
There’s no better way to elevate your romantic dinner than by serving a classic surf & turf. Steak and lobster are ideal complements to each other and will make your evening feel luxurious.
Our classic surf & turf features two mouthwatering American Wagyu Gold™ Grade 10 oz. filet mignons and six to seven oz. Maine lobster tails.
RECIPE IDEAS FOR A ROMANTIC STEAK DINNER
A romantic steak dinner should be rich, savory, and elegant. Presentation is key – from the sear on the steak all the way down to the side dishes.
Here are a few of our favorite romantic steak dinner recipes to help get you started.
Sous Vide End-Cut NY Strip With Truffle Butter
Sous vide is a cooking method in which the steak is placed in a vacuum-sealed bag and immersed in warm water. You can easily control how the steak is cooked and it helps ensure the perfect temperature. This recipe utilizes a tougher cut of steak and helps tenderize it by the cooking method. We added a touch of elegance by pairing it with a special compound butter which features shallots, garlic, and delectable truffles for a show stopping Valentine’s Day dinner for two.
Pan-Seared NY Steak With Red Win Pan Sauce
Consider this your go-to recipe if you’re an inexperienced cook. Grab one of your favorite bottles of red wine and add shallots, rosemary, broth, and butter for a savory pan sauce that pairs perfectly with your American Wagyu New York Strip. Add a potato and your favorite veggie for a romantic dinner for two.
Filet Mignon with Blistered Tomato & Chili Garlic Crisp
A touch of acidity and spice is the perfect way to heat up the romance, and our chili sauce recipe pairs perfectly with filet mignon, the most elegant of steaks. This recipe calls for the infusion of vegetable or peanut oil using ingredients such as serrano peppers, smoked paprika, peppercorns, red chili flakes, and a little soy sauce to bring out the umami flavorings.
Bone-In NY Strip with Wild Mushroom Cream Steak Sauce
A luxurious steak glazed with a savory mushroom cream sauce is a steakhouse classic, and you can bring the experience home with our very own recipe for the famed new york strip.This dish elevates the steak with an elegant presentation and use of a simple but rich sauce that includes a beautiful variety of sliced mushrooms, butter, and garlic.
