For Valentine's Day, you don't need to fuss. A good steak paired with a couple of impeccable side dishes is really all you need. A filet mignon is expensive, but every bite is so succulent, and there's no waste. Some people think it doesn't have as much taste as ribeye or porterhouse, but when cooked as they are in steak houses this cut is wonderful.
The side dishes for this menu are easy, and they make enough so you have leftovers for the next day.
Antique Broccoli combines vegetables with a creamy cheese sauce and tops the whole thing with crisp buttered breadcrumbs. It's delicious as a main dish for vegetarians too!
And the dessert is nothing less than spectacular; a super simple creamy chocolate pie that takes about 10 minutes to make. It chills while you're enjoying the rest of the meal. Serve with some rose or red wine or champagne if you're feeling very festive.
Enjoy this easy and delicious dinner menu.
