6. Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is a tradition in our family for Valentine’s Day. We always make extra so that we can make chicken Parmesan sandwiches the next day. This fatty dish can be very heavy for Valentine’s, so this lower fat version is a winner.

5. Rib Eye Steak With Sherry Cream Sauce

This delicious rib eye steak is a great dish for Valentine’s Day. It’s easy to make, and the steak is seasoned simply with just salt and pepper. The author adds a great tip- cook your steak from room temperature. It helps the meat cook evenly.

4. Roasted Lobster Tails With Ginger Sauce

Lobster is a traditional Valentine’s Day dinner. It can be messy and time consuming to break down a whole lobster, and then you smell like seafood for the night. A good option is just cooking the lobster tails. Mix it up with this delicious ginger sauce.

3. Tuscan Porterhouse Steak With Red Wine Peppercorn Jus

The porterhouse steak cut is a great alternative to splurging on tenderloin. You still get a large portion of the tender meat, but you also get a whole New York strip steak. It’s a good size for two people, so you need only buy one steak for dinner.

2. Steamed Mussels In Coconut Milk

Mussels are a great protein for Valentine’s Day. Buy them right before using, or else you might find they have died in your fridge. They should be very affordable, but some inland cities have a markup on their shipping costs. This coconut sauce gives a unique touch to this dish.
