This will be my first of three menu ideas for a romantic Valentine’s Dinner menu, and it happens to be my favorite! My husband and I love dining out at steakhouses but with the hefty price tag I set out to make the same thing at home. Strip steaks cooked in a cast iron skillet topped with a garlic rosemary butter served with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes, this will impress your date without keeping you in the kitchen all night! One thing I would highly suggest is cooking these outside on the burner of a grill if at all possible. We made them inside and the smoke was kind of overwhelming so I learned two things: if you are going to cook them inside then just unplug your smoke detector and know that as soon as they steaks go in the oven the smoke will dissipate quickly.
