Valentine’s Day is coming!
It seems like we were just celebrating Christmas and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Are you ready yet?
I’m not into all of the flowers and cards that seem to define this holiday for lovers. But a delicious candlelight meal with the love of my life in our own little dining room? You can bet I’m all over that. You can take your crowded restaurants. I’m happy with a quiet dinner for two.
Comfort food is the key to my husband’s heart. And he especially loves steak. He’ll take any way he can get a juicy cut of beef. According to studies, Americans choose a ribeye or T-bone steak 50% more than chicken, fish or pork when it comes time to celebrate. And what do Americans say is the cut of beef most associated with candlelight romance? Filet Mignon. Ooo-la-la. If you’re looking for a more economical choice, sirloin steaks are the perfect option.
This Jalapeno Steak with Fresh Pineapple Salsa is a double love for Matt because it’s beef, but it’s spicy beef. He’s the kind of guy who takes a little spice with his spice.

Are you prepping a romantic Valentine’s Day feast? Find a wine that’s the perfect fit with this handy guide from the Ohio Beef Council. In a hurry? Cabernet Sauvignon pairs best with all cuts of beef.
Since this is a spicy steak recipe, you may ask how seasonings and spices influence your wine choice?
According to Ohio Beef, seasonings and spices often act as a bridge to wines.
What’s the biggest “no-no” in beef and wine pairing?
The biggest mistake in pairing beef and wine is adding blue cheese to the dish. Blue cheese is one of the most powerfully pungent, salty, and microbial foods. It makes most wines—red and white—taste dull and insipid. Save the blue cheese for dessert and serve it with a sweet fortified wine such as port!
Enjoy cuddling up with this special dinner this Valentine’s Day!
