1. Chicken Mole
Try chocolate a new way, mole. Chicken mole is the perfect entree that utilizes chocolate, the world’s greatest aphrodisiac, but doesn’t get overwhelmed by it. Trust us, this is way better than a stale box from the grocery store.
2. Roasted Cod with Olives and Lemon
Light and flavorful, this simple fish dish is just about as good as taking a trip to the Mediterranean Coast. Well, almost. Maybe take that trip next year.
3. Pan-Seared Steak with Balsamic and Basil Cherry Tomatoes
Sure, you’ve made steak before, it’s always going to be a winner. But on this day, it’s time to cook a steak dish with a little bit more refinement and subtlety. Rather than drop a massive t-bone on the grill, knock out this easy recipe and wow her with restaurant-level cooking.
4. Slow Cooker Short Ribs
We’ve talked about the awesomeness of the crockpot before. Why not make it work for you on V-Day? Drop the ingredients in, give it 8 hours, and enjoy the compliments, it’s that easy.
Sometimes it’s good to respect the classics, they’re classics for a reason. Plus, a dish that goes really well with a great bottle of red wine is always a good idea. Sure, you can serve it with spaghetti but we say a piece of crusty bread is all you’ll need, these meatballs are that good.
