-Steak, Bearnaise Sauce, King Crab, + Asparagus are all included in this amazingly delicious {Perfect Date Night} dinner recipe.-  

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I figured it was the perfect time to share one of the most delicious meals I’ve had in my entire life, EVER. The very first time I had this was also the very first Christmas Eve I spent with my boyfriend {Aww….}Ha! But really, we went to church + then came home, cracked a bottle of wine and created this amazing dish together! It was a HUGE success and we immediately made this meal part of our yearly Christmas traditions.

When I say this meal is downright unbelievable, I’m not lying. Just thinking about this dinner is making my mouth water as I’m sitting here, not at all hungry {because I just made an amazing donut recipe for you + obviously had to taste test them} and writing this post. The whole recipe is absolutely KILLER, I mean seriously: steak, King Crab, and asparagus all in one recipe?! And thenthe Bearnaise sauce… Oh-Em-Gee, the sauce. I could literally eat it on anything, including directly off of my finger. It’s the perfect mix of savory, tangy, and creamy… I just can’t even begin to describe my obsession with it. Oh, + I almost forgot to mention that is recipe I can’t stop talking about… it’s actually healthy for you. {Score!}

Because this meal is so good {+ slightly on the expensive side} I usually only pull it out from the archives only once or twice a year. It’s just one of those meals that is meant for a special occasion, just like that nicely aged bottle of wine you’ve been saving for just the right moment. And that’s why I figured this week was a prime opportunity to share this with you all. Because whether you’re looking to use your cooking skills “Wow” that special someone for the very first time, or if you’re looking for a way to spice this up after years + years of marriage, this recipe right here is your Golden Ticket.

So for Valentine’s Day this year I highly recommend you skip the crowded restaurants, light some candles , pour a couple glasses of wine + prepare to blow your lovers mind with a classy night in + this unbelievable recipe.
