When you are looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day dinner, what do you think of? There are lots of wonderful recipes out there, from succulent chicken piccata to classic shrimp cocktail. But, for my money, nothing beats a steak dinner for two.

Plus, steak is truly easy and quick to cook! With just a few tips and techniques, you can easily make a restaurant-worthy meal in under half an hour, with no hassle.

What Is the Easiest Steak to Cook?

You might think that a cheaper, more basic steak such as a chuck steak is the easiest to cook, but it’s actually the opposite! Cheaper cuts like chuck steak can be very flavorful, but are tougher. For that reason, they tend to be a little bit more challenging, especially if you want them grilled or baked.

The easiest, quickest steaks to cook are tender, steakhouse-style cuts like ribeye, New York strip, porterhouse, and T-bone. Because these steaks are tender from the get-go, all you have to do is lightly cook them for a short time in a hot pan, on a grill, or in the oven (or air fryer! More on that in a minute!).

What to Serve on the Side?

If you do make a steak for Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with a simple side dish or two that really let the flavor of your main dish shine. From crisp salads to satisfying pastas, there are all kinds of easy, healthy recipes you can make, to create the ultimate steak dinner. Here are a few fabulous ideas:

And, those are just the start! Serve what you love – everything goes with steak!
