It’s February, and the month of love! Does anyone else love this month as much as I do? I have the perfect petit filet with red wine pan sauce to celebrate with your sweetie. For me, there is no better way to celebrate than whipping up a delicious meal and sharing good conversation over a glass of wine at home. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy being wined and dined at a romantic restaurant for special holidays, but we all know that staying in for Valentine’s Day is more affordable and you can control the ambiance.
Tender petit filets, silky mashed potatoes, perfectly crunchy asparagus, a gorgeous red wine sauce…this meal is the definition of luxurious and even lets the main man in your life help out by grilling the steaks (weather permitting of course). It goes perfectly with a glass or two of your favorite red wine and I recommend eating by candlelight for an added element of romance.
