These Skillet Steaks with Gorgonzola Herbed Butter are a definite favorite around here. So juicy, delicious, and absolutely on my must-make list for my Valentine!

Mercy! I might be more excited about those steaks than I should be!

The recipe is for four steaks, so just adjust accordingly. {wink}

These rosemary potatoes go perfectly with my skillet steak, too.

The cooking time is the same, so you’ll just pop these in the oven as you are prepping for your skillet steaks.

Of course, if you’d rather, since it is Valentine’s Day and all, you could make THESE instead.

Calories don’t count on Valentine’s Day, do they?

These loaded smashed potatoes just take a few more minutes than the steak and rosemary potatoes, but believe me – they are worth it!

Now, all you need is something green. Just toss together a quick salad and enjoy!

For dessert, I have a few options for you. Here are some of my favorites that can be ready in less than 20 minutes.

    I have made your loaded smashed potatoes a few weeks ago, and LOVED them. Your steak is looking fabulous too. I make roasted potatoes with garlic and parsley, so I am looking forward to trying your rosemary take! Enjoy your Sunday!
