A majority of Americans agree the best way to say "I love you" to your sweetheart on Valentine's Day is with a steak!

Here it is... Restaurant style filet Mignon
Your steak will be ready when it is approximately 135 degrees in the center, or when you push lightly on the top center of the steak and it gently and slowly bounces back. (Note, this is medium rare kids. Some people don’t like to eat cows while they are mooing, so clearly you can cook longer if your afraid of the pink.)
Treat your sweetie to a nutritional powerhouse meal. On average, one 3-ounce serving of lean beef is only 154 calories yet a naturally rich source of 10 essential nutrients - including protein, iron, zinc and B-vitamins. There are more than 29 lean cuts of beef (a cut for everyday in February), including favorites like Flank steak, Tenderloin, 95 percent lean Ground Beef and T-Bone.
