Get ready for Valentine’s Day with VG Meats

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this year, it has to share the spotlight with Super Bowl weekend. The annual celebration of love also happens to fall on a Monday, which means you’ve got to celebrate early (we recommend February 12th, if you want to keep Super Bowl day sacred) or find a way to combine your love of football with your love for your significant other. There’s also Galentine’s Day to consider, should you want to make the weekend even more wonderfully complicated. And why not? We’re all for celebrating whatever brings you joy, whether it’s romance, football, or female friendship.

A great celebration starts with a delicious meal and as always, we have some ideas to inspire you. Here are our picks for a delicious Valentine’s Day meal. If you’re ready to start shopping, come see us in store or check out our Valentine’s Day collection online!

For an elegant evening

If you’re the type of person who goes all out for Valentine’s Day, consider preparing an elegant dinner at home. We recommend prime rib steaks, beef tenderloin steaks, a roast chicken with lemon and rosemary or a Tomahawk steak. If you like surf n’ turf, our mini steaks pair beautifully with lobster, shrimp or crab. Grab some local wine or a bottle of champagne (or sparkling water, if you prefer), create a romantic playlist and take the time to set a beautiful table with your best linens and candles. Be sure to make or buy a nice dessert (or maybe an Irish coffee or chocolate cocktail) and enjoy a restaurant quality dining experience in the comfort of your own home.

For casual couples

Valentine’s Day doesn’t need to be fancy—in fact, many couples prefer a casual night in. If you’re the type of person who chooses burgers over fine dining, let your Valentine’s Day dinner reflect that. We recommend cooking up some delicious Rib Eye, NY Striploin or T-bone steaks with crispy fries and a green salad on the side, or some smoked pork chops or pork rib chops with garlic mashed potatoes and your favourite vegetables. You can even go the burger route, if that’s what you feel like! After all, there’s nothing like a portobello mushroom steak burger and your favourite craft beer.

For families

Valentine’s Day doesn’t always mean candlelight and romance—sometimes, it’s a family celebration. If you’ve got kids at home, consider making a family-friendly meal like a giant charcuterie board or spaghetti with homemade meatballs. Decorate your dining room with paper hearts, make each other cards, pour some sparkling cider and leave room for dessert (cupcakes are always a hit with kids). It may not be the kind of Valentine’s Day you celebrated before kids, but we bet you’ll have a great time. No matter who you’re sharing February 14th with, cheers to love!
