The Perfect First-Date Dinner — Cute Guy Included


You've heard it a million times before, but it's true: the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. If you find yourself cooking for him for the first time, get it right with a simple but fantastic and unforgettable meal. Green beans, rosemary fingerling potatoes, and (most importantly) a savory rib-eye steak are easier to make than you think and well worth the payoff. With a little help from Barry Taylor at Sorted Food on Tastemade, we show you how to pull out all the stops, so you can get the sizzles going all evening long.

Watch the video to see how all three are cooked, and then get the recipes.
