It's the most romantic holiday of the year. Valentine's Day is here. If you're like me you have been struggling to find the perfect gift for your special someone. Do you buy jewelry? Do you buy flowers? Do you buy chocolates and flowers? Do you get that crappy heart candy that tastes like chalk? Or do you get your sweetheart something any carnivorous Montanan would love? Give the gift of a perfectly cooked steak. But, not just any steak. Give the king of the cuts! A heart-shaped ribeye steak.

Don't doubt it for one second. The quickest way to your valentine's heart is through their stomach. And any Montanan can agree that a well-cooked steak is good for any special occasion. But, the art of making the perfect cut on the steak is what transforms it from a regular ribeye steak to a mouth-watering valentine.

Here is what you will need to do.

  1. Get yourself a boneless rib roast. Much like the one you got for Christmas dinner. Or, ask the butcher to cut a steak for you that is at least 3in thick.
  2. Get yourself a sharp knife and cutting board.
  3.  The tricky part. It is called butterflying. It is when you cut the steak down the center. But carefully not to cut completely through the steak. The steak should open up like a book.

If done correctly, once opened, the steak should resemble a heart shape. If needed cut a little more near the top of the "heart shape" to make it look like a protein-packed valentine.

Check out the video below for a more in-depth look at how to properly make your steak into a delicious Valentine's Day meal.
