OK, so the survey was performed by the Pelegrin Gray for The Beef Checkoff Program, a program that just so happens to be run by the Cattlemen's Beef Promotion And Research Board. We weren't completely surprised that they found 62 percent of Americans saying, "Give us the beef!" during their Valentine's dinners.
But lucky for us, they asked for specifics -- so you can start plotting your gastronomic seduction now. After all, everyone has to eat. And Valentine's Day ranks as the number two draw for restaurants (only spoiling mom in May gets more people out to eat).
When you're cooking up romance for your Valentine's Day dinner, the numbers indicate you should pony up for the tiny but tender filet mignon. The Cattlemen's survey says 53 percent of Americans associate this cut with candelight dinners, and 50 percent with saying "I love you" over a meal.
Still suffering a little bit from that big holiday spend? The less expensive ribeye got 35 percent of the vote, with a tasty T-bone grabbing 32 percent of American tastebuds for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. And you can always cook it at home to save some cash, and up the romance.
Will you be shelling out for steak for your Valentine's Day dinner? Or will you be opting for something more budget-friendly?
