Chinese Valentine’s Day Recipes
One of the best ways to show your significant other just how much they are loved is to cook them a special meal on Valentine’s Day. However if you’ve done this several Valentine’s Days’ in a row using the same recipes, it can become uneventful and expected. So why not spice things up a bit by trying some fun new Chinese recipes in place of your usual meal.
If your Valentine loves to eat beef, why not try:
Beef with Broccoli Recipe
Stir fried beef with broccoli is a Chinese favorite and is quick and easy to make. If you don’t have a stove top, or if you don’t like the mess in the house, you can always stir fry on a single burner outside like I do.This meal is complete when served with steamed white rice, which can be made in a pot as shown here, or purchased in pouches, such as the Uncle Ben’s brand, that can be microwaved. These can usually be found in regular grocery stores and at Trader Joe’s in the frozen section.
Slow Cooked Chinese Short Ribs Recipe
If your special someone likes a more warm and filling meal, these short ribs are sure to be a hit. These ribs are slow cooked all day in a sauce made with star anise, ginger, and orange peel to create that perfect melt in your mouth texture and warm delicious flavor. Complete this meal by serving the ribs with a side of white steamed rice, and steamed vegetables. This makes an amazing warm Valentine’s Day dinner.
If your Valentine loves fish, here are some delicious Chinese fish recipes:
Chinese Crispy Fish Recipe
This recipe uses fillets in place of the entire fish, however if you wish to use a whole fish for this recipe you may, just score it on both sides before placing it in the egg and cornstarch. Then serve it with steamed broccoli and a side of fried rice for an amazing Valentine’s Day meal.
Steamed Ginger Salmon RecipeThis salmon recipe is one of my favorites because it is so easy to make and it tastes amazing! Just make sure to purchase salmon filets that are already skinned and cut. Like the Chinese crispy fish, this salmon can be served with fried rice and a steamed vegetable, creating the perfect meal for Valentine’s Day.
Finally, if your Valentine loves chicken, here are two delicious Chinese chicken recipes:
Almond Boneless Chicken Recipe
Popularly known as war su gai, this chicken is battered, fried, topped with crunchy almonds, and then served with a delicious soy sauce gravy. This is sure to please any fried chicken lover! To complete this meal for Valentine’s Day, simply serve with steamed rice and a vegetable such as stir fried green beans.

Another restaurant favorite that is perfect for Valentine’s Day is kung pao chicken. A spicy stir fry that is sure to please any chicken lover. Serve this dish with white steamed rice and your romantic dinner is complete.
