Steak and Lobster Linguine is perfect for a Valentine's Day meal or any other special occasion.

Steak and Lobster Linguine ingredient list;

  • Lobster Tails
  • Beef Tenderloin
  • Linguine Pasta
  • White Wine
  • Butter
  • Heavy Cream
  • Old Bay Seafood Seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Chopped Parsley, for garnish

Alternative ingredients for making surf and turf linguine;

  • Instead of using beef tenderloin, please feel free to use a different cut of beef or protein altogether. Something will fit your budget (or taste preferences) better if desired. Pork tenderloin is an excellent choice.
  • Shrimp or crabmeat will work well as a substitution for the lobster tails. You can purchase them already cooked (if you wish), but if you do make sure you add them to the skillet along with the wine and butter sauce right before serving (and only to heat through), so they won’t turn rubbery.
  • Any pasta which is your favorite will work in this recipe. I chose linguine because, to me, it’s romantic.

What type of white wine do I use for making surf and turf linguine?

  • I used a Pino Grigio, but a chardonnay or even a rose will work. Make sure to purchase a wine that will fit your budget.
  • Also, make sure you use a wine which you would drink out of a glass, and not one specifically made for cooking. Cooking wines are not made for drinking on their own, so why would you cook with them?

Tips for slicing thin and tender pieces of protein.

  • I’ve found the best practice for slicing proteins (of any variety) thinly is to have the meat partially frozen. The knife will easily glide through the partially frozen meat, enabling the cutting of thin and uniform slices. I’ve found the best practice for slicing proteins thinly is to have the meat partially frozen. The knife will easily glide through the partially frozen meat making thin, uniform slices.
  • Always slice across the grain of the protein to ensure tender, easy to chew, meat.
