Father’s Day, the age-old tradition celebrating all dads, gives us a chance to thank these special men, to acknowledge their contributions in our lives and to give them a little TLC. And while there are many ways to celebrate, a home cooked meal may just be the perfect way to honor DAD! Show him you love him by taking the time to make him a memorable dinner. Let’s face it, any celebration that ends in the kitchen around a table is bound to yield wonderful conversations, family remembrances and lots of love.
But now that you have decided to pamper dad with a nice dinner, you need to plan that delicious menu? How about upping the game and celebrating with steak. The recipe below is not difficult, but makes the most of quality ingredients. Pair with some roasted potatoes, in-season vegetables and a crusty loaf of bread and you are all set.
