1) Do Nothing Let your steak sit on the counter for 20 minutes to an hour before cooking. Meat brought to room temperature cooks faster and more evenly. If you’ve got a salad to prep or a last-minute Father’s Day gift to wrap, now would be the time. ... View Tip
Fire up those grills or stovetops and get ready to spoil dad. While he has a whole summer of outdoor cooking coming his way, he shouldn’t be responsible for his own Father’s Day dinner.
Here at Butcher Boy Market we know what Dad really wants: steak. So we’re serving up several tasty and unique recipes to go with some of our favorites cuts. Not a steak cooking champ like Dad? Refer to these six easy tricks for grilling the perfect steak, and our guide on how to check your meat’s temperature without a thermometer.
1) Filet Mignon with Porcini Compound Butter
Oh the tender filet. This lean cut, when cooked correctly, has all the decadence of a upscale restaurant without the price tag. FoodieCrush advises that you pan-grill the steak first, and finish it off in the oven. The Porcini compound butter creates a succulent sauce when melded with the meat. Bacon-wrap your steak for an extra burst of flavor. Don’t be stingy with the kosher salt and black pepper. Serve with pats of the butter on top.
2) Seared New York Strip Steak with Red Wine Balsamic Reduction
Strip steaks are easy-to-cook and delicious with a tight texture and strong beefy flavor. The Cookie Rookie‘s recipe for skillet seared strip steak with balsamic reduction is perfect for your Father’s Day celebration or just a regular day. Massage the reduction into the steak and top with garlic, sea salt, and rosemary, let it marinade for thirty minutes before cooking. Slice the meat and drizzle on the remaining sauce.
3) Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
For a bigger and beefier meal, grill your dad the proclaimed King of T-Bones, the Porterhouse steak. With just a little heat from jalapeño, Fine Cooking‘s recipe pairs the steak with their spicy take on the classic Argentinean condiment: chimichurri. As with every steak, after you’ve finished cooking to your desired temperature, let it rest before serving. Trust us on this.
4) T-Bone Steak with Garlic and Rosemary Recipe
The t-shaped bone in the t-bone steak conducts heat within the meat, which helps it cook evenly. This cut doesn’t need a long cooking time to tenderize, and is a popular staple of steakhouses. To avoid the madness of a steakhouse on Father’s Day, use Kitchen Swagger‘s “steakhouse method” recipe at home instead. The steak is seared with butter, olive oil, minced garlic, and fresh rosemary, then finished off in the oven to give it a slightly crusted outside and juicy tender inside.
5) Cowboy Steak and Whiskey Butter
The Cowboy steak, also known as a bone-in ribeye, is a tender cut with a delicious marbling of fat. If Dad is a fan of Jack Daniel, then this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens is sure to please. First, prepare the compound whisky butter and roll in a round log to refrigerate until hard and easy to cut. Next, prepare the dry rub and follow the grill instructions for medium-rare doneness. Let it rest before topping it with the butter.
Happy Father’s Day from Butcher Boy!
