If you’re thinking about buying your dad another tie this year, stop right now. Purchasing a nice gift for Father’s Day is always a go-to, but it isn’t your only option. As the saying goes when it comes to most men, the way to their heart is through their stomachs. What we’re saying here is that for men, food is king. A delicious, meat-filled meal that is cooked with love is a gift your dad will appreciate time and time again.
Pork Prime Rib and Carved Pit Ham
When we say “pork”, the first thing that probably comes to your mind (and the minds of men everywhere) is bacon. Bacon is a delicious staple in many people’s lives, but when it comes to Father’s Day, step up you pork game and take a stab at cooking up some pork prime rib or a carved pit ham. These two flavorful pork options are a little more “fancy” which is why they are perfect for a Father’s Day meal. Treat your dad to the lap of luxury on his special day.
Beef Prime Rib, Beef Tenderloin
When it comes to meat, beef is always a fantastic option. Most men (if given the choice) would love a nice piece of red meat on their plates. Not only is beef delicious, it is also filled with healthy nutrients like iron. The typical go-to for beef is steak – flank, sirloin, ribeye, but other great options that are easy to make are beef prime rib and beef tenderloin. Beef prime rib is not technically a beef cut but is a preparation method for a beef rib roast. The roast is cooked at a high temperature to produce a flavorful brown crust, then at a lower temperature to finish cooking the meat. Beef tenderloin, on the other hand, is known to be a very tender portion of meat and is perfect for roasting or barbecuing. Just remember these tips when you’re cooking beef tenderloin to make sure it turns out perfect.
Mmm…chicken. Chicken is such a staple meat for any season or occasion – Father’s Day included. With a little more time and effort, you can take a piece of plain chicken and make it spectacular with a few ingredients. Some of our favorite chicken dishes include: stuffed chicken, roasted chicken, and teriyaki chicken. Stuffed chicken is a piece of chicken with a little surprise inside. The nice thing about stuffed chicken is it can be made to fit any cuisine – Mexican, Chinese, Italian – you name it.Other chicken options that are great for any occasion are teriyaki chicken and roasted chicken. Roasted chicken is wonderful because you can just place the chicken in the oven and when it comes out the meat is extremely moist and melts in your mouth.
We hope these meat-tastic options are menu items you consider for your Father’s Day celebration. If they sound like a large task to take on yourself (cooking can be hard and it takes time!), don’t hesitate to reach out to your local caterer to help you create the perfect Father’s Day meal. Leave the cooking up to a caterer, and you can spend the day with the man of the hour – your dad!
