We have one week to put together our anticipated Father’s Day Menu and I am excited to share with you some of Ellen’s and my favorite ‘man-food’ recipes. For my husband this would include anything meaty and stick to your ribs goodness. It would not include anything with rice or warm fruit. Needless to say I won’t be cooking him any curry dishes this Sunday. So, I have had to branch out a little and prepare some hearty, meaty dishes to share with you (I have to admit I didn’t mind and am actually part carnivorous myself 🙂
This first recipe takes a simple, boring steak to a whole new level! The Parmesan Herb Butter you brush on the steak as it’s cooking, as well as adding it on top of your cooked steak, gives this steak a huge boost of flavor. Grilling the steak also gives the steak a nice, flavorful char on the outside but keeps the center of the steak nice and pink and tender. This steak pretty much will melt in your mouth and will take an inexpensive cut of beef to a whole new level! The men in your life are sure to love this dish!
- 2-3 lbs. boneless beef steaks
- PARMESAN HERB BUTTER:
- 1 stick butter softened
- 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 2-3 Tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
- Dash cayenne pepper
- Dash paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4-1/2 tsp. salt
- Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a grill to medium-high heat and place the steaks on the hot grill. Grill on both sides until the center of the steaks are cooked to your liking. While the steaks are cooking, put all of the butter ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth and the parsley and garlic have been broken down. When steaks are nearly done on the grill, spread a thin layer of parmesan butter on top of the steak. Remove from the grill and place on a plate to rest. When ready to serve, place another dallop of butter on top of the steak to enjoy while eating.
