Just as your dad has his favorite dish, so do the dads of Food Network. This Father’s Day, in lieu of the standard wrapped-and-ribboned gift, treat Dad to a meaty, homemade dinner inspired by Tyler, Pat, Geoffrey, Bobby and more of your favorite chefs. Hey, if it’s good enough for these guys, odds are that your dad will dig it too.
A dry-aged, bone-in rib-eye steak is perhaps the most extravagant way to show Dad some love. Tyler Florence’s El Paseo Porterhouse Steak is broiled to give it a gorgeous crust without singeing it on the grill, and he lets it rest in a clarified-butter bath for extra decadence. Tip: Since it’s his day, let Dad have the honor of nibbling off the bone at the very end.
If your dad ranks his burgers the way he ranks his sports teams, Pat Neely’s Swiss and Mushroom BBQ Burger is likely the best gift you could give. Topped with Swiss cheese and button mushrooms, it’s a burger bound to impress him.
Would your dad sooner be found at a sports bar than watching a big game on the couch? Bring his No. 1 place home. Geoffrey Zakarian’s BBQ Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Butter are battered and fried at home before being tossed in a sauce made from his favorite store-bought barbecue sauce.
Packing Dad a Father’s Day picnic doesn’t need to mean sad, cold sandwiches. Fry up some of Bobby Flay’s Classic Fried Chicken beforehand for a crispy, off-the-bone treat.
