Dads can be notoriously difficult to buy gifts for, but they aren’t hard to cook for. Just like anyone else, your father will appreciate a homemade dinner this Father’s Day. Hopefully, you’ve been paying attention all of these years and know what he likes to eat. Famous Foods has gathered these dinner ideas to inspire you when planning his special holiday meal.
1. Steak and Baked Potato
The classic meat-and-potatoes approach to Father’s Day works for many men. Because it’s a special occasion, you should choose a cut like T-bone or rib eye. For the best results, have the meat at room temperature before you grill it. An instant read thermometer will help you cook the steak just the way that your dad likes it.
2. Barbecue Baby Back Pork Ribs
Baby back pork ribs offer tender meat on small ribs. When prepping the ribs for cooking, carefully cut off the silver skin membrane along the bottom of the rib slab to make it easier to nibble meat off of the bones.
3. Grilled Salmon
Some fresh salmon on the grill, perhaps seasoned with a sprinkle of dill, is certain to make dad forget your youthful transgressions, at least during dinner. Examine your fish pieces before you cook them and extract bones with needle nose pliers. Seasonal side dishes that are nice with salmon are new potatoes and asparagus.
4. Grilled Shrimp Foil Packets
You can make a big impact with shrimp foil packets even if you don’t have a kitchen full of fancy cooking gear. You can quickly prepare for the grill an assembly of shrimp, potatoes, garlic, and corn sprinkled with Old Bay seasoning and drizzled with olive oil wrapped up in layers of aluminum foil. If bad weather spoils your grilling plans, put the packets in hot oven.
5. Black Bean Enchiladas
Fill up your vegetarian dad with a hearty pan of black bean enchiladas. A filling of beans and cheese ensures his hunger will be satisfied. Smother the casserole in a classic enchilada sauce or give it a brighter presentation with a sauce of blended sour cream and avocados.
