“Dear old Dad loves him some steak…”
I swear Father’s Day was made for the grill; the ideal meal for any father usually involves an enormous cut of meat roasted over open flame. Whether it’s the hunter instinct or intrinsic carnivorous inclinations, a grilled meal is welcoming to most men. To help you celebrate your father this Father’s Day, here is Grilled Steak With Caper Sauce. A simple preparation with robust flavor, this is a great dish to recommend to your spouse when she is asking what you want for your special meal.
For this preparation, T-bone steak is the preferred and superior cut of beef, but strip steak can be used as well. Allow the steaks to come to room temperature for uniform cooking, and season with salt and pepper. Grill over medium-high heat for 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium-rare. The caper sauce is a mixture of olive oil, fresh parsley, chopped capers, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper. Once removed from the grill and allowed to rest, serve the steaks with the caper sauce to add a rich and opulent savor to each bite. So simple and delightful, this is a sure fire way to bless your father with a wonderful meal he will remember – Happy Father’s Day.
