Are you still undecided as to what to cook for your dad this Father’s Day? Well, here’s a little help for ya!
Since most men tend to really dig their meat, I thought I’d put together a little roundup of 20 “manly” recipes that place meat right at the very heart of the action. Because I think no matter if you braise it, grill it or pan sear it, you’re almost guaranteed to hit the spot if you put meat on the menu that day.
Some of the recipes come from this very blog; others I’ve found around the web and thought looked TOTALLY worthy of the occasion, so I thought I’d share them with you. Finally, I’ve also included a few recipes from Paleo Home Cooking, just to tease you and give you another little glimpse of what my cookbook has to offer. How mean of me, I know. But hey… that cookbook would make for an awesome Father’s Day gift, you know! Just sayin’
Alright, I’ll leave you to peruse the recipes, now. Feast your eyes; hopefully, you’ll find something that inspires you and that will please dad in the lot!
And if you’re a dad, Happy Father’s Day to you!

According to author, this is the easiest, no-fuss, most amazing pork chop ever and 20 minutes are all you need to whip it up, from start to finish.

FILET MIGNON WITH BEURRE MAITRE D’HOTEL
Steak made simple and elegant is what this dish is all about. The seasoned butter confers such a rich and buttery flavor to the meat, there’s no point in adding much of anything at all to it. A gentle kiss of the flame and a liberal amount of salt and pepper are all that are really needed here.
