What would Dad like more than yet another tie? A vibrant, flavor-packed summer cookout, that’s what. Surprise him with a delicious dinner straight from the grill that you can share together. We combed through our recipe archive and threw in some new, summery ideas to make sure Dad feels the love from appetizers to dessert.

Appetizers

Strawberry and Goat Cheese Bruschetta

While the grates heat up, share a spread of seasonal snacks like this berry and basil bruschetta. It’s a little sweet and a little salty, just like Dad.

Grilled Tomato and Romaine Salad

This refreshing salad is right in Dad’s wheelhouse — every step takes place at the grill. Cook the romaine until it’s just charred, and take this opportunity to enjoy tomatoes in peak season.

Main Course

Berbere-Rubbed Rib-Eye Steaks with Grilled Lemon

Invest just a little time before and after cooking to make next-level steaks on the grill. Here's your game plan:

Before: Sprinkle this rich cut of meat with berbere — a trendy yet timeless Ethiopian spice blend — for a pleasant amount of heat.

During: Build two zones of heat on your charcoal grill; one indirect, low-heat zone (about 250°F) and one direct, high-heat zone (about 400°F). Over low heat, cook steak to an internal temperature of 120°F. Then “reverse sear” for an incredible exterior texture: Move the steak to the high-heat area until the rib eye reaches an internal temperature of 135°F.

After: Remove from the grill and allow the meat to rest for 10 minutes for the juices to redistribute. Thinly slice against the grain and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil.

And while you’re at it, add this zesty side dish:

Grilled Asparagus with Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette

For the vinaigrette, give the garlic a little TLC at 350° F in the oven. Then turn to the grill, where you’ll have tender, melt-in-your-mouth asparagus spears in 5–7 minutes.

Drinks

Show you know Dad’s taste by pairing the meal with his favorite drink! Not sure what flavors blend best with this Father’s Day menu? Our beverage experts have you covered.

Dessert

Grilled Fruit and Strawberry Shortcake
