Steak and Potatoes!
Fathers' Day is celebrated on the
3rd Sunday in June since being made a national holiday in 1966.
Instead of just a telephone call, a card, or a new tie or shirt, how about making your Father a great meal he will always remember, treasure, and put a
smile on his face? Maybe - just maybe, Dad will want to do the grilling, barbecuing, and/or smoking of the meats himself.
What food do most Fathers like - Beef of course!
The beef can be grilled, barbecued, or roasted. It
doesn’t matter, as long as it is beef and tastes great. How about giving your Dad a perfectly cooked steak
to his liking? Nothing says "I love you" to a man like a perfectly cooked steak.
You will definitely reap the rewards of a very happy father this year.
Learn how to
Cook the Perfect Steak
Using dry heat is the best way
to cook steaks and other tender cuts of meat. Dry heat cooking causes the
exterior of the meat to brown and caramelize which gives the steaks a richly
browned complex flavor. This is partly a result of the sugars inherent in the
meat going through a series of complex reactions called the "Maillard reaction."
The moisture on the surface of the meat also evaporates and the juices becomes
concentrated, forming the appealing brown crust.

Louisiana Crawfish Boil
What looks, tastes, and smells like seafood, but doesn't come from the sea? It's crawfish, a freshwater
shellfish that is considered a Louisiana delicacy. Crawfish boils are wonderful messy affairs, best suited for the outdoors. Boiling crawfish is a
festive event and eating it is thirsty work, so we made sure to have lots of beer on hand. Check out the photo tutorial.
Cajun Fried Turkey
This is the best way of cooking a turkey I've ever tasted. The turkey is anything but greasy as the deep-frying process seals the
outside and the turkey remains incredibly juicy, while the skin gets wonderfully crispy. Check out the photo tutorial.
