What Are You Grilling for Dad on Father's Day?

Flank Steak with a Guinness Marinade  (see below)

In honor of all the special Dads this weekend, here is one of my favorite poems I'd like to share with you.

What Makes A Dad
God took the strength of a mountain
The majesty of a tree
The warmth of a summer sun
The calm of a quiet sea
The generous soul of nature
The comforting arms of night
The wisdom of the ages
The power of the eagles flight
The joy of a morning in spring
The faith of a mustard seed
The patience of eternity
The depth of a family need
Then God combined these qualities
When there was nothing more to add
He knew His masterpiece was complete
And so. He called it....DAD

Now fire up the grill this Father's Day and prepare this simple steak recipe I found on rachaelray that the man in your life is sure to love. The secret is a marinade using Guinness that adds a little zip to the flavor.  

Flank steak is a great choice for flavor and provides your dish with a tender texture.  To Serve 4, purchase 1 1/2 lbs. flank steak.  Preheat the grill to medium high .  
You will be using 1 can Guinness, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil,   (you will need a bit more for brushing), 1 red onion, sliced into rounds, 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley, 1 1/2 lbs. flank steak at room temperature.
In a bowl, combine Guinness, 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, onion and parsley.  Add the steak and marinate in fridge for 30 minutes.  Pat dry and brush with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper before grilling.  Grill the onion with the steak for extra flavor. 
Grill approximately 8 minutes on each side until your desired doneness.  
I love corn on the cob and baked potatoes with this dish...Don't forget plenty of  butter and sour cream!

Happy Father's Day to my Husband, Dad, Son and Son In Law and all of the special men dear to our hearts each and every day! 

Happy Birthday Wishes today to the love of my life, Michael and may we share many more birthdays and milestones together for years to come. I love you!
