Top 25 Father's Day Recipes

The most popular recipes for dear ol' Dad


It's the one day a year we set aside to celebrate dear ol' Dad and I promise you he would like nothing better than a great grill meal of some real traditional barbecue (even if he has to cook it himself). These recipes, last years most popular. Of course you might also consider some beef tri-tip, prime rib or seafood. Whatever you choose, make it something special.

1. Herbed Pork Burgers with Tapenade Aioli

Herbed Pork Burgers with Tapenade Aioli
Regarding BBQ Inc.
This is a great alternative to the standard beef burger. While this recipe calls for beef, you can substitute with ground chicken or turkey. The tapenade aioli adds a level of creamy deliciousness that helps to brighten the herbed flavor of the patty.

2. Spicy Pulled Pork

You can adjust the amount of red pepper used in this pulled pork recipe to increase or reduce it spiciness.

3. Garlic Basted Tomahawk Steaks

Garlic Basted Tomahawk Steaks
Regarding BBQ Inc.
These delicious tomahawk steaks are seasoned with a simple rub, placed on the grill, and basted with a garlic, herb-butter concoction throughout the cooking process. A fantastic treat!

4. Stout and Honey Mustard Lamb Leg

Stout and Honey Mustard Lamb Leg
Regarding BBQ Inc.
This leg of lamb is marinated in a tasty combination of honey, mustard and beer. I use stout because it has a great bitter flavor that really adds to the lamb. Choose a good oatmeal stout for a milder flavor.

5. Cowboy Steak

Cowboy Steak
Regarding BBQ, Inc.
This is a fantastic way to add a southwestern flare to a porterhouse steak. With a quick sear on the grill, the chipotle paste is locked in making this dish very flavorful.

6. Blackened Red Snapper

You will want to have your grill as hot as you can get it for this recipe. The idea is to get the seasonings to blacken before you flip the red snapper. Then serve it up with the lemon-butter sauce.

7. Grilled Trout with Parsley

Three Whole Trout

This trout recipe works best with a whole fish because you will want to place all the herbs inside of it. This trout makes a delicious meal any day of the week.

8. Corn with Shallot-Parsley Rub

Perfect for large quantity cooking, the savory butter compliments the sweetness of BBQ'd corn. Make the butter mixture ahead of time and store in refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

9. Fifty Dollar Rib-eye Burger

Fifty Dollar Ribeye Burger
Regarding BBQ, Inc.
Quite likely to be the best hamburger you'll ever try. Rib-eye steaks are ground and filled with a delicious morel mushroom and shallot filling, topped with melted Port Salut cheese, a wine and Dijon reduction, onion rings, then served in a toasted brioche bun.

10. Brat Burger

Brat Burger
Regarding BBQ Inc.
Want the best of both worlds? How about a hamburger made with a bratwurst patty, topped with sauerkraut, mustard, and pickles. The best part is that this burger is as easy as any to make. These burgers have a unique flavor that is perfect for the person looking for more than that same old hamburger.
