Father’s Day Grill Fest – June 16th

Summertime is here! The fact is that over half of us grill two or three times a week throughout the summer months. Grilling is fun and – most of us agree – just about everything tastes better hot off the grill. Let us put together a custom gift basket for Dad this year – full of all his favorite grilling spices, rubs and more.

Join us for our Grill Fest on Saturday, June 16!  Try some new marinades, rubs and sauces for Dad’s special day!

Recipe:  –  Grilled Sirlion Steak

The bold combination of soy sauce, balsamic, and maple syrup works its magic on the meat quickly, so it only needs to marinate for as long as it takes to get your grill fired up. Come summer, it’s a natural with a tomato salad and corn on the cob.

 3 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

4 garlic cloves, chopped

2 pounds sirloin flap steaks


Blend soy sauce, vinegar, syrup, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a blender until smooth. Toss steaks with mixture. Marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes.

Prepare a grill for direct-heat cooking over hot charcoal (high heat for gas); see grilling procedure.

Discard marinade and pat steaks dry. Oil grill rack, then grill steaks, covered only if using a gas grill, turning occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes total for medium-rare. Let rest on a plate, uncovered, 10 minutes. Cooks’ notes:*Steaks can be marinated up to 8 hours.

*Steaks can be cooked in a hot oiled 2-burner grill pan over medium-high heat.

Here are some tips from our butchers to get the best from your beef:
  • Keep it cool. Aim to store it below 41˚F.
  • Pull your steaks out of the fridge about 20 minutes prior to cooking to bring them to room temp.
  • Pat dry with paper towels before cooking to prevent moisture from coming between the meat and the surface of the pan or grill.
  • Flip your steak only once-with tongs!
  • Steaks cut 1¼ inches thick grill best over medium-low coals (325˚F surface temp).
  • Steaks cut 1½-2 inches thick grill best when seared and finished by indirect heat in a closed grill.
  • Cook your steaks to medium-rare. Pull steaks from the grill at 140˚F internal temperature; let rest five minutes before serving.
