Father’s Day is a time for Dad to kick back and enjoy a great meal. Prepare his favorite steak or let him reign supreme as king of the grill. Either way, Father’s Day is a great reason to make beef the centerpiece of a meaningful meal celebrating Dad.

Note: A fully cooked steak will have reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit as verified by an instant-read food thermometer. Undercooking a steak heightens the risk of food-borne illness.

1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. Cook pasta according to package directions until al dente. Rinse under cold water and drain.

4. In a large bowl, combine carrots, celery, bell peppers, cucumber, tomatoes and basil. Add pasta and dressing and toss to combine. Cover and chill for 1 hour or overnight. Top with Parmesan cheese before serving.

5. In a small bowl, combine paprika, cumin, coriander, ginger and both peppers. Mix in olive oil to form a smooth paste. With the tip of a knife prick a few holes in the surface of the steaks. Rub paste on the surface of the beef, pushing into the holes. Wash hands again after handling raw steaks.

6. Coat grill grate with cooking spray and preheat to medium. Add steaks and grill to desired doneness, about 7 to 8 minutes per side for medium-rare to medium doneness. Remove from grill and place on a cutting board, let stand 4 minutes.

7. Serve garnished with rosemary and with pasta salad and additional dressing if desired.
