Father’s Day Flank Steak with Pesto

What would dad like more than to spend a little quiet time time by the grill with an ice-cold beer in hand on Father’s Day? Let dad handle the flank steak (refilling his beer as needed, of course) while everyone else helps set the table and makes a flavorful arugula pesto to serve with the meat.

Arugula Pesto

Arugula pesto is a take on classic basil pesto. Combine arugula, macadamia nuts, olive oil, grated parmesan cheese, garlic and salt in the food chopper. The bright green pesto adds color and is a fresh, zesty complement to the grilled flank steak. Serve pesto-topped flank steak alongside a bright salad and dad’s drink of choice for the perfect Father’s Day meal.
