What defines a hero?  A hero is someone willing to risk their own self to help another.  Servicemen and women all over the country give their time and risk their lives everyday, so we can live ours.  Here at Earth Fare, we want to thank you for all that you do.

Come celebrate Heroes Weekend with us, June 30 from 11am to 3pm. Those who serve eat free! Those who appreciate their service have an opportunity to say “thank you.”

10 oz Earth Fare Ribeye steak
Earth Fare Organic Worcestershire Sauce
1Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
1tsp.Salt
1tsp. Pepper
Earth Fare Steak Sauce (optional)

Directions

  1. Fire up your grill, clean the grate, and give it time to get hot. How hot? Give it the hand test: pass your hand 5 inches above the grate. If you can only stand the heat for 2-3 seconds, the grill’s ready.
  2. Coat steak with Worcestershire Sauce 
  3. Rub steak with salt and pepper
  4. Cover one side of the steak with half of the butter 
  5. Place steak above heat source, butter side down
  6. Turn the steak after three minutes for medium rare steak (Butter the other side of the steak before turning).  Grill the other side for Three to five minutes as well
  7.  Remove the steak from the grill and let rest for 3 minutes before plating. 

That’s your basic steak, cooked dad style. Nothing fancy, just simple ingredients. Enjoy Dad’s Day!
