In my house, we always grill steaks for dad on Father's Day. The secrets to making a steak dinner a healthy one are simple: it's all a matter of buying the right cuts of beef and making sure portions aren’t outrageous.

Healthier Cuts

Lighter cuts of beef include flank steak, top loin, sirloin, T-bone, filet mignon, and tenderloin. Trim off any visible fat before adding your marinade or rub. Grilling your steak will also allow even more fat to drip off.

Aim for 6-ounces of raw steak and get rid of that bottled sauce. Flavor the steak using fresh herbs, spices, fruits, veggies and other wholesome ingredients. Make a batch of Dana's Spicy Montreal Steak Seasoning and send the other dads home with their own jar.
