What's For Dinner: Steak, Brussels Sprouts And Coffee Cake

Ring in the long weekend with this dinner menu

Not feeling inspired by your usual dishes? Here's what's for dinner.

It's been exactly 150 years since the end of the Civil War and the first Decoration Day, which eventually morphed into an official Memorial Day. It's a holiday when we pause to remember all who have given their lives to our country, but it also means the advent of summer, a long weekend and, often, a meal shared among friends. Whichever day you choose to celebrate, this dinner of bone-in rib eye, hashed Brussels sprouts and poppy seed coffee cake will give your guests something to remember.

① Main Course: Bone-In Rib Eye with Rosemary, Garlic and Thyme

Memorial Day is synonymous with grilling, but the weather is an unpredictable creature. Our master steak recipe can be done inside on a skillet, so you can have the ultimate rib eye even if it rains.

② Side Dish: Hashed Brussels Sprouts with Poppy Seeds and Lemon

After World War I, poppies became known as the remembrance flower. You should probably stear clear of its poisonous petals, but poppy seeds make an edible alternative. Served cold, this Brussels sprouts hash is a crisp, refreshing grilling side dish.

③ Dessert: Poppy Seed, Prune and Lemon Coffee Cake

Poppy seeds make a second appearance in dessert with this bespeckled coffee cake recipe from Brooklyn's Ovenly. Throw some fruit on the grill to accompany it, and you've got yourself a feast worth remembering. Bonus: Feed your guests the leftovers for breakfast the next morning.
