Father’s Day is June 20 and Strack & Van Til knows what dad really wants: A great meal and someone else to man the grill.
Start your barbecue with the juiciest pub burgers in Northwest Indiana. You’ll find them in the Meat Department at your local Strack & Van Til store.
Choose from a variety of tasty, dad-approved varieties, including Bacon Cheddar, Swiss Mushroom, Mozzarella Italian, Pepper, Blue Cheese and more. Throw them on the grill, listen to them sizzle and watch your pop’s mouth water. All pub burgers are made fresh daily in the Meat Department.
Prefer your own burger creations? Craft them from high-quality Certified Angus Ground Chuck or Certified Angus Ground Round, available in the Strack & Van Til Meat Department and ground fresh throughout each day.
“Our Certified Angus Ground Chuck is rich and flavorful and makes outstanding burgers,” notes Meat Department Director Gary Teachman. “If you’re looking for something leaner, choose our Certified Angus Ground Round, which is just as delicious.”
Complete dad’s Father’s Day meal with crowd-pleasing fresh salads and sides from the Strack & Van Til Deli Department.
Try new Zesty Pickle Campanelle, a salad that includes zesty diced pickles, cheddar cheese and Campanelle pasta blanketed in a light creamy dressing.
Windy City Sweet Pepper Salad is made with fresh green, yellow and red bell peppers with tender orzo pasta in a light and flavorful dressing.
Seafood lovers will savor the Deli Department’s Bang Bang Shrimp and pasta salad. This tasty recipe features tender shrimp, sweet imitation crab, crisp celery, water chestnuts and seashell pasta dressed in creamy sweet chili garlic aioli and a splash of lime.
Bloody Mary pasta salad includes Cavatappi pasta with tomato, celery, green olives and pepperoncini blended with the perfect Bloody Mary spices.
For a real treat, try Korean Noodle Salad. Angel hair pasta is blended with green onion, red bell pepper and gochujang, a sweet and spicy dressing made with red chili peppers.
If dad likes a bit of spice, he’ll love the Deli Department’s sour cream and cheddar mac with jalapeños salad. This creamy, cheesy side is a customer favorite, and the diced jalapeños add a bit of heat.
“Your dad might prefer our classic sides, like our potato salad varieties including Our Own Homestyle potato or mustard potato, deviled egg potato, premium potato or steakhouse,” says Deli Department Director Kristin Snow. “Many dads enjoy pasta salads. Serve him Asiago, spinach and pasta with fresh spinach and pine nuts, or Caprese pasta salad with fresh mozzarella.”
Other popular sides available in the Strack & Van Til Deli Department include coleslaw options such as creamy, vinegar and oil, or summer slaw with fresh tomato and green pepper. And don’t forget to treat dad to traditional baked beans or Texas-style with a mixture of white, dark red kidney, red, lima and butter beans.
Whether you call him daddy, pops or papa, there’s nothing like celebrating him with great grilling options and all the fixings for Father’s Day from your local Strack & Van Til Food Market.
Enjoy and Happy Father’s Day!
