Grilled steak and barbecue ribs are the sure-fire winners for a perfect meal for Dad, according to a new poll conducted by the American Meat Institute. More than four in 10 (42 percent) Americans chose steak and 14 percent chose barbecue ribs as the best dishes for dad on Father’s Day.   

According to the poll of 1,000 Americans on May 16, hamburgers (13 percent) rounded out the top three meals. Meat dishes dominated the top picks, while veggie burgers were selected by just 2 percent of respondents. Other meat picks that Dads love include barbecue chicken, grilled pork chops and grilled lamb chops.
