May is finally here, which means producers are in the midst of spring planting and getting the pairs and fences ready for summer grazing. May also means Beef Month, and we are celebrating on the blog with a recipe contest featuring beef. Each week, a winning recipe will be selected, and the champion chef will take home a $125 gift certificate for a pair of boots, courtesy of Roper Apparel.
This week, we kick things off with recipes featuring ground beef. In light of the controversy and media frenzy surrounding lean finely textured beef and BSE, let’s show consumers just how healthy, safe and versatile ground beef really is!
To enter, simply email me a recipe with corresponding photo of the dish to [email protected]
Entries will be accepted until Saturday, May 12, with winners to be announced on May 14. A new theme of the week will also be announced each Monday in May.
So, fire up the grill, slap on your apron and get creative in the kitchen. Bonus points for ideas that center around May holidays such as Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day!
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Good luck!
