“Quick Weeknight Dinner” 2019 Beef Cook-off
The Utah Cattlewomen's Association along with the Utah Beef Council is proud to partner with the Utah State Fair in presenting the 2019 beef cook-off. Beef is a smart way to provide your family with the essential elements of zinc, iron, and protein. The versatility of beef makes it a great choice of protein that you can prepare for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack time. Beef supplies a wonderful flavor that, when combined with other seasonings, will give you that great “umami” experience!
All recipes must be submitted by September 2, 2019. Only the recipes selected as finalists will be available to participate in the finals held during the fair.
