Lean Beef Week - Beef It's What's For Dinner and a $100 Visa Card Giveaway


It's BEEF Week at our house.

I was contacted by the National Beef Cattleman's Association and in conjunction with their Beef It's What's For Dinner website to participate in their Lean Cut Match-Up. We will be eating BEEF for dinner this week and reporting back on the recipes we have tried. And 2 lucky readers will each be receiving a swag bag including a $100 Visa Giftcard, an insulated and reusable shopping tote, and a I Love Lean Beef apron. Yea!!



First up for the Lean Cut Match-Up, I filled out the Lean Cut Match-Up questionnaire to match my family with the lean cut of beef that fits our lifestyle. I was happy to hear we are a Filet Mignon type of family. I typically buy a whole beef tenderloin when it is on sale (at the very affordable price of $5.99 per pound) and either cut it into individual filet mignons or roast or grill it whole. I will be preparing 2 recipes using filet mignon this week from the Beef It's What's For Dinner website.

To join in the BEEF Week fun, visit the Interactive Meat Case on the Beef It's What's For Dinner website to learn more about the variety of nutritious and satisfying beef cuts available, plus find cut descriptions, recipes, cooking tips and more. I enjoyed perusing this feature of the site because I get in a cooking rut sometimes and it introduced me to some new cuts of meat and recipes to try with them.

During the week, I will be posting the recipes I have prepared and my family's review of them. To participate in each of the giveaways, after each of my posts about the recipes I have made, fill out the Lean Cut Match-Up questionnaire and leave a comment on which cut of lean meat matches up with your family. One winner will be chosen each of the 2 days to receive the swag bag. So check back this week to enter the giveaway.

Let the BEEF Week begin!!

Disclosure: The Beef Association and the Beef Checkoff provided the swag bags mentioned above for this giveaway. Dinners for a Year and Beyond was also compensated with a giftcard to help offset the costs of groceries related to recipes being prepared for these blog posts as well as shipping costs associated with mailing prizes to the winners. The recipes were also provided by the Beef Checkoff.

We are a Top Round family, which is sad because I never have any success with Top Round. I guess I haven't found the right way to marinate it! But I bet YOU can help me and I'm about to go thru your recipes again! Thanks!

Wow. They've got a lot of good recipes on their site. Thanks for the link.

My results were "Top Sirloin"; which is odd, I usually buy Hanger steak or hamburger.

Our choice wasn't any one in particular, so I'm looking forward to the different recipes this week.

We are a Filet Family as well :-) My kid's LOVE it. I like to stuff it with a mild Blue Cheese and then saute Mushrooms, add beef stock, port wine and a touch of fresh chopped rosemary and a tab of butter, pour over the stuffed pan seared filets and you have a WOW meal in minutes.
