Well, it’s official! Gov. Bill Haslam has proclaimed July as Beef Month in Tennessee and encourages all citizens to join him in this celebration. In observance, kick-off your July Beef Month festivities with a patriotic Fourth of July celebration and continue to enjoy beef throughout the month.
“Beef is a valuable resource for the body,” said Jennifer Houston, Tennessee Beef Council Chairperson. “Beef is one powerful protein source and there are more than 29 nutritious, lean beef options to enjoy, such as T-Bone steak, Tenderloin and 95 percent lean Ground Beef. In addition to being an excellent source of protein, one 3-ounce portion of lean beef provides many essential nutrients including zinc, vitamins B12 and B6, niacin, selenium, phosphorus, choline, iron, and riboflavin while only contributing about 150 calories to the diet.”
Celebrate July Beef Month with one of these great recipes:
Delicious Ranch Burgers topped with Ranch dressing and crispy fried onions.
Firecracker Burgers topped with Cooling Lime Sauce.
Spicy Cheeseburger Sliders featuring pepper-jack cheese and chipotle pepper.
