Foam finger? Check. Loaded cooler? Check. Grill? Check. Tailgating food that really scores?


The California Beef Council (CBC) wants to help you select the winning line-up of game day recipes that are perfect for the parking lot. According to a recent study, 61 percent of people polled prefer to cook ground beef outside on the grill1 and because beef and tailgating make an excellent team, stick to classics like Burgers with Grilled Onions. You can crank up the heat with Fiery Beef Satay Skewers, or change it up with a “Hail-Mary” dish like Beef Steak & Potato Kabobs.

If your tailgate party resembles a third-string JV quarterback rather than a first round draft pick, the CBC can help you Beef Up Your Tailgate this fall and make your parking lot party the MVP of the season. Connect with the CBC on Facebook and enter the Beef Up Your Tailgate contest for a chance to win a portable grill, gift box of beef, “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner.” grill set and The Healthy Beef Cookbook.

The contest runs August 1- 21 2011, so be ready to get cook on! We here at GreatTaste are getting some practice in just in time for the contest and for FOOTBALL SEASON (finally).
