Beef’s Favorite Ingredient of the Month — Garlic
It’s almost garlic season! As spring arrives, we start to see fresh bulbs of pungent garlic at our stores and local farmer’s markets. What perfect timing as we begin to think about dusting off the grill and throwing some juicy steak on the grates.
Garlic can be used in so many different ways with beef…as a rub and as a marinade. For great seasonal flavors or ingredients be sure to check out the recipe search on the checkoff-funded BeefItsWhatsForDinner.com.

The first of five checkoff-funded beef nutrition videos is now on the Land of Lean Beef YouTube channel!

The video series, “Meat The Experts”, sets the record straight with a humorous tone that also encourages viewers to share with family and friends. Immediately on the heels of the launch of the BOLD study, the first video addresses Heart Health.
