New Easter Traditions
This Easter while the kids are visiting Peter Cottontail and hunting for colorful eggs, why not pop a roast in the oven? Not just any roast will do though. Impress your family and friends with a new tradition and a beautiful beef roast.
Although roasting may require a bit more time, it really is a simple method because it requires little attention. And the flavor you get from that beef roast is distinctly different than any other cooking method. So break away from the mold and serve one of these roast recipes from the beef checkoff:
- Lemon-Herb Beef Roast is a refreshing dish served with red-skinned potatoes, carrots, onions and zucchini.
- Chili-Crusted Tri-Tip Roast will surprise your guests with flavors of chili powder and cumin.
- Ribeye Roast with Dijon Crust and Roasted Green Beans will hold its own among any side dishes your guests may bring to the table.
Make sure you check out Roasting Guidelines, courtesy of the beef checkoff, for fool-proof times and temperatures no matter which roast you choose. And don’t forget that your awe-inspiring roast will need to be carved, so make sure to watch a video on Oven and Pot Roasting.
And for more great meal ideas, visit the checkoff-funded Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. website.
Checkoff to Visit DFA Meeting
Later this month, your beef checkoff will visit the Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) annual meeting and trade show in Kansas City, Mo., to share beef checkoff information with dairy producers.
To see when and where your checkoff representatives will be, visit the calendar of events.
