Recipe: May is NC Beef Month

By on May 10, 2018

Steaks on the grill, beef stew, burgers, pot roast… There are hundreds of ways to celebrate May as N.C. Beef Month. 

In North Carolina, there are more than 830,000 cattle, which provide us with a variety of food, leather and other products. Cattle is raised in all 100 counties throughout the state. Nine out of ten U.S. households serve beef at least once every two weeks.

Cattle farms generate more than $255 million in cash receipt, making the beef industry an important part of North Carolina’s agriculture industry.

To get everyone ready for N.C. Beef Month, we worked with five area bloggers to visit beef producers at Triangle farmers markets, give a short farmer profile and create a recipe from their beef. We’ve summarized the delicious results below. Click on the recipes below for more details on the farms and markets, as well as detailed recipes.

    Thanks for featuring our Beef Promotion! So much delicious food and so many passionate and dedicated farmers! One note on my recipe–I used a whole chuck roast and not ground. Cooking it in the pressure cooker allows it to be easily shredded. So good!
