Beef: It's What's For Dinner - The Giveaway

It's here! Today is the Beef: It's What's For Dinner Giveaway day.

Before we get to the giveaway I want to share links and a couple photos for other beef recipes we made this week.

Beef & Smoked Mozzarella Stuffed Focaccia with Pesto These were AWESOME! A real must-try.

Classic Fajitas Fajitas are always a favorite here, and these were delicious.

We also made Chili Beef Express, a tasty and fast chili.

On to the giveaway!

I have 3 copies of The Healthy Beef Cookbook up for grabs and one winner will receive a copy of the book and a $100 gift card to make their own beef recipe. Check out the cookbook at and look over the lean beef recipes section as well, you'll need some info from there to help you win!

The gift card has been earmarked for a food blogger, so if you have a blog and would like to win the cookbook AND the gift card, leave a comment with your favorite lean beef recipe from, your email address and your blog URL. The winner of the gift card will then use that gift card to purchase ingredients for a lean beef recipe from OR from The Healthy Beef Cookbook and blog about their experience.

I love the recipe for the garlic-herb roast. Sounds delicious! I might try to make it in the crockpot. Would love to win the cookbook. I do have a blog where I blog about food sometimes so I would also happily use the gift card to blog about a yummy beef meal too. Our family loves beef.


Thanks for the opportunity!
