2013 National Beef Cook-Off

I had the esteemed honor of being a judge for the 2013 National Beef Cook-Off along with a few other lovely ladies; Barbara Kiebel of Creative Culinary, Kathy Moore who writes Plugged into Cooking and Kristen Browning-Blas who makes her home at The Denver Post.

We tasted 21 different beef dishes over 2 days and had to narrow them down to a winner in each category. Tough job, huh?

I wanted to share with you the links to the winning recipes and the Grand Prize winner.
