“May is Beef Month” in Montana and Wyoming, so while you are getting our your grill for Memorial Day weekend, take a minute to give thanks to the Producers who raise that safe and highly nutritious beef for consumers around the world to enjoy.

If you are looking for a little variety beyond hamburgers and spaghetti, you will want to try these two recipes from Montana Beef Industry Leaders Jimmy Taber of Shawmut and Kiley Martinell from Dell.
