WY FOODIE: Yummy Recipes from WY Beef Council

visit our website & read the current issue

A new series of great holiday recipes from our friends at the Wyoming Beef Council! We greatly appreciate all the hard work they do promoting the advantages of beef – a Wyoming agricultural staple and the income for many of our friends & neighbors!

As we begin to think about having guests over for the holidays, we can’t help but imagine all the wonderful possibilities. When it comes time for friends and family to gather ‘round your table, our holiday recipes will delight their senses—from the smell of a roast in the oven and the taste of cranberries to the sight of a hearty breakfast after a brisk morning walk in the snow.


Appetizers like Bite-Sized Sweet & Spicy Beef Ribs and Mini Meatballs with Apricot Dipping Sauce will wow your guests and start the event off right! They’ll be the perfect pairing with fruity holiday wines.

Mini Meatballs with Apricot Dipping Sauce: are made with lean Ground Beef and can be kept warm in a slow cooker. http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipe.aspx?id=4005

Beef and Couscous Stuffed Baby Bell Peppers: Tiny peppers are packed with Ground Beef, spinach and couscous for a colorful appetizer that’s easy on the waistline at only 35 calories each. http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipe.aspx?id=4921



Main courses like an awe-inspiring Classic Tenderloin with Cranberry Drizzle or a comforting North Woods Hearty Pot Roast will fill the bellies around the dinner table.

Crumb-Crusted Top Sirloin and Roasted Garlic Potatoes with Bourbon Sauce: Is just as glorious as a more expensive roast, but is easy to prepare and a breeze to carve. http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipe.aspx?id=197

Walnut-Crusted Roast with Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes only looks like it took you half a day to prepare. The simple walnut crust comes together quickly and the roast is placed in the oven for about two hours—the perfect amount of time to set the table. http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipe.aspx?id=1908


And finally if breakfast or brunch are more your style, serve a twist on a classic breakfast pastry with Beef Sticky Buns. For those busy mornings, a quick and easy Beef and cream cheese bagelwich will cross one more thing off your growing to-do list. Not to mention, adding protein to your morning meal will keep you satisfied longer.

WYOVORE: Welcome to our new Wy Foodie Blog!



Welcome to our new Wyovore WY Foodie Blog! When it came to creating our bookstore magazine, we chose the name “Wyovore” because we wanted it to reflect the craving we all having for Wyoming…a craving for scenery, history, culture, recreation, food, art…basically, big open skies & adventures and THE WEST. Hence our tagline:  We are Wyovores…What do you crave?

In our new blog series, we’re going to take a look at FOOD. We’re going to introduce Wyoming restaurants to you. We’re going to bring you recipes from Wyoming sources such as the Wyoming Beef Council. We’re going to share what specials & menu changes are happening out there with Wyoming eateries. We’ll explore craft beer and all things Wyoming wine and – and – and – well, you get the idea.

We have more in store from our Wyovore blogs, that will dive away from food and into the pools of other areas of Wyoming adventure… but for now… it’s time to get your mouth watering…

To begin with — need one more summer recipe to try? Here’s one from the Wyoming Beef Council that I imagine would go perfectly with a white wine and a comfy spot at the patio…

Grilled Steak and Fresh Mozzarella Flatbread

Steak meet salad.  Salad meet pizza.  A tasty introduction has been made.


Total recipe time:  20 to 25 minutes

Makes 4 servings



1 to 1-1/4 pounds beef Top Sirloin filets, cut 1 inch thick

1-1/2 teaspoons lemon pepper

2 cups packed fresh baby spinach

1/4 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (3/4 cup)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

1-1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

4 naan breads (Indian flatbread) or pita breads



  1. Press lemon pepper evenly onto steaks. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 12 to 17 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 12 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, combine spinach, cheese and basil in large bowl. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar; toss to coat and set aside.
  3. Remove steak from grill and let stand 5 minutes. Place naan on grill; grill, covered, 1 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.
  4. Carve steaks into slices. Top naan evenly with spinach mixture and steak slices.
