Summer Grilling is Here! Fire Up the Grill with These Tasty Beef Recipes Nothing says summer quite like the smell and sound of real beef sizzling on the grill Whether it means enjoying a grilled beef meal with friends that you havent seen for a while or spending quality time with family, beef can bring people together around the grill this summer.

While grilling season officially kicked off last month on National Beef Burger Day that was just the beginning, as people everywhere are excited to grill all summer long! This month we want you to continue joining summer grilling conversations and sharing your farming or ranching stories. We want your help to remind consumers around the country that beef farmers and ranchers will continue, as you always have, to work day-and-night to ensure that their families, as well as yours, can continue to enjoy the summer grilling season.

Check out some of these tasty Options:


1 pound Ground Beef (96% lean)
1/4 cup beer
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
4 slices reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
4 extra-thick slices Maplewood-smoked bacon, cut in half, cooked crisp

Combine Ground Beef, beer, and Worcestershire in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
Place patties in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160F, turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before burgers are done, place buns, cut-side down, on grid. Grill until lightly toasted. During last minute of grilling, top each burger with cheese.
Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
Place burgers on bottom of buns; top with bacon slices. Close sandwiches.


1 beef Flank Steak (about 1-1/2 pounds)
Balsamic Marinade:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon sugar

Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef Flank Steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.
Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 21 minutes) for medium rare (145F) to medium (160F) doneness, turning occasionally.
Season steak with salt and pepper, as desired. Carve steak crosswise into thin slices.
