The North Dakota Beef Commission hosted a grilling competition at the Grand Forks Air Force Base. Staff Sargent Steven Baxter was part of the winning team. “We had a German meatball with German potato salad and we went the Hawaiian pizza route, but I changed it up using plums rather than pineapple. The last dish was inspired from South America with a grilled, marinated steak with chimichurri, roasted corn and black beans.” Marvin Regorral’s team was the runner-up. “This was a great contest,” said Regorral. “We can’t say enough good things about them. We see many of the same folks every year’ they are very, very supportive.” NDBC Consumer Marketing and Industry Relations Specialist Nicole Wardner said this event demonstrates the appreciation seen for the military. “We also have a community here that isn’t just North Dakotans. They come from all over the country. It is a way for them to learn about the ranchers creating the product for them and the beef they consume.” This North Dakota Beef Commission ‘Iron Chef’-type event has been part of the Grand Forks Air Force Base Summer Bash since 2011.
