Another successful ‘What’s For Dinner’ Beef Cook-off in Nebraska

Kearney, Neb. – Dale Henderson of Lincoln took home the winning honors from the 6th annual River City Roundup “What’s For Dinner” Beef Cook-Off for his ‘Cream Steak’ recipe. In this case it wasn’t only an honor to win, but he took home a set of new Frigidaire appliances courtesy of the Nebraska Furniture Mart. A refrigerator, range, dishwasher and microwave are all his, thanks to this winning recipe.

‘Cream Steak’ is a petite top sirloin steak with a crushed black peppercorn rub. A creamy sauce that combines red wine, cream, green onions, garlic, butter and olive oil is warmed through and drizzled over the steak. Henderson noted that his mother made a similar recipe when he was younger and now his son asks for ‘Cream Steak’ often for dinner.

The five finalists’ entries involved in the contest were judged on taste, ease of preparation and appearance. Each contestant prepared their dish on the “What’s for Dinner” Cooking Stage sponsored by the Nebraska Beef Council. There are two basic criteria for this contest: contestants must submit recipes that can be prepared in 45 minutes or less with 8 ingredients or less.

Beef Certificate prizes were also awarded to the other finalist contestants in this years contest: Linda Spagnotti of Cedar Rapids, Karen Hall of Elm Creek, Steve Harley of Winnetoon, and LuAnn Schlinder of Ewing.

All of the winning recipes are posted on the Nebraska Beef Council website at
