Giveaway: Five copies of The New Steak: Recipes for a Range of Cuts plus Savory Sides by Cree LeFavour Find it: Available at Amazon.com for $14
Steak is not the most popular "eating-in" cut of meat these days; people shy away from the expense and the perceived difficulty of cooking it well. Author Cree LeFavour wants to change that, and in her book The New Steak: Recipes for a Range of Cuts plus Savory Sides (Ten Speed Press) she has a splendid array of in-depth tips, tricks, and ideas for getting the perfect steak and a new set of sides to go with it. Our favorite so far? Use soy, fish, and chili sauces for a well-balanced marinade. Yum!
We're actually doing a double shot today on Cree. We've got more of her top tips for grilling grass-fed beef coming in our email this afternoon. Not signed up yet? Sign up here then jump below to enter our giveaway.
Where would grilling be without an instant-read thermometer? Admit it - most of us aren't used to cooking meat over an open fire or hot coals, and our sense of timing is a little thrown off.

Today the Beef Board and their $1 Beef Checkoff are giving us five meat thermometers for five readers and their grilling efforts. Read on to see how you can win one!
