40 Beefy Innovations

From the Ground Beef Recall to Beefy Bovine Art

— November 2, 2009 — Lifestyle
Oh, beef. If it didn’t exist, I could be a vegetarian. Even in spite of the ground beef recall, in which a half-million-pounds of beef was recently recalled from North Carolina to Maine due to the possibility of harmful e. coli, I still love it.

Inspired by the ground beef recall—which doesn’t make me love beef any less—here is a cluster full of beefy goodness that includes everything from cow contests to 120-ounce steaks.
