Get involved in Great British Beef Week, which returns for its eighth consecutive year on St George’s Day, Monday April 23, and will run until Monday April 30.
Organised by Ladies in Beef, the campaign highlights the advantages of eating beef as part of a healthy and balanced diet. Ladies in Beef is a group of more than 150 female beef farmers, founded by Jilly Greed and NFU president Minette Batters.
This year’s campaign focuses on the benefits of eating thin cut steaks, which are quick to cook and a great source of protein, iron, and eight essential vitamins and minerals. Throughout the week, Ladies in Beef will share recipes and cooking videos to shake up midweek meals with thin cuts.
