Susan Patrick & Michaela DeWald win 2011 SD Beef Cook-Off competition

A tender, aroma-filled comfort food with a taste-twist and a refreshing, colorful, tangy salad took top prizes in this year’s South Dakota Beef Cook-Off during the recent State Fair in Huron. The winning entrées, Roast Beef Caribbean Style and Citrus Steak Salad, were indicative of the variety of dishes created by home cooks and featuring one of 29 lean beef cuts.

Susan Patrick, Watertown, SD, topped six competitors in the Cook-Off’s adult division – and took home $500 cash – with a chuck shoulder pot roast prepared in a cast iron Dutch oven. What set this recipe apart, said CattleWomen Cook-Off Chair Karla Pazour, was a braising mixture of interesting ingredients including ginger, habanero peppers and cinnamon. “This is not your grandmother’s pot roast,” said Pazour. “It has a subtle island-taste that still allows the beef flavor to be prominent. Roast Beef Caribbean Style proves that beef can fit into modern cuisines.” Patrick, the Lincoln Elementary school principal, said she used peppers from her brother-in-law’s garden. “If you prefer less heat,” she advised, “use jalapeno instead of habanero or peppers to your taste.”

On the lighter side, 15-year-old Michaela DeWald of Milbank, SD, put together her beef salad and the winning combination in the youth division against five other entrants, taking home a $250 cash prize. This ninth grader at Milbank High School is no novice when it comes to cooking. She won the Cook-Off’s youth division two years ago with her Western Beef and Corn Casserole. DeWald said she enjoyed this particular recipe, which included top sirloin steak, strawberries, goat cheese and Romaine lettuce. “I liked working with the various food groups,” said DeWald, adding that she has polished her competitive cooking skills through her involvement with the 4-H program’s Special Foods contests.



“Youth are our consumers of tomorrow,” said Pazour. “It is always amazing how capable our youth contestants are and the variety of recipes they come up with. This year, in addition to Michaela’s beef salad, we had everything in the youth division from a lasagna muffin to a complicated beef and spinach roll.”

For the second year in a row, the cook-off day also featured the Beef Basket Challenge, a beef-cooking contest between two celebrity South Dakotans. This year, Holly Hoffman, of TV’s Survivor fame, and her South Dakota legislator husband, Charlie Hoffman, vied against one another in a one-hour contest to see who could create the best beef entrée with a basket of surprise ingredients, including beef flank steak, provided them at the start of the contest. With spectators cheering them on, the Hoffmans, from Eureka, SD, bantered back and forth while slicing, dicing and cooking. Charlie’s braised flank steak won over his wife’s grilled beef kabob’s in a People’s Choice award.



“The Beef Cook-Off and the Beef Basket Challenge ultimately encourages the consumer to be more comfortable trying new beef recipes,” said Pazour. “And this year’s theme of ’29 Lean Cuts of Beef’ provided an opportunity to prove that there is a healthy beef cut and recipe for every meal solution.”

Patrick, the adult division winner, said her family eats a lot of beef and enjoys coming up with unique ways to use less expensive cuts like the chuck shoulder roast that pack a lot of taste and flexibility. While she and her husband, Jim, compete in outdoor cook-offs with their turn-of-the-century chuckwagon, this was the first time she entered the South Dakota Beef Cook-Off. “It was truly a surprise and an honor to win,” said Patrick.
