Kentucky Ag Connection - 05/12/2022

Entries are open for the American Angus Auxiliary-sponsored 39th All American Certified Angus Beef Cook-Off Contest. All interested contestants must enter by the May 15 deadline. The contest will be held July 5 at the 2022 National Junior Angus Show in Kansas City, Mo.

The Cook-Off Contest provides an opportunity for National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) members to display their knowledge of the beef industry and skills in the kitchen while enjoying friendly competition with fellow participants. All contestants must be members of the NJAA and each team must consist of two to six members of a state junior Angus association.

"We are excited to host the 39th All American Certified Angus Beef Cook-Off Contest, which serves as the oldest educational contest at NJAS," said Anne Lampe, American Angus Auxiliary Beef Education Committee co-chair. "The Cook-Off is not only a competition, but an opportunity for participants to learn about the Certified Angus Beefâ brand and develop skills to educate others about beef."

This annual contest allows NJAA members from each state to gather their best recipes, prepare a Certified Angus Beef beef dish and perform a skit to entertain and educate the audience. The cuts selected for this year's contest are as follows: the steak division is flank steak, the roast division is ball tip, and the other category is ground beef and will be the Ultimate Certified Angus Beef Burger Grill Off.

The contest will be divided into three age categories: 8-13; 14-17; and 18-21. All ages will be determined as of Jan. 1. Mixed teams may be entered but will be classified by the oldest member of the team. The contest will be judged by a panel of three judges. Winners in categories of showmanship and recipe, as well as overall excellence will be awarded special prizes.

New this year, the Cook-Off will present the Ardyce's Aprons award to the top-ranking junior team. The award is in memory of past American Angus Auxiliary president Ardyce O'Neil who served an instrumental role in creating the Cook-Off and served as its first chairman.

Please note there will be no Certified Angus Beef Chef's Challenge and no Certified Angus Beef at Home Contest this year.
