To help celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday, the beef checkoff is celebrating I Heart Beef Month with some “hearty” survey findings, recipes for a romantic evening at home and beef preparation advice and tips. We hope that you will consider the following information and recipes for your Valentine’s Day and many days after.
According to the latest survey fielded by Pelegrin Research Group on behalf of the beef checkoff, Americans are taking their love of beef to the next level – nearly twice as many Americans choose beef versus chicken when asked which satisfies them as much as chocolate does! Additionally, Americans are four times more likely to show their love for beef (and their significant other) by serving steak this Valentine’s Day versus other protein options like chicken, pork or seafood. And they’re not just flirting with beef on Valentine’s Day; they are ready to explore this sizzling protein in new and delicious ways year round. Survey findings can be found in the press release and survey fact sheet in our Newsroom.
