Tailgating Brazilian Style

After a welcome from AHA leadership and a quick glimpse of how we can navigate our future from Kevin Ochsner, a Hereford Tailgate Party gave us all a taste of Certified Hereford Beef.

Local restaurants served signature beef dishes and we even got grilling lessons from master of the grill, Dr. Flavio Ribeiro, Brazilian meat scientist. We learned that the only seasoning you need is sea salt, easy technics to cooking on an open flame and slicing grilled steaks thin makes anything cut tender.

To become a grilling master yourself, listen to my interview with Dr. Ribeiro here: Interview with Dr. Flavio Ribeiro, Brazilian meat scientist
