Beringer Vineyards is hosting its second annual Great Steak Challenge, with a grand prize of $25,000. Making the cut of 10 finalists competing for it gets you an expense-paid trip to Napa for a grill-off, hosted by Food Network celebrities, Jamie and Bobby Dean, sons of southern cooking specialist and cooking-show host, Paula Deen.
Entrants can also win a chance to be included in a virtual cookbook the Deens will compile based on their favorite recipes from the competition.
Entry deadline is July 14. To enter, submit your most creative steak recipes at the Great Steak Challenge. Recipes are judged on taste appeal, wine pairing and simplicity. From there, 30 entrants advance to round two, and send in a homemade video highlighting their recipe pairing and grilling skills. Ten finalists from that bunch win a trip for two to Napa Valley for four days and three nights, and a spot on the final grill-off in early October, filmed to air on the network’s Cooking Channel.
So get busy grilling. You can buy a lot of steaks for $10,000.
