May is Beef Month! And in my world, that’s cause for a pretty big celebration! Every May, KMZU radio in Carrollton, Mo. sponsors a radio contest. This May, we’re featuring last year’s top three winners. We hope you’ll enjoy these tried and true recipes from ladies across north central Missouri. The third place winner was Kari Lodder of Marceline, Mo., who brings us “Pinwheel Flank Steak!” Happy Beef Month to you and yours!
