Nothing says summer quite like the smell and sound of real beef sizzling on the grill, and there’s no better time to enjoy a juicy burger than on May 28 for National Beef Burger Day. While beef burgers are always a good idea, this year, the Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. brand, funded by the Beef Checkoff, partnered with National Day Calendar to designate May 28 as National Beef Burger Day and create a special occasion for families across the country to come together and celebrate their love of real beef burgers.
“Americans love burgers and there’s no substitute for a real beef burger sizzling on the grill,” said Alisa Harrison, senior vice president of Global Marketing and Research at the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff. “National Beef Burger Day is a delicious way to celebrate the start of summer and recognize the farmers and ranchers working hard to keep beef on grills and dinner tables across the country.”
National Beef Burger day, previously known as National Hamburger Day, is all about honoring America’s favorite grilling protein – beef! According to Google, hamburgers were one of the most searched recipes in the last month, and that makes sense because today’s consumers are eating beef more frequently than ever before. More than 95 percent of consumers are eating beef, and more than 70 percent of consumers say they are consuming beef at least weekly or more, according to the Consumer Beef Tracker managed by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association, a contractor to the Beef Checkoff.
If you hear a sizzle and your mouth begins to water, it just might be National Beef Burger Day! On May 28th and all summer long, there’s no better time to enjoy a juicy beef burger. The day is all about kicking off the grilling season and honoring America’s favorite grilling protein – beef!
A beef burger starts with real ground beef on a bun or between two slices of bread. And don’t forget the toppings like cheese, onions, pickles, and condiments. Each one allows for the perfect customization – the mouthwatering possibilities are endless. Of course, some of us like ours double stacked, and others prefer them spicy. Add those seasonings, too, if you want. What’s really important is what’s in the middle – that delicious beef burger.
