{Giveaway Closed} Father's Day & Nielsen-Massey Vanillas

{Giveaway Closed} Congratulations to Fiona N. name was drawn via rafflecopter 6/19/12!

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 17, 2012, are you having a BBQ or grilling for Dad?

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 70.1 million fathers across the nation. That means 70.1 million colorful ties, tool kits, and golf clubs purchased every Father’s Day. This year, try something new: enjoy the summer weather and break out the grill to give dad a personal gift with a tasty twist.

Add flavor to his favorite steak or BBQ meal with Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. Family owned and operated Nielsen-Massey has been creating quality vanilla and pure flavor products since 1907. They are a great addition to a summer BBQ, pairing well with meats, veggies, and even summer cocktails. While vanilla extract may seem like it belongs in mom’s baking cabinet, vanilla can become a go-to ingredient for dad’s BBQ too.

Surprise dad this year by adding a unique vanilla twist to his favorite meal. The Kona Rubbed Steak recipe below is a great place to start.



Kona Rubbed Strip Loin

(8) 6 oz New York strip steaks

Marinade
1 qt. Kona coffee, brewed extra strong and chilled
1/4 cup Kona coffee grounds
1/2 cup chipotle peppers
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Coffee Extract
6 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
3 shallots, peeled and chopped
4 sprigs of thyme, chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 bunch scallions
1 cup salad oil

Combine all of the solid ingredients in a food processor and blend. Slowly add the coffee and salad oil and blend until all of the ingredients are combined. Cover the steaks in the marinade and cover with plastic wrap so the marinade covers the entire surface area of the meat. Marinate for at least 4 hours. After marinating, remove and dry off the steaks. Season with salt and pepper, and grill to your desired temperature
