Labor Day Grilling and Giveaway

The official end to our wonderful Summer, Labor Day, is almost here. Sadly, days at the beach or swimming in the pool will end until next year, but grilling season will last a little longer. Do you have a Labor Day get together planned? Today I’m sharing a mouthwatering recipe for Southwestern Steak served with Bush’s Sweet Mesquite Grillin’ Beans.

The Southwestern seasoning flavors with chili powder, cumin and cilantro gives the steak a rich flavor. And the Sweet Mesquite Beans that are simmered with onions and red peppers in a sweet and smoke sauce go perfectly with the steak.

Over the last several months, I’ve been sharing the different Bush’s Grillin’ Beans with you, they also have Smokehouse Tradition, Southern Pit Barbecue, Bourbon and Brown Sugar, Steakhouse Recipe, Texas Ranchero, Black Bean Fiesta that we served with the Cowboy Burger, and the Sweet Mesquite. Visit Bush’s Beans for helpful grilling tips, new bold recipes, and meal ideas.
