From Portland’s Blues Festival to Central Park’s Summer Stage, communities all across the nation offer free outdoor events during the summer and August is the perfect month to take your family to an evening concert on the lawn or outdoor movie event. Shake up your regular summer routine and spend some quality time with your family by enjoying a warm evening outdoors, some new music or a favorite movie, and a picnic dinner.
Our Slow Cooked BBQ Beef with Rustic Country Rolls travels easily from your kitchen to the park. Just cook in a slow cooker, unplug, and take it with you. Then fix the sandwiches and serve with a salad while you are waiting for the entertainment to start.
Our famous Herb Crusted Flank Steak also travels easily as it tastes great cold. Just grill or oven broil at home, slice, and let cool in the fridge. Then use it to top a salad of romaine lettuce, fresh tomatoes, parmesan cheese and Italian dressing or make delicious steak sandwiches on a focaccia roll spread with a bit of mayo and layered with arugula.
Check your community’s event calendar or local newspaper for free event listings!
