Junior’s Meat Market, 17050 High Water Road, French Settlement, will hold a steak, pork chop and potato cooking contest 8-11:15 a.m. on June 27.
Ribeyes, T-bones or Porterhouses may be entered in the steak category. The pork chop category includes pork chops and pork steaks. Baked potatoes may be filled with anything.
The dish must be cooked on site the day of the cook-off and be ready to be judged at 11:15 a.m. All cooking utensils, tents, tables, pits, burners and other equipment must be provided by the cooks.
Some preparations, like marinades, may be made in advance.
Each cook must cook two entries — one for the judges and one for the cooks to test each others’ entries. Cooks will be given a hinged container to turn entries into the judges. Please supply a small cutting board with steak and pork chop entries.
There is a $20 entry fee for each category, and only 20 cooks will be allowed per category.
Cooks may have sponsors and sponsors may advertise or decorate their tables and tents. Registration forms are available at Junior’s Meat Market and Galvez Hardware and Outdoor Cooking. Money raised will go back to the cooks in the form of prizes.
Registration deadline is June 25.
