All hail the cow. Beef's intense flavor - earthy richness cut with a pleasant mineral tang - makes it the perfect centerpiece in a variety of dishes, since it can hold its own against bold tastes. Beef recipes call for a wide range of different cuts and price points. You can make a hearty beef stew from relatively inexpensive cuts, but a prime rib is going to cost you. Don't forget about roast beef recipes - there's nothing like a pot roast or brisket for a Sunday supper. Ground beef, too, has its place in the kitchen. It's the star of family meals like Sloppy Joes, spaghetti with meat sauce, taco night and many types of casseroles. Higher fat content (15 to 20 percent) is best if you're making burgers, otherwise, leaner blends will give you all the flavor you need.

A full-bodied beef stew, cooked slow to develop its flavors, is simple meat-and-potatoes fare at its height.
