Popular Beef Recipes

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.

Meatloaf

The addition of richly flavored dried mushrooms and the whole-grain goodness of bulgur increases the vitamins and minerals and decreases the saturated fat of this meatloaf. The loaf is free-form, rather than baked in a loaf pan, which means more delicious, browned crust. This recipe is large enough to feed a big group or, even better, have leftovers for a cold sandwich the next day.

Blueberry-Beef Burgers

Whatever the season, burgers remain America's favorite sandwich. When it is too cold to grill outdoors, broil the patties or use an indoor grill. In addition to the standard fixings--ketchup, salsa, onions and tomatoes--make your burgers more nutritious by adding dark greens, such as watercress or spinach.

French Country Beef Stew

In France, this classic stew made with beef, vegetables and red wine would be known as a daube. Slow-cooking the surprisingly lean beef shanks melts and softens the connective tissue, producing succulent results. If you prefer, use nonalcoholic wine. Serve with barley to soak up the delicious sauce.
