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 <a href="/recipes/beef/stew/popular/">beef stew</a> from relatively inexpensive cuts, but a <a href="/recipes/beef/prime-rib/popular/">prime rib</a> is going to cost you. Don't forget about <a href="/recipes/beef/roast/popular/">roast beef recipes</a> - there's nothing like a pot roast or <a href="/recipes/beef/brisket/popular/">brisket</a> for a Sunday supper. <a href="/recipes/beef/ground/popular/">Ground beef</a>, 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 <a href="/recipes/burgers/hamburgers/popular/">burgers</a>, otherwise, leaner blends will give you all the flavor you need.
