    "The following items or measurements
    are not included below:
    cube steaks"

    No matter what cut of beef I add (stew meat, round steak, steak, beef...) it will not include the beef in the nutritional information

    When you post a recipe, do you ever see a yellow highlight over the listed food and a question mark? It says something like "Not what you meant"?

    If you click on the food it show up on, it takes you to a whole list of ingredients similarly worded to the one you are posting. Your problem might be as simple as the word "steaks" rather than "steak" or it might be "cube beef steak/s". I have trouble knowing if low fat is low fat or low-fat and is it fresh ground black pepper or freshly ground black pepper.

    It's very sensitive or not particularly smart LOL but once you understand it, you can usually find the exact, exact right phrase it will understand.

    It took me 8 years to figure out the yellow highlighted "not what you meant"? thingy, so not very user friendly but I'm guessing we are stuck with it.

    All those cuts of beef should be included.
    I can only think there's something odd about the way the quantity is posted.

    They aren't always. You sometimes have to work around the way the data base thinks. I've been posting recipes for 9 years and I know how the quantities work but as an Australian, I don't always know the right phrasing!

    I want the nutritional data and although it will let the thing I post through it doesn't show up in the data-so by checking via the "not what you meant" box I can find exactly the phrase Food.com will like so I can see the nutritional data. If you never have any trouble, you are way smarter than me.

    That's true. You do have to phrase it right.
    But all those cuts of beef are in the database.

    Just out of interest Chocolatl the bacon and beef in this recipe of yours aren't listed in the nutritional data http://www.food.com/recipe/ragout-of-beef-417314

    or the beef heart in this
    http://www.food.com/recipe/ragout-of-beef-417314

    or the chuck roast in this
    http://www.food.com/recipe/peleponnesian-pot-roast-355111

    They will post to the recipe (no red cross) because the computer recognises they are food, but they don't show in the nutritional data which is what the original poster is querying! You could find ways to word your ingredients slightly differently and yours would show up too no doubt.

    Fixed!

    A few ingredients were a case of me needing to remap since we updated our info from the USDA and then the chuck roast needed to be inputted a little differently. Hope it looks OK, tx!

    The first recipe of chocolatl's is now WAY out. I went and put in 1400g beef=(average fat, roast) and it came up about 70g fat in total. Your data is saying much, much higher than that and I know it's not right.
