Beef is a staple that most of us only know how to do so much with. Lucky for you, now there's an array of options that will get a different dinner on the table every single night. From keto to casseroles, the possibilities are endless.

Best Beef Stroganoff

“This was the best beef stroganoff recipe I've made. It was so easy and quick, which is key. I used fresh sliced mushrooms (white and crimini) in place of the canned mushrooms!”


Cuban Ropa Vieja

This Cuban dish literally translates to “old clothes” because the shredded beef reminds people of tattered, threadbare clothing. The dish tastes nothing like cloth, though — the beef is fork tender and the tomato sauce is complex with typical Cuban seasonings, like cumin.

Mahogany Beef Stew

"This was a terrific stew! The flavors went so well together, we loved it. I had served it over some garlic mashed potatoes. Yummy!”


Easiest Beef Enchiladas

“I added a bit of garlic powder and cumin to the meat. My family can’t get enough! I’ve already made these twice this week.”

-Punky Julster

Slow-Cooker Beef Short Ribs

“Best short ribs recipe ever! It’s so flavorful and easy to make. Once the ribs were cooked I removed them from the sauce, strained the sauce and removed the grease from the sauce. I then added the onions back to the sauce and used an immersion blender to make a wonderful gravy that did not need any additional thickener.”


Beef Tips

“This was delicious! It was very easy to prepare, smelled great while it was simmering, and my family of three ate the entire thing.”

-Curtis P.

"It Don't Get Better Than" Baked Beans

-Seattle Lori

Ground Beef Gyros

“What a terrific recipe for Gyros! I wanted to use ground beef as ground lamb is so expensive and hard to find around here. You couldn’t tell the difference in taste! I think the oregano and garlic were the key, and the cucumber sauce was delish.”


Zucchini & Ground Beef Casserole

“This is so simple to make and tastes great. I added garlic and served it over penne pasta with a salad and garlic bread. A very enjoyable meal.”

Kelly's Southwestern Beef Stew

“I loved this. I left out the potatoes and served it over mashed potatoes. It was so good, I’ll definitely make this again!”



“This dish has excellent flavors. I used my homemade sauce and the cheese oozed out into the sauce which made it even better! I served it with spaghetti, salad and hot Italian bread.”

Marinated Flank Steak

“Absolutely delicious! I’d never had a flank steak before, but I gave it a whirl. It was as tender as filet mignon. I marinated it for about two hours and cooked it on a gas grill for about ten minutes for rare. I added a good squeeze of lemon juice as well and it was delicious.”
