If you like Thai curry then you’re probably going to love this super quick and easy-to-make dish: tender beef and fresh veggies simmered in a flavorful coconut-infused red curry…YUM!  I had a rib-eye in the freezer so I substituted it for the sirloin steak, and used light coconut milk. I also added some sliced mushrooms and onions […]

Grilled Rib-eye Steaks with Parsley-Garlic Butter

April 16, 2011 by andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in Beef, Grilling/BBQ, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes

A perfectly grilled rib-eye steak, in my opinion, is the epitome of meaty deliciousness. This is what I chose to make Husband recently as a “Congrats On Your New Job” meal. He lit up like a Christmas tree when I told him what we were having for dinner that night: a juicy, well-marbled steak nicely charred from the […]

October 27, 2010 by andrea | Comments Off on Pasta Bolognese | Filed in Beef, Italian, Main Dish, Pasta, Quick Cooking, Recipes

This recipe for Pasta Bolognese is from a chef at the Culinary Institute of America, the world’s premiere culinary college. It’s rich, hearty, meaty and a perfect pasta dish for these cool, autumn evenings. The recipe calls for 6 ounces of pancetta but my container only had 4 oz., so that’s what I used…I didn’t […]

Spicy Beef with Peanuts & Chiles

June 4, 2010 by andrea | 7 Comments | Filed in Asian, Beef, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes

This delicious beef stir-fry dish is everything I was hoping it would be! You get great flavor from the peanuts, soy sauce, fish sauce and lime juice, and a nice kick from the chiles. Yumm!   Changes I made to the recipe: I doubled the cilantro and omitted the basil, substituted red onion for the shallot, […]

Japanese Beef Bowl

April 12, 2010 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Asian, Beef, Quick Cooking, Recipes

I love Japanese food so I was intrigued when I saw this recipe for Japanese Beef Bowl. It’s a tasty stir-fry that only takes a few minutes to make — perfect for a weeknight meal. For beef stir-fry, I usually use a flatiron steak because it stays tender. For easy slicing, let the meat freeze for 20-30 […]

I love stir-fry dishes! They’re quick, easy to make, and a great way to eat more veggies.  My family is always thrilled to see beef on the menu so this meal was a hit (even with my Young Picky Eater). I particularly liked the sauce, which is flavored with hoisin sauce and sesame oil. To get […]

Make-Ahead Sweet & Sour Cocktail Meatballs

December 14, 2009 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in Appetizer, Beef, Pork, Recipes

Every party needs a few meaty appetizers to keep the festivities rolling. That’s why I brought these Sweet & Sour Cocktail Meatballs to a party recently. Sure, you can buy store-bought meatballs but I thought these were delicious and worth the effort to make (they are firmer in texture than some spongy, store-bought types). Plus, you can […]

Smoky Beef Tacos

November 4, 2009 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Beef, Main Dish, Mexican, Recipes

These smoky-flavored beef tacos are extremely easy and sooo good! I’ve made this recipe several times and no matter how much beef I cook up, we always wish I’d made more. The beef simmers for two hours in a chipotle-tomato sauce and emerges from the oven tender and delicious. Once you shred the meat, mix in some of the sauce […]
