The next time you’re looking for a dinner to try, take a look at one of these tasty beef recipes to make the family! Do you cook more Beef, Chicken, or Pork recipes for your family? If you are anything like me, you are always looking for new recipes to try on your family. And be sure to browse my list of 50 ground beef recipes you can try too!
Beef is a great family dinner staple! It’s usually easy to find it on sale, and if you can get it in bulk, you can freeze it for a long time – even after it’s cooked!
What are all the ways that you can cook beef?
Beef is a really versatile protein that can be cooked in so many different ways. It can be steamed, sauteed, baked, fried – and more.
I love using beef in the slow cooker and Instant Pot because they’re two of my favorite appliances. It’s amazing to see all the different tastes and textures that you can use just by altering ingredients and adding in other flavors.
Do you need fresh or frozen beef?
I would say that most of these recipes would be fine with using fresh OR frozen beef, but always read what the recipe creators suggest first.
When I use ground beef in recipes, I typically thaw it from frozen as I keep our freezer stocked and ready for meals throughout the year. Gotta buy that beef when I see it on sale at the store!
Can you overcook beef?
Absolutely. If you cook beef too long, it can become dry and crumbly. A higher fat content beef is harder to overcook, but it’s still done.
The best way to not overcook beef is to follow the recipe as it is written and follow the steps carefully. Do this, and they should turn out and be delicious.
