About 2:00 every afternoon, my 9 year old son asks, “Mom, what's for dinner?”
Too much of the time I respond, “Umm… I don't know yet. Any good ideas?”
Can you relate to this scenario?
I'm a total foodie, so even though I have a number of stand-by recipes, I like to experiment in the kitchen. I enjoy new recipes, flavors, and exciting spice combinations. Often I don't know what I'm going to make because I don't want to use a stand-by recipe, but something that tantalizes my tastebuds.
I usually have a freezer full of beef since we frequently—very frequently—purchase half of a locally raised grass-fed cow (I have 4 growing boys and a hungry hubby). We've found this to be the most affordable way to feed our family with healthy, nutritious meat. (Uncertain about the differences between grass-fed beef and your standard grocery store beef? Be sure to check out my post on grass-fed beef.)
Because our freezer is usually brimming with beef, I like to keep a ready arsenal of healthy beef recipes utilizing ground-beef, steak, and even roasts, so we can mix things up.
For this reason, I've put together this round-up of healthy beef recipes together for not only your enjoyment, but my inspiration as well!
Below you'll find a variety of beef recipes featuring different cuts of meat: ground beef recipes, steak, roasts, and soups & stews. There are more than 30 recipes in all—enough to have a different recipe every day of the month!
Next time you've got some meat thawed, but you still don't know “What's for Dinner?”, you know where to find the answer :)!
