In case you haven't noticed yet, we're focusing on beef this week. March is Meat/Un-Meat Month, so we'll get to other sorts of animal protein (although we're leaving seafood for later in the year). But for now... Beef. We want to know all about your favorite way to eat beef. It's a rare treat for some of us, while others eat it several times a week. Here are a few common ways to eat beef. Is your favorite on the list? If not, tell us what it is. And if you have a best recipe for one of these ideas, please tell us that too!
My personal favorite ways to eat beef, especially since I don't eat a lot of it, are a good steak and a simple beef stew. One good steak is a great way to feed several people an excellent dinner with remarkably little work. (See this post for reasons why steak can actually be very economical.)
And beef stew is really a recipe-less recipe; I can make beef stew for a crowd and scarcely have to think at all.
