Let’s get to it, shall we?
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we love any reason to celebrate – especially when it comes to the kitchen! And May being National Beef month is no exception to that rule! Check out these 20 Bold Beef Recipes from our HLB Members to get your Beef Month celebrations going strong in your meal plan this month!
Sweet & Spicy Beef Tacos from Peanut Butter & Peppers // The tacos are made with a thinly sliced Top Round Beef that has been marinating in soy sauce, crushed garlic and chili paste. Topped with a sweet and spicy mango salsa on a bed of coleslaw mix. It is an amazing combination of flavors. To keep it healthy I served it in a corn tortilla.
Chili Beef and Eggplant Lettuce Cups from My Capital Plate // I loved how the eggplant effectively ‘bulked’ out the meat component of the dish, while adding lots of flavour and texture. And while I normally tend to roast eggplant, this turned out to be a nice alternative cooking method. I was a tad sceptical at first that the eggplant would be cooked, but after 10 minutes or so in the pan it had softened beautifully.
Grain-free Curry Beef Bowl from The Almond Eater // This Curry Beef Bowl is Whole30 compliant and features cauliflower rice, red peppers and red curry-marinated beef. It’s a good one, and ready in under 30 minutes!
Beef Bourguignon from Prevention RD // I did a bit of research and decided to go all out, swapping brisket for the stew beef. I trimmed it up really well and let the braising do the magic. A whole bottle of Malbec, mushrooms and onions galore, and the most tender beef make this a holiday-worthy treat that will warm your soul. A 5-star meal, for sure!
Corned Beef and Cabbage Quesadilla from Sinful Nutrition // Corned Beef & Cabbage Quesadilla — A corned beef sandwich recipe made with your dinner meal leftovers, swiss cheese, and tangy mustard pressed into pita bread.
Instant Pot Cuban-Style Shredded Beef from Amee’s Savory Dish // Instant Pot Cuban-Style Shredded Beef is a delicious nutrient-packed meal made with lean beef to keep you satisfied and energized for hours!
Enchilada Beef Rollups from Shugary Sweets // Enchilada Beef Roll Ups are a delicious meal idea. Packed with beef, enchilada sauce, and cheese, your family will love this tasty dinner!
Paleo Slow Cooker Mississippi Beef from Melissa Joulwan’s Well Fed // For this healthy but still irresistible approach, you’ll make a quick homemade ranch dressing and use potato starch to create a natural gravy. The butter is replaced with a modest amount of ghee for flavor without gluttony. The result is meat so tender, it falls apart when you look at it. Serve alongside crisp green beans and mashed cauliflower (or potatoes) for a meal that’s pure comfort.
Almost-One-Pot Beef and Veggie Bowl from Hello to Fit // Like all recipes, this one is open to creativity (or just what you have available). Not a fan of carrots? Omit or substitute! Have fresh tomatoes in addition to sauce? Feel free to toss them in there.
Asian Beef Meatballs from Peanut Butter & Jillie //I consider them the filling of a dumpling without the dough packaging that helps transport a meaty filling down into the tummy. They’re juicy, salty, slightly sweet from the scallion and are the perfect addition any stir fry or noodle dish. And as if I didn’t need to sell them even more, they’re Whole30 friendly. YUP.
Shaved Ribeye Mongolian Beef from Powered by Bling // Recreating a favorite restaurant dish at home is a great way to control the ingredients.
Shepherd’s Casserole (Pie) with a Twist from Be Healthy! // This recipe is healthier, and tastier, than the regular Shepherd’s Pie as it has pumpkin in the topping instead of just white potatoes.
Sesame Carrot Noodles with Beef, Broccoli, and Asparagus from Barr & Table // The best part of this recipe is that it is equally as delicious without the added beef and because we’re using black bean pasta, it has a whopping 17g protein before adding any extra protein on top! I’m kind of in love with the black bean pasta; it really doesn’t have any distinct flavor so it’s perfect for adding any kind of delicious sauces.
Parmesan Crusted Stead and Potato Sheet Pan Dinner from Lemons and Zest // Dinner on one pan with this Parmesan Crusted Steak and Potato Sheet Pan Dinner means simple and delicious dinner without the extra dishes! Juicy flank steak and crispy potatoes served with asparagus. A full meal on one pan!
Beef Barley Soup from Frolic Through Life // Even though it seems like Beef Barley Soup takes forever to cook, it is a very easy recipe. Once you throw everything in the pot and bring it to a simmer, you don’t have to check on it much until it’s time to put in the barley. I put the soup on and was able to get a bunch of chores done before returning to a kitchen smelling of yummy soup.
Homemade Beef Jerky from Frisky Lemon // Sunday was jerky day at my house. We ventured through the rain to Whole Foods to pick up some beautiful meat to jerkify.
from 110 Pounds and Counting // We halved the recipe for just the two of us so we used half of a large onion instead of two large onions. I could have used more onion so I think in the future we’ll use the whole onion…I topped the steaks with just a little bit of additional cheese so it had the texture of the crumbles too. I was glad I added the broccoli because it went nicely with all the other flavors (I used Goddess Dressing on my broccoli).
Rosemary Dijon Beef Cheeks from Lefty Spoon // We ate our braised beef cheeks over egg noodles, but they’d be great with mashed potatoes, roasted root vegetables, or a batch of polenta too. Oh, and if you can’t find (or don’t want to use) cheeks, feel free to substitute short ribs, brisket, shanks, or any other tough cut of beef or lamb suited to slow cooking
Easy Meatloaf from The Daily Mel // I know a lot of people like a brown gravy with their meatloaf. I grew up in the South and it’s all about the tomato sauce topping there. This one was really easy to make because it started with condensed tomato soup.
Crispy Beef Over Cauliflower Rice from The Berger Bungalow // I saw an Asian-inspired beef recipe on Pinterest a while back and decided to use it as inspiration to create my own recipe that fit Ian’s diet needs, so that is how I came up with this Keto-friendly Crispy Beef Over Cauliflower Rice!
