Beef It Up! Review

Beef It Up! 50 Mouthwatering Recipes for Ground Beef, Steaks, Stews, Roasts, Ribs, and More

By Jessica Formicola

I received a free copy of Beef It Up! from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Where’s the beef? It’s on the dinner table tonight! This focused collection of recipes offers 50 tasty ways to serve up protein-rich beef meals without a lot of fuss. Flavorful beef suppers (Cheeseburger Soup, Shepard’s Pie Mac & Cheese) are featuring along with new classics (Sheet Pan Steak Fajitas, 20-Minute Mongolian-style Beef ), salads (Southwest Steak Salad w/ Chipotle Ranch and Steakhouse Salad w/ Blue Cheese), quick hits (Empanada Hand Pies and Beef Satay with Peanut Sauce), and the tried-and-true burgers, steaks, and chili. Juicy photos provide the inspiration and confidence cooks of all levels need to deliver on the promise of a great meal every time.

Summary from Goodreads.

If you like beef, but are bored of having it exactly the same way every-time, then Beef It Up! will give you a variety of different meal choices to choose from.

Beef It Up! is split into 8 different chapters. The first focuses on beef knowledge, explaining the different cuts, how to store and handle the various different methods of cooking it. We then have chapters that focus on smaller beef dishes (like sweet & sour meatballs); hefty soups (like red wine beef stew); beef filled salads (like chopped beef salad with spicy peanut satay); mains (like beef and pea stroganoff); handheld foods (like the perfect hamburger); bovine specials (like braised short ribs); and the accompanying sauces that work amazingly well with beef.

If any of those chapters sound interesting to you, then Beef It Up! will surely have a recipe that will give you the inspiration to try beef a different way.
