June 1999 – Beef comes in many varieties, from ground beef to roast beef to stewing beef to different cuts of beef steak. And when it comes to preparing beef, there is no end to the variety of meals you can come up with.
Here in Canada, as I write this, we are heading into summer, and a great favourite is steaks and hamburgers grilled on the barbecue – and what could be simpler?
But since we do get tired of barbecued steaks (eventually!) here are some other ideas for beef main dishes. Whether you are looking for a quick and easy weekday dish, a way to make a good meal out of an inexpensive cut of meat, something the kids will find appealing, or a special dish for entertaining, you’ll find it here.
