Easy Beef Recipes
Welcome to easy beef recipes! As I have mentioned in our healthy food list, beef is a healthy food. Supplying you with essential fat soluble vitamins, Beef is an excellent source of minerals like magnesium and zinc—you need zinc for clear thinking and a healthy sex life and immune system. Vitamin B6 is abundant in meat, especially rare meat. Red meat is one of the best sources of vitamin B12, which is vital to a healthy nervous system and healthy blood. Vegetarians are especially prone to vitamin B12 deficiency. Beef is also high in Co Enzyme Q10 which is vital to heart health. Yes, Beef is part of a heart healthy diet.
I always throw in my one last caveat and it is this:
Always try to choose as much organic, free range product as you can. Beef are not by nature, corn and soy eating animals. I always dissuade factory farming but I also understand how cost prohibitive it can be. Do the best you can with what you have access to and enjoy our easy beef recipes.
Garlic Stuffed Prime Rib
DirectionsMake holes in 10 different spots in the prime rib with a knife and stuff 10 cloves of garlic throughout.
Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast, and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, (about 45 minutes)
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F.
Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 degrees F, and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 75 minutes.
The internal temperature of the roast should be at 145 degrees F for medium rare.
Allow the roast to rest for 10 or 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices.
This Prime Rib recipe is wonderful served with a side salad and twice baked cauliflower. Definitely a favorite of our easy beef recipes.
Flank Steak Pinwheels
Place beef flank on cutting board and pound to 1/8" thickness. Some cut flank but I prefer to pound it for tenderness. Set aside.
Saute onions and mushrooms (separately as the mushrooms contain more water)
Sprinkle meat with salt, add all ingredients and roll tightly tying 6-8 sections and cutting respectively. (Each round should have its own tie)
Add olive oil and butter (extra butter if you'd like it for taste) to your skillet and cook on each side for 4-6 minutes depending upon your desired tenderness and wellness.
Grass fed flank only needs to sear on each side for 2 minutes. The reason, it carries less bacteria and therefore can be eaten safely in a rare to raw state.
This also works well with a pork loin.
One of my favorite Easy Beef Recipes and one of my family's favorites
Beef Flank Stirfry
Marinate beef in 2 Tbs. Sesame Oil, 2 Tbs. Tamari or soy and ginger for 30 minutes or more.
Quickly flash cook beef for 1-2 minutes, set aside.
Heat remaining oil on medium high heat and saute all vegetables other than bean sprouts. Add the meat and sprouts and cook just long enough to heat sprouts. Plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
It is my experience that when the food is chopped smaller prior to cooking or even while eaten, there is a better sense of flavor. Your easy beef recipes tip!
I like to add 1-2 Tbs. Wasabi Mustard to this easy beef recipes dish. Do be warned, we're a spicy, garlic loving family!
Keep in mind that snowpeas and carrots can cause cravings for the Insulin Resistant person so if this is you, eliminate these. You may also substitute Chicken for the beef in this recipe.
