Chili Lime Steak with Cilantro Rice and Watermelon Salad
Peppery arugula and juicy watermelon salad add a pop of freshness to steak and whole grain rice dinner. A modest serving of beef provides 90% DV of your vitamin D daily needs. Absorption of the non-heme iron from the rice and arugula is enhanced by 150% by including meat in the meal.See full recipe
This burger recipe was inspired by a team of Mexican chefs that were hosted at the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence. We recommend using medium ground beef for the best flavour. If using lean or extra lean, add in a tablespoon or so of butter, cream or minced bacon to enhance flavour. Sauté the onion and garlic to incorporate into the patty better than if added uncooked. If you can find Ancho Sauce in the grocery store, that can substitute for the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.See full recipe
Classic Roast Beef with Rosemary Cream Sauce
Roast beef’s so simple (and impressive) for entertaining – just season (simply), sear and slow-roast for best results. Use a Meat Thermometer to cook your roast to the doneness that you like the best – without overcooking it! A good thermometer is one of your best kitchen investments (way cheaper than granite counters)! Beef Strip Loin is ever-tender and has amazing flavour. And because of its flatter shape, a Strip Loin roast will cook quite quickly for its weight.See full recipe
