Amy, the links to "Beef It's What's For Dinner" are not working. :(

What's the website address?

Amanda @ Fake Ginger said...

I think the mini beef wellingtons sound fabulous!

martha - thanks for the heads up. The links are up and working now!

Carla said...

Thanks for hosting this giveaway. The Italian Marinated Steaks with Grilled Ratatouille sound delicious!

Court Cooks said...

The Chipotle-Braised Short Ribs look amazing!!

somcak said...

I've always been confused as to how to cook/prepare what cuts of beef. The "Matching Cooking methods to Beef Cuts Ensures Success" is a very handy PDF that I downloaded and printed to put on my fridge!

DineInDiva said...

Nice site! My new favorite cut is Flat Iron Steaks - beefy flavor and very tender.

Michelle said...

Great giveaway! The Beef Sirloin Kabobs with Roasted Red Pepper Dipping Sauce look delicious!

whatsup1 said...

I can't wait to try the Beef Tenderloin with Savory Saucy Mushrooms. I also have the Tenderloin with Espresso Bourbon Sauce on my menu for this week. They sound so deeeelicious.

katie said...

Wow, Beef is the best give-away ever. I just recently join a coop that will deliver grass-fed meats to my house every week. I love beef best.

Trisha said...

I'm thinking I'm going to try the
Szechuan Beef Stir-Fry next week, I love stirfrys. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kelly said...

I've never made a steak at home before, so I could definitely use the tutorial on how to make a steakhouse steak! Thanks for the giveaway!

CB said...

I love beef...Yum..

Angela in Texas said...

I made your "flank steak with wine and balsalmic mushroom sauce" and was very surprised how good it turned out considering I am a beginner cook! I can't wait to try the "tenderloin steaks with espresso-bourbon sauce"...Yum!!

Pam said...

There are two that really made my mouth water: Chipotle Sloppy Joes with Crunchy Cole Slaw & Beef, Arugula & Spinach Lasagna. My family has turned toward a healthier lifestyle (and so had my blog) and these look great for us!

Tiff said...

Sounds like a great cookbook. I love beef but don't make it at home too often.

Missy said...

mmmm Okay, I want to try the Ginger lime beef steak. http://www.beefitswhatsfordinner.com/recipe.aspx?id=386

I love ginger and lime!

Lauren said...

I would love to win this cookbook! I'm always looking for new beef recipes! ...or the Amex gift card would be great during these trying economic times!
Thanks for the opportunity!

Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary said...

The Greek Meatball Sub looks awesome. I wasn't a big beef eater until just recently...now I love it!

Ginny said...

I'm always looking for more ethnic dishes to try, and the recipe for moroccan beef stew and sweet potatoes looks great. Plus - it's a slow cooker recipe. Perfect.

This & That said...

This site is sure to pull me out of the rut in buying the same cuts of meat, making the same recipes, just in time for grill season.

finsmom said...

I want to try the "Nuevo Chipotle Beef in Butternut Squash Baskets" from the 2007 national beef cookoff winner! Looks like a winner to me!

Thanks for sharing this website! I will be sure to bookmark it to check out often!

Jenny said...

I'd love to try the recipe for Garlic-Herb Crusted Beef Roast. I need to find new ways to cook roasts. By the way, I think your Tunisian Steak Wraps look so yummy.

The Paskins said...

The Baked Mini Meatballs sound great - I found them under the "kid friendly" section. I make spinach-breadcrumbs-Parmesan balls for appetizers all the time, and I was just thinking the other day that I should incorporate some meat in them to serve my 1-year-old at dinner. I bet you could freeze them to have as a handy go-to meal for kids and adults alike!

Rindy R said...

I think I will try the Southwest meatloaf! My kids love my meatloaf but this sounds like a great change of pace! Great website - thanks for pointing me in that direction!

abbeyviolet said...

I grew up on a cattle ranch so these all look delicious. My plan is learn to make the perfect steak so will try several options here.

Danielle said...

The Mushroom Merlot Burger sounds like a clear winner! I can just imagine it with some homemade sweet potato fries.

Martha said...

Thank you for taking the time to post pictures, recipes and tips on all of the beef recipes you prepared this week. I know I'll be using some in the future for my family and my personal chef clients. I also love the link to the "Beef It's What's For Dinner" website... lots of great ideas and inspiration. I've bookmarked it.

Jess said...

Count me in - I love the stir fry recipes! I'm always making those when I have guests over, since I also have an amazing rice cooker. Ooh, now I want braised bok choy and flank steak...

brinkmama said...

Amy, thanks for a great week on DFAY. So many recipes, so little time ;)

Carol Ann said...

I would love to try the lemon-herb beef pot roast. The photo looks great and it sounds like such a nice light change of pace from the pot roast and brown gravy I usually make (and that doesnt agree with my husband!!).
It's a great site with great recipes.

Gwyn said...

The recipe book looks great. I am anxious to try the roast with the gorgonzola sauce. Gwyn

Sharon said...

I want my beef to be grass fed and moved from pasture to pasture without being fed corn or other grains. You know, the way cows are biologically supposed to eat!
SharonWorster@gmail.com

Cher said...

I have been eying the Chipolte Crabby Patties with Sweet and Sour Slaw ... I mean, there is no part of that which doesn't sound delicious to me.

Christina said...

The beef and fried rice looks good, I just may try it! Lots of other interesting recipes to try too. Thanks!

Emily said...

I want to try the Veg-Stuffed Rolled Flank Steak. It looks DELISH!

pipnibor said...

I want to try the Chili-Marinated Steaks with Cilantro Cream. Yumm sounds so good!

Barbara said...

Everything looks great. I thought the beef kabobs you posted with the red pepper sauce looked like something I would like to try soon!

Jamie said...

Dude - beef has 8X the vitamin B12 as chicken, and 6X the zinc! I will definitely be cutting back on my massive consumption of chicken now that I know this....

my email is parallelfirst_at_gmail_dot_com

meggcellent said...

i have to agree with emily - veg-stuffed flank steak! i love the idea of steak that's not dripping in fat and wrapped in bacon...

Missy said...

I want to try the lime ginger beef - YUM!!!!

The cookbook looks awesome, this is fun!

sallybranwyn said...

Definitely Beef Tenderloin with Savory Saucy Mushrooms and Lentils will now be my mission this week!

The Sloppy Joe Bake sounds terrific. And I have all the ingredients on hand!

Patti A. said...

Tough to choose. Chipotle Sloppy Joes with Crunchy Coleslaw and Spicy Buffalo-Style Meatballs are at the top of my list.

AJ said...

I just started eating beef again after a 10-year hiatus, so the whole website is great to me!

The Ginger-Lime Beef Steak sounds delicious!

Topher said...

Thanks

Karen Ross said...

Love your blog.

I also love short ribs and can't wait to make the Braised Chile Spiced Short Ribs with Black Beans.

biz319 said...

My husband likes meat for an appetizer, meat for dinner and meat for dessert - pick me!

I am going back to get more inspiration, but I loved the asian steak stir fry!

Jamie said...

I think the Wild Mushroom Beef Stew recipe sounds yummy! We love our beef, but we also try to be healthy - and sometimes it's difficult! I also like this recipe because it's done in the slow cooker and since I'm a "frugal soul" and this saves a ton of energy/money - I'm loving it!

Thanks for a fun giveaway!

Paige said...

Caesar Salad Beef Burgers on Garlic Crostini sound yummy! What a great giveaway!

I have been trying to make more beef recipes as my husband likes beef a lot more than I do. Unfortunately, I don't know how to cook it well, as I don't eat it often. this book looks awesome! And the website was VERY informative. I tried your beef kabobs, and they were very good. From the website I want to try the Asian Beef Braised with Vegetables. Yummy!

Wow that site was a weath of info. I was wandering around the net looking for something to do with "beef roll steaks" (the local store has em on sale for under $2.00 a pound. I' gonna try the vegitable-stuffed rolled flank steak. looks yummy and the instructions look so easy!

Steph said...

We love beef in our home, but often it's too expensive for us to buy on a weekly basis... We probably only get to cook it once every 3 weeks or so. :( A $100 gift card would really help out!

Ken Scott said...

A couple of years ago I made a recipe with Blade Steaks for a Boston event. The steaks were braised and came out wonderfully. This is a recipe I need to revisit.

Best,
Ken Scott

Lori said...

I have always wanted to try Beef Wellington. The mini ones on the site look very tempting!

You visited my blog a while ago. I was shifting some of my recipes over to another site and saw your post. So I stopped by, what a perfect day to stop by! A giveaway!

Mominem said...

I've found some great deals on Corned Beef after St. Patrick's day. I printed this recipe to try.
