Asian Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Barley

Asian Beef Tenderloin with Mushroom Barley and Sauteéd Mushrooms

Beef Tenderloin is marinated with Asian seasonings just for flavour, reserving the marinade to use in the flavourful Finishing Sauce. Although relatively easy to make, there are quite a few components to this recipe. Simplify the dish by making the Barley and Mushrooms ahead warming them just before serving.

Seared Beef Carpaccio-Style with Pickled Shallots, Veg and Chimichurri Sauce

Rare slivers of beef are served with roasted potato coins (sweet potato or not), chimichurri sauce and mixed greens topped with pickled shallots to finish the dish. Although the recipe is easy, there are several components to the dish, so think about making the pickled shallots, sauce and dressing for the greens ahead. Don't stress if you end up with leftover sauce or shallots as these are terrific condiments you can use for later meals. Try the pickled shallots to dress sandwiches, burgers or salads. Extra chimichurri sauce, is great with scrambled eggs, quiche, cheese or burgers or as a spread for toasted pita.  

Rouladen-Style Italian Meat Loaf

This Italian-style meat loaf is a colourful spiral of peppers, prosciutto, provolone and pine nuts – it tastes as sensational as it looks. Leftovers make terrific sandwiches tucked in panini or other crusty Italian rolls. An added bonus – any leftovers freeze well too.

Deconstructed Beef Wellington

 

Making Beef Wellington as individual servings is a modern take on the classically elegant meal.

 

Roast Beef with Peppercorn Wine Sauce and Yorkies

A Strip Loin roast has a thin shape so it cooks more quickly than chunkier roasts like Prime Rib. It also a snap to carve and little to no trimming required to serve. The Yorkies recipe here is courtesy of an old edition of Home & Gardens and the Frizzled Onions is a recipe that hails from Canadian Living. This is a real recipe-swap kind of recipe!

Beef and Mushroom Stew with Glazed Carrots and Puffed Pastry Crouton

Make this hearty stew with Stewing Beef such as Stewing Beef Cubes or Shank or cubes that are cut from Short Ribs or Simmering Steaks such as: Cross Rib, Blade or Brisket.

Beef Skewers with Roasted Tomato and Pomegranate Sauce and Dukkah

A charred tomato and pomegranate barbecue sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and slightly spicy and slightly smoky. It is brushed over the cooked beef skewers to serve and sprinkle with Dukkah to garnish. Dukkah is an Egyptian condiment consisting of a mixture of herbs, nuts and spices. Use any leftover sauce to serve with lots of other dishes: scrambled eggs, a cheese tray or even grilled cheese sandwiches. Use leftover dukkah to garnish any appetizer plate or sprinkle over yogurt, cottage cheese or a salad of mixed greens. Look for pomegranate molasses in the international section of your local grocery store.

Roast Beef Sliders with Pickle Relish and Aioli

Petite Tender Shoulder Beef Oven Roast is a new cut that you should ask for at the butcher shop, but a centre-cut beef tenderloin will work as well. Any leftover relish will keep in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. It makes a great condiment for hamburgers or sandwiches. To simplify the prep, you can make the aioli and the relish a few days ahead.

Rouladen-style Roast Beef

Inspired by Emily Richards @ERiscooking, this stuffed rolled roast is an easy way to take a budget roast like Eye of Round and turn it into something you’d be proud to serve to company. It’s very lean so you may even consider wrapping it in bacon – who doesn’t like bacon after all? Other options for filling: add asiago or Parmesan to the mixture, use pesto instead of mustard.

Cowboy Cupcakes

These little lasagnas are easy to make and are the perfect nosh for game night at home or a tailgate party out at the field. One easy recipe makes many and kids love them too. Switch-up the flavours to make the mix Mexican or Greek versions – variety is the spice of life!

Touch-Down Beef Burger with Grilled Onion and Toasty Bun

This burger says 'Olé' from the burger right through to the bun!

Barbecoa-style Burgers

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 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.

Slow Cooker Pulled Beef Barbecoa-style

The slow-cooker is great to use all year-round. Use it in summer to help keep your kitchen cool and ensure that you are out of the kitchen enjoying summer-fun! If you find Ancho chili paste in the grocery store, you can substitute it for the canned chipotle peppers.

Beef Involtini with Asparagus

This is a super way to take advantage of budget priced less tender steaks that you can be proud to serve to company. We used Inside Round for our tests but Sirloin Tip and other Round Steak would work as well. Our steaks were sliced about ¼-inch thick when purchased. You could substitute 1 tbsp shredded aged Cheddar or crumbled blue cheese per steak instead of the goat cheese if you wish. To serve 4, simply double the recipe.

Carpaccio-style Beef with Patatas Bravas

Chef Federico Lopez of Mexico prepared a tapas version of this recipe on his visit to the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence for our Tapas Periscope Party. Patatas bravas are a traditionally served as tapas in Spain – chunks of crispy fried potato served with a ‘fierce’ (bravas) tomato-based sauce and garlicy aioli. We took the cue from Chef Federico, serving our light supper version with slivers of seared beef steak, cooked to just rare to medium-rare. Instead of a cooked tomato sauce, we garnished with smoky wilted grape tomatoes. This would be good with a guacamole as well.

Corned Beef Dinner with Marmalade Glaze

This recipe is a perennial favourite for St. Patrick's day. Use a large slow cooker (20 to 24 cup or 5 to 6 L) for this recipe. If you have a smaller one, cut the corned beef brisket to fit. The cabbage is cooked separately after meat is finished so it won't impart its strong flavour to the other vegetables. Serve with your favourite mustard.
