Torn kale leaves are marinated in a creamy homemade dressing to tenderize the leaves and impart a intense garlicky-lemon flavour.

Grilled Beef Heart

The next time you’re craving beef but you feel like saving a few bucks, why not try beef heart? Heart is a muscle, not an organ, so it has a steak-like quality that people who are squeamish about organs will be cool with. I developed this recipe years ago when I was at Mistura; it’s a cross between a steak dish and a carpaccio. Serve it as an appetizer at your next party and see if anyone notices what cut it is. This recipe calls for the heart to be barbecued, but you can absolutely sear it in a hot frying pan instead.

Pressure Cooker Beef & Rice Taco Bowls

With all the flavours of taco night, this fun and family-friendly recipe allows everyone to gather at the dinner table and assemble their rice bowl to suit their own personal taste.

Beef Samosas

Spiced ground beef enveloped in pastry and fried to perfection, these beef samosas make the best kind of appetizer. I prefer using lean ground beef for this recipe. Traditionally samosas are deep-fried though sometimes when we get uncooked samosas from our families we use the air fryer. The samosa wrappers can be found in the freezer section in well-stocked supermarkets and at Southeast Asian grocery stores.
