Make Our Go-To Quick Beef Recipes on Busy Weeknights
From takeout-inspired stir-fry dishes to special occasion Fondue with Seared Steak, we've got new and exciting ways to cook beef for your family and friends. These recipes will show you how to transform sirloin steak into a burger, stir-fry, and stew. Ground beef takes on a new life in tacos, meatballs, and chili. Perhaps the best part is that all of our quick beef recipes come together in less than 45 minutes, which means you can enjoy them any night of the week.
Looking for an interactive main course? Try making tacos or lettuce wraps, such as Beef Bulgogi recipe that's pictured here; thin slices of a rib-eye steak, peppers, and onions are tossed in a marinade made from soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger before being sautéed. From there, everyone can roll individual lettuce wraps using the flavorful beef mixture.
Of course, there are plenty of quick and easy riffs on classic steakhouse main courses, such as our Steak-House Burger. A blend of boneless short ribs and sirloin steak create juicy patties that are topped with indulgent and irresistible condiments such as blue cheese and mustard. If you're feeling a little less fancy but are craving a burger, our recipe for a Classic Burger-Joint Cheeseburger should please. There's nothing too surprising about it—all you'll find are the necessary fixings like dill pickles, beefsteak tomato slices, and a ketchup-mayonnaise combo. Order up!
