I've Got A Beef To Pick With Allrecipes...

...a beef recipe that is. So as a beef lover instead of just one beef recipe I picked a few. Two of the following recipes are new and two are my favorites.

This first new recipe I made was from the "National Cattlemen's Beef Association" recipes right here on Allrecipes.

Confetti Beef Taco Salad

As written this recipe is good but with the addition of a few ingredients (salsa, jalapenos, sour cream etc.) this easily becomes a 5 star recipe.

This is another new recipe I tried from the beef collection here on Allrecipes. This turned out perfect. I'm so glad I tried this and it will go into my regular rotation. 

Surf and Turf doesn't get much better that this. The seasoning for the steak and the marinade for the shrimp are spot on for this 5 star recipe.

This next recipe happens to be one of my favorites and I make it often to keep slices of roast beef on hand for several uses whether it be for a roast beef dinner or sandwiches.

I like to make two eye of rounds at a time for a roast beef dinner then I chill the remaining of the roasts prior to slicing on the meat slicer and wrap individual portions in plastic wrap to freeze for later use in sandwiches or this, another one of my favorites.

As a beef lover it's good to know that there are more than 29 cuts of lean beef that fall between a skinless chicken breast and a skinless chicken thigh when comparing cooked 3oz servings. That's good to know because that group includes T-bones, tenderloins and my go to eye of round not to mention many other cuts of beef. Another plus is that a 3oz serving of lean beef provides 25 grams of protein.

Don't you love that last sentence? Hello-o-o-o beef, one less chicken dinner each week! Must get an eye round this week, too. Great blog, B. D.!

Bibi - Thank you. Those numbers make me feel good about eating beef.
Aug. 18, 2013 7:41 pm
We don't eat a lot of beef, but looking at your recipes make me want to have more. Great blog bd.

looking good bd - I just threw my slab of beef on the fire - you put me to shame
Aug. 19, 2013 6:05 am
Those recipe look good. Saving the recipe for the eye of round!

Beautiful Photos bd.weld! I will have to try your slow roasted beef. How is the new camera? I have been a slacker this month on taking photos and even cooking.
Aug. 19, 2013 6:33 am
manella - Thank you for looking in. Gotta love a juicy steak once in a while.
Aug. 19, 2013 6:35 am
Doug Matthews - lol. Now I know that you can cook a mean slab of beef. Can't wait to see photos of that slab of beef.
Aug. 19, 2013 6:38 am
Really nice. I have to admit, that I'm a bit jealous of people that get to enjoy their roasts, etc., at medium rare. My missus needs it done done done.
Aug. 19, 2013 6:38 am
Cat Hill - Thank you. We always have on hand slices of the roast. There's some many recipes to use it for.
Aug. 19, 2013 6:42 am
Lela - Thank you. I hope the healing is going well. Slacking is OK in your condition. I got the D7100 and so far it's easy to use. I have even bracketed some shots. Haven't shot video yet with it.
Aug. 19, 2013 6:45 am
duboo - Thank you. I cook two to the same temp. Maybe you can cook two, one to your liking and one to the missus' liking. A win win situation.

Bd weld, getting better each day. Great camera!
Aug. 19, 2013 9:38 am
Lela - Thanks. It's good to know you are getting better. I miss your photos.

I've got a roast in the freezer, was thinking of getting it out for the weekend. Now I have an even better idea about how to use it! I loved the taco salad, that'll be on my regular wheelhouse! Thank for your blog!
Aug. 19, 2013 3:14 pm
mommasangelbaby - Thank you. I could make a huge list of recipes I make with the eye of rounds.
Aug. 19, 2013 7:45 pm
Brian: Looks delicious! I am still planning to make your roast. I've been waiting for a decent price on the meat, but I'm about to give up and just fork (pun intended) over the money.
Aug. 20, 2013 7:20 am
bikerfamily - lol, go ahead and fork over the money. I remember when lean cuts of beef use to be cheap. Not any more. Must be a health thing.

Your slow roasted beef is a regular round here. Now I need to splurge on a slicer :)
Aug. 20, 2013 8:21 am
mauigirl - Thanks for looking in. Once you buy a slicer you will wonder how you got by without one. I use mine all the time. It also works great for slicing no knead bread.

Informational and beautiful and tasty? YEAH!Beef, It's What's for Dinner.
Aug. 20, 2013 8:40 am
ibbz - Thank you. Gotta love beef.

Great blog and great recipes too! I love your slow roast beef. What a great method! My daughter is anemic and has been told by her doctor that lean red meat is the best source of easily-absorbed haem iron, she was told to try to include it 3-4 times per week. No wonder I am not anemic, I LOVE beef!
Aug. 20, 2013 10:25 am
Dang, I know I typed a comment the other day, where'd it go? Anyway, I saved the recipe and am getting some roast to try out your recipe!
Aug. 20, 2013 10:26 am
Well, there it is now! Computers just love me :)
Aug. 20, 2013 11:42 am
Baking Nana - Thank you. If I'm ever out of Slow Roasted Beef it means I'm on my way to Costco to but some more.
Aug. 20, 2013 11:44 am
Cat Hill - I hope the roast works well for you. It disappears fast like posts here.

I bought a temperature probe with a long wire just so I could make your eye of round roast. Haven't made it yet, but I sure do intend to. So many people rave over it, so I know it's wonderful! Great blog with fantastic photos!
Aug. 20, 2013 11:56 am
Paula - Thank you. I think you will be happy with the roast. It was great to meet you. We had a great time with you and your husband.

Is the Eye of Round good enough to serve for dinner with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy from the roast? I wasn't sure if it was a tougher cut of meat that definitely tasted better in sandwiches with sauce. Recipe sounds great. I found a couple eye of rounds today that were on special, quite large in fact about 4-1/2 lbs. for $13. Would like to go back and buy it if it is still there. Thanks.

GOLDENS - Yes it is perfect for dinner when cooked this way. Slice it thin. Perfect paired with mashed potatoes and gravy. With this cooking method the roast will retain all of it's juices so you will have to make your own gravy.

Hi Brian, your recipe photos look delish! I just saved your Slow Cooked Roast Beef recipe. The fellas in my life are all Beef Eaters too and would love it. And, what a bang for your buck.... Where else can you get 25 grams of protein for the very low price of 3 ounces?
Aug. 20, 2013 5:52 pm
Candice - My sweet friend, thank you. Give that Slow Roast Beef a try you won't be sorry. Tell Orange hi for me.
