Check out my review of the newly updated Beef It’s What’s for Dinner website for a plethora of amazing beef recipes, along with information on beef nutrition, different cuts of beef and how to cook all types of beef properly!
Thanks to Michigan Beef Industry Commission for sponsoring this post.
Do you have questions about what beef cuts are best for certain dishes? What about the nutrition of beef and where it comes from? How about the need for more recipes to vary the type of beef you serve? All these questions are great ones to be asking, and ones that I feel are important to know. Thankfully the Beef It’s What’s for Dinner website covers all of this and more! Check out my review of the website below for tons of beef related information!
Beef It’s What’s for Dinner was recently revamped to give you easy access to all things beef. It’s broken down into 6 main categories with tons of details to help you, the consumer, have easy access to recipes, nutrition information and more.
The recipe collection is separated into several sections to help you find a recipe you are looking for quickly along with an easy search function. No surprise I’m sure, but a few of my favorites include 5 Ingredients or Less, 30 Minutes or Less and Kid Friendly Fare. Of course there are a ton of other sections that I reference often for ideas (hello Slow Cooker Comforts for this time of year!). And each recipe you pull up provides a quick view including an image of the recipe, how long it takes to prepare, how many servings, in addition to the protein and calories per serving.
This section is amazing since it gives you details how of to cook beef properly so A) it turns out tasty and B) it’s safe to eat! Personally I could use a lot of help in this section. I’m not quite as confident as I would like to be when it comes to cooking beef (other than ground beef). That’s why this section is perfect to start with since it provides details of how to cook each cut of beef properly with different cooking methods including stir fry, oven roasting, braising, stewing and indirect grilling just to name a few.
The cuts section is a great place to start if you’re looking to branch out and try a different cut of beef than your usual. This section is broken down into categories as well depending upon who you’re cooking for. A few of my favorites include: Affordable Beef Cuts for Families, Best Cuts You Can Marinate, and Best Beef Cuts for Slow-Cooking. Also check out this PDF cut chart for details of the various cuts of beef and the best way to cook them.
This section provides everything you’d like to know about beef nutrition including all the benefits you gain from the 10 essential nutrients beef provides including heart health, and beef for all ages. Check out my favorite section on what lean beef options are available – it’s more than you’d think!
This section is one that I would love more people to read. It not only explains how beef cattle are raised, but also gives background into the lives of beef cattle farmers. I have had the unique opportunity to visit beef cattle farms in the past and truly see how they take their jobs very seriously in providing safe foods to our country.

I hope this answers many questions you have regarding beef. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I’d be happy to answer them!
