Steak with Peppercorn Sauce
This classic dish is just so delicious there’s no wonder that it has lasted the test of time. Use the best dry-aged steaks you can find and make sure you give them plenty of time to rest before serving them – this allows all the juices to settle.
10-Minute Beef Stir-fry
Use best quality cuts of beef for this and make sure the oil’s smoking hot before you start cooking. You’ll be rewarded with a delicious dish that’s a great supper when you’re in a hurry.
Beef & Noodle Stir-fry
A lovely balance of flavours and textures for a quick no-nonsense yet healthy and tasty meal. This stir-fry beef supper is great for mid-week!
Beef Burgers with Spicy Red Pepper Salsa
These beef burgers are so simple to make and when served with a colourful salsa, they make a fresh and healthy meal. We think the soy sauce and chilli add an extra zing!
Beef Burgers with Sweet & Sour Aubergine
Come rain or shine, we love a burger – especially one with a gourmet twist! Top tip: don’t be tempted to squash the beef burgers against the BBQ or grill, as this will force all the tasty juices out and result in a very dry burger.
Beef carpaccio with roasted beets and parmesan shavings
Try to slice the beef as thinly as you can but it doesn’t matter if it is not too perfect, a little bit of rough texture gives plenty of character to the finished plates. It really is an great dish for a dinner party or special occasion and is bound to impress.
This stew is a simplified version of a traditional Moroccan tagine. Of course, we think it tastes superb with really flavoursome (yet cheaper) cuts of beef, such as chuck or shoulder!
Beef with Horseradish, Bacon & Beetroot
We think this is a wonderful way to jazz up a fillet steak. Black pudding and beetroot make a lovely dressing, with the crispy bacon providing a welcome crunch to the texture of the dish.
Best Ever Beef Burgers
These beef burgers are also delicious when served with some spicy potato wedges. If the sun is shining, we cook them on the BBQ, otherwise a griddle pan on the cooker works just as well.
Caribbean Jerk Steak
If you like strong flavours, then you’re going to love this beef steak recipe – it really does have a powerful kick. Better yet, it’s bang on during BBQ season!
Chargrilled Beef Salad
We think the deeply savoury, slightly smoky crust that comes from searing the fillet of beef on a really hot barbecue contrasts perfectly with the fresh, cool salad.
A really good cheeseburger has to be made from really good beef. If you can ask a butcher to mince some rump, blade or chuck steak for you but make sure it has 20 per cent fat content as this will in effect make them self basting and prevent them from drying out during cooking. Otherwise buy ordinary minced beef from the supermarket, but don’t buy extra-lean mince because the burgers will become as tough as old boots during cooking.
Fillet of Beef with Niçoise Salad
Tender fillet of beef makes a colourful, fresh-tasting salad – and this twist on a classic dish sings of summertime! It makes the perfect light lunch and works well with leftover cooked roast beef too. We like!
Fillet Steak with Garlic Cream
It may be a simple recipe, but we can’t think of a better way to impress someone special than with a gorgeous cut of tenderloin beef steak smothered in this velvety smooth sauce.
Fillet Steak with Salsa Verde
A great Italian sauce that is excellent when served with a good fillet steak and some chunky red wine. It needs to be served immediately after it’s cooked, so don’t make it too far in advance.
Griddled Beef Burgers with Guacamole
Homemade hamburgers not only taste delicious but can be made so healthy too. Remember not to leave them on the heat for too long as this can dry the meat out – you want a nice juicy burger. We like our guacamole with a bit of bite so for best results, don’t over-mash the avocado and perhaps leave some nice, chunky bits in.
Grilled Sirloin Steak with Beetroot & Horseradish
Beetroot together with horseradish makes a great accompaniment to beef cooked under the grill. If you can’t find fresh horseradish, simply use three tablespoons of ready-grated horseradish, available in jars from most major supermarkets.
Indonesian Beef Skewers
Using shrimp paste here gives these fantastic beef skewers a brilliantly authentic flavour. It’s easily found in specialist stores (in small tubs), and once opened keeps quite well in the fridge. Otherwise, you might like to try substituting it with Chinese five-spice powder.
Marinated Fillet of Beef with Herb Dressing on Crusty Bread
These very special sandwiches made with fillet of beef are a treat for the whole family to enjoy and a real favourite with all of us in the Grasstronomy Farm kitchen!
This dish was enjoyed by the famous Pavarotti, who helped launch Quality Irish Beef in Italy. It’s simple to prepare but with the fillet of beef as the main hero here, it really is something special.
Quick Beef Thai-style Red Curry
If you like Thai Curry dishes, then you’ll love this spicy beef curry! Make it as hot or as mild as you wish by adjusting the quantity of red curry paste and chillies.
Sizzling Beef Fajitas with Tomato & Avocado Salsa
This is a great dish for all the family to enjoy and is perfect put in the centre of the table, so everyone can dig in. The beef can be marinated well in advance leaving very little to do at the last minute.
Spiced Beef Fajitas
Kids just seem to love this dish – luckily these healthy beef fajitas are very good for them and packed full of protein. You might want to keep a packet of flour tortillas handy once the rest of the clan get a taste of these!
Steak & Caramelised Onion Open Sandwich
Sometimes you want something tasty and delicious but just don’t feel like cooking a full meal. For such a situation, this dish is perfect! If you want to make it even more substantial, try serving it with crisp, fat chips and watch how quickly the plates are cleared!
Steak Diane with Cheat Chips
This French classic has stood the test of time. It’s impossible to beat a perfectly cooked piece of filet mignon served with a rich, creamy sauce and some fat chunky chips. A refreshing watercress salad on the side is the perfect accompaniment.
Steak Kebabs with Ketchup Dressing
We find that serving this tangy, and slightly spicy tomato ketchup dressing at BBQs together with some really top-notch beef kebabs is quite popular with the kids!
Steak with Grilled Vegetables
Succulent beef steaks and gorgeously sweet vegetables – you couldn’t ask for a more perfect combination. We like to add a splash of thick, honeyed balsamic vinegar – try it and find yourself in heaven!
Stir-fried Ginger Beef with Aromatic Greens
This is a great way to prepare green vegetables. The stir-frying helps keep their crunch, while the hot sauce gives them a rich, almost nutty flavour. Choose from any of the wide range of greens now readily available, such as sugar snap peas, French beans, mangetout, spinach, Swiss chard, Chinese pak choi, choi sum; or even finely shredded cabbage works well.
Traditional Dry Spiced Beef
A traditional Irish spiced beef dish that is usually enjoyed over Christmas. But it also goes well with summer salads.
Warm Steak with Tomato, Cucumber & Basil
We’re very fond of this fantastic, healthy beef salad. You may need to ask your butcher to cut the steak especially for you, otherwise simply reduce the cooking time accordingly.
