Beef Tataki
This is a classic Japanese appetizer that will appeal to many fans of sashimi. This simple preparation highlights the flavors of the meat, with a sauce made from cooked beets, soy sauce, and mirin; the nutty flavor of toasted sesame seeds; and a hint of heat from a pinch of Sichuan pepper.

This the perfect dinner party entrée because it's easy to do ahead of time, is served at room temperature, and if you're making it during the summer, you're lucky to have a chance to take part in one of our favorite activities for warm weather — grilling. I like to serve it with a side of horseradish sauce, but it tastes delicious all on its own because of the flavorful seasoning blend that serves as a dry rub. Want to know a little secret? Premade spice blends, such as McCormick's Montreal Seasoning, work perfectly for the rub if you don't have all of the individual seasonings on hand.

Beef Morcon
Let me share with you my Mom's beef morcon recipe that I altered a bit. You will find this dish irresistible, and you definitely won't regret if you'll make this a part of your next big get-together. It's such a good alternative to the usual star of the dinner table, a large roast. The best thing about beef morcon is that you can prepare it ahead of time!

Beef Burke-y is my own take on beef jerky. It’s a man’s snack, perfect for a football game, and I bet you didn’t realize how easy it is to make. This is great to make ahead of time just to have lying around the house

Beef Machaca
Beef machaca is the shredded Mexican beef you find filling the most delicious tacos and burritos (and I'm not talking about the filling found in those fast-food Mexican food places). Nope, this is the real-deal shredded Mexican beef that fills those Mexican favorites found at real taquerias. This machaca recipe has lots of different flavors. There really isn't any one that stands out; they all blend really well together and it's super simple to make. You just need to plan a little ahead, because the meat needs to rest overnight with a rub on it before you can start the braising. Once you've made your beef machaca, you're ready to fill the burritos and tacos for your Cinco de Mayo party. But what might be even better is making up a plate of this beef machaca with a fried egg on top for your Cinco de Mayo hangover cure the next morning.

If you have leftover steak or pot roast on hand, this recipe will come together in a matter of minutes. While they’re not required, a few cooked mushrooms add an extra savory dimension, so toss those in, too, if you have them. Click here for more of our best beef stroganoff recipes.

Beef Yakitori
Like the Tripoley and cribbage we used to play so often together, yakitori is something of a tradition in my family. Dad's Navy career had us living in Japan for a few years (I was born there), and just outside the gates of the base was a small yakitori restaurant my parents often patronized. This recipe is based on one my mom came home with from Japan. These flavorful skewers can be made with chicken in place of beef, if you wish. I recommend using boneless, skinless chicken thighs; they remain more tender and juicy on the grill than chicken breast meat. Adapted from "Gourmet Game Night" by Cynthia Nims.

Mongolian Beef
I have a dirty secret. Mongolian beef is one of my favorite things to order when I'm tempted to spend the night in, cozy up in front of the TV (my theoretical TV, since I'm one of those New Yorkers who doesn't have one), and just eat out of a box. A Chinese takeout box, that is. But, I've made a version here that won't require picking up the phone and that's a bit healthier, with the addition of green and yellow wax beans and some grape tomatoes on top of the usual bunch of scallions. Feel free to add in some sugar if you like the sauce a little on the sweet side. See all recipes for stir-fry. Click here to see Beef Recipes for Any Night of the Week

Turn extra pizza dough into something more south-of-the-border. Baking (instead of frying) cuts calories and fat — and doesn't take too much extra time. This flaky and flavorful treat spends only 10 minutes in the oven.
