Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week as we're officially into fall we're featuring some tender, juicy beef recipes!
This recipe collection is sponsored by Alberta Beef
We love a good burger around here - in fact we've shared many of them from our recipe collection of beef burgers to our Mozzarella Mushroom Burger with Caramelized Onions. But there are so many other ways you can cook with beef from quick and easy stir frys to slow cooked braised ribs.
With Alberta Beef in your kitchen you'll always have the start of a delicious meal that can be ready in no time (try our 20 Minute Blackened Steak and Waffle Potatoes below) or that's slow cooked to perfection (try the Slow Smoked BBQ Brisket).
Alberta ranchers have more than two centuries of experience in raising cattle and their passion for ranching runs deep, with world class standards for quality and animal care. They're always looking for innovative sustainability management and land stewardship practices.
What that means for us home cooks is that Alberta Beef is some of the best in the world and whether you're on a budget or you want to splurge for a special occasion, there is a cut of beef that's perfect for you.
16 Delicious Ways To Cook Alberta Beef
This collection of 16 beef recipes is full of variety. There are international flavours with several curries, Taiwanese Beef Rolls and a Korean Inspired Crispy Beef Bowl. Look no further for old favourites like Beef and Barley Soup, a weeknight Beef Noodle Bake or a warming chili.
