Thai Beef Salad

The usual Thai-food suspects (lime juice, fish sauce and brown sugar) show up in the dressing of this stellar main-dish salad. Lean beef adds heft while peanuts, fresh mint and greens add crunch.

Chipotle Brisket with Sweet Potatoes

Smoky chipotles put a spicy spin on slow-cooked brisket while sweet potatoes soak up the flavors as the meat cooks.

Winter Vegetable Beef Soup

Here's a time-saving step for this old-fashioned favorite: Cook the chuck roast, onions and half the water for 15 to 20 minutes in a pressure cooker first. It will tenderize the meat, save on cooking time and produce an inordinately flavorful broth.

Beef and Cheese Tamale Pie
