Gather round, my fellow beef-loving friends, because today, we are celebrating Beef Week with the heartiest, cheesiest sandwich you’ve ever laid your eyes on. Seriously, this lunch is no joke, and if you’re able to get a knife through this sandwich and successfully halve it, then you are in a league of your own.
Fair warning, this is not a comprehensive guide to everything you will ever need to know about buying, preparing, and enjoying beef. The cow is a large—and glorious—animal, and there’s no quick-trick, listicle shortcut to fully understanding all that is beef.
Just because it’s Beef Week here at MyRecipes doesn’t mean that we can’t show a little love to another meaty delight (after all, beef week is a week of love and inclusion), bacon. And we can’t think of a better way to marry the two together than in a warm, mustard- and beer-infused soup.
There is something charming about meatloaf. Even if you are a 20-something who maybe didn’t even grow up eating it often (or ever), meatloaf feels pleasantly nostalgic. With its tomato glaze and trusty sides of green beans and mashed potatoes, meatloaf is straightforward comfort food at it’s finest.
