Library Journal

With Richard Chamberlain, a Dallas chef, and Betsy Hornick, a nutritional expert, the Beef Association and the American Dietetic Association present recipes for their favorite foods based on the 29 cuts of beef that "meet government guidelines for lean." Each recipe includes a nutritional analysis, and there are "Healthy Living Tips" and notes on "Beef Smarts" throughout, along with six appendixes covering topics from "Beef Basics from the Experts" to "The Skinny on Beef and Health" (somewhat oddly, there is no reference to Atkins and similar diets). The recipes themselves-Asian Express Beef Wraps, Southwest Beef and Pasta Skillet-are fine but unexceptional, and most general diet cookbooks include at least a handful of healthful beef dishes.
