Delicious and nutritious lean beef recipes for every occasion
"This must-have cookbook for the health-conscious cook is a mouthwatering collection of nutritious and easy-to-use recipes featuring lean cuts of meat. The book also contains a wealth of information to guide consumers who are monitoring fats, sodium, and calories."
Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, nutrition consultant and former American Dietetic Association spokesperson
"The steaks are on and Chef Richard Chamberlain, along with his team of nutrition experts, has done it again with The Healthy Beef Cookbook! Packed with nutrition information and easy-to-follow recipes, now everyone can experience the culinary pleasures of cooking delicious, healthy beef dishes."
Chuck Norris, actor and fitness expert
Brought to you by the American Dietetic Association and the National Cattlemen's Beef Association, supported by the Cattlemen's Beef Board, The Healthy Beef Cookbook shows health-conscious cooks exciting new ways to use lean beef in everything from quick and easy suppers to special occasion entrées. From great grilling recipes and sensational salads to hearty sandwiches, soups, stews, and one-dish meals, this full-color cookbook shows you special preparation and cooking techniques to create tender, moist, flavorful dishes every time.
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.
