Beef is one of those classic, versatile, main dinner ingredients that really can be a part of a lot of different styles of meals. In our original recipes roundup series, this post is just about general quick and easy beef recipes for dinner. I'd like to dig into a few more specific styles of beef recipes in the future, but for new, enjoy this diverse list of recipes that includes Middle Eastern, Asian, & American and in fried, creamy, or seared form.
Take a look at these 10 recipes and pick one you think looks delicious! They are all designed to be super fast (30 minutes or less), so that you can spend more time on the internet (or with family, whatever).

Obvious, but delicious. A simple pasta sauce recipe that includes healthy, hearty beef chunks. Whole grain pasta is better than the bleached white stuff (according to some folks), and tastes just as good. Be sure to use fresh basil to bring out that delicious Italian flavor!
Perfect for lunch the next day, so make more than you need. You won't have to grill this meat over the course of 24 hours like a typical shawarma joint will, but it'll taste just as good. The cool thing about making this at home is that you can use any type of meat and veggies you want, and make a healthier version so you don't eat 5,000 calories when you're drunk.
Lemon and rosemary might not strike you immediately as an obvious flavor combination for beef seasoning, but it works! Move away from typical bbq or black pepper flavorings and cook up some lemony rosemary steak.
Curry isn't the fastest thing you can prepare on a weeknight, but with this quick curry recipe, you'll be in and out in less than 30 minutes. This simple, spicy meal goes great with a glass of red wine.
Fire up the grill and make some beef bbq skewers. Even if you aren't ready to grill this season yet, you can still check out the cabbage walnut salad recipe because it's totally worth making.
A great starter recipe! I mean, who can't cook bacon? Make this super fast beef recipe any day of the week, even if it's just for a quick lunch or appetizer. Bacon wins every time.
Who says that fried foods have to take a long time to prepare? Whip up these beef schnitzel patties in a matter of minutes, then garnish with a delicious, creamy garlic sauce.
Sometimes making fast dinners isn't about making complicated meals, it's about getting creative with what you have on hand. Beef and cauliflower combine to create a hearty, satisfying meal that's not complicated to prepare.
Mushrooms are a divisive food….but I'm a big fan, especially if you can find the exotic kind. There are so many types of fun mushrooms to play with. For this recipe, we stick with typical button style mushrooms because hey, Save Mart around here doesn't get too adventurous.
Balsamic recipes are always tasty, and it goes well with many types of meat as you can see from my balsamic chicken recipe here. Check out how to make this one. It may look simple, but trust me, it's delicious!
