Easy, Tasty Dinners to Make with Any Kind of Beef

There’s a reason beef has a regular place in our weekly meal plans (several reasons, actually!). Beef is an incredibly versatile and affordable option (depending on how you shop) that can be cooked into many different types of dinners. We all know ground beef can be easily turned into dozens of recipes, including burgers , stir-fries, and casseroles. If a meaty steak is what you’re after, it’s surprisingly fast to cook up on the stovetop. And large, tough cuts of beef, like a top round or chuck roast, are ideal for slow roasts and stews (preferably in the slow cooker or Instant Pot).

Whatever you have on hand and whether you’re budgeting money or time, here are 35 tasty beef recipes that have something for everyone.

How to make the best roast beef dinner – with time plan!

It can take a little planning to make sure everything is on the table at the same time, but nothing can beat a home-cooked roast beef dinner! Today I’m going to show you how to achieve that with a step-by-step plan.

I started making roast dinners about 29 years ago. I know that makes me sound REALLY old, but actually I was just 11 when my mum got me started and taught me how with the aid of a big ole’ list. I honestly think learning to juggle multiple elements of a meal so early on is what gave me confidence in the kitchen and kick started my passion for everything food!

I wanted to share my full plan for making a roast dinner with you guys. You can find the steps in the recipe card below, and I’ve also got a free printable guide that includes times for every single step.

We’re having:

Roast beef:

Yorkshire Puddings:

Roast potatoes with salt and fresh thyme leaves

Crispy Roast potatoes:

Cauliflower cheese with spoonful taken out

Easy cauliflower cheese:

Bowl of steamed carrots with butter and black pepper

Simple buttered carrots:

Beef gravy in white jug surrounded by beef and potatoes

And Rich, beef gravy (and plenty of it!):

I have created separate recipes for each of these roast dinner components that I’ve been publishing over the last day or so, so you can pull them out to use with any meal. This is where I want to pull it all together so we can make sure everything is finished on time and cooked perfectly.

One of the things that’s kind of tricky about cooking roast beef, Yorkshires, roast potatoes and cauliflower cheese, is that they all need the oven – and some of those at different temperatures!

But we’re going to give the beef a long resting time (don’t worry – it will stay warm, and the extra resting times means it will be lovely and juicy), so the roasties and yorkshires have enough time to get crispy, and the cauliflower cheese has the time to turn golden and bubbly.
