    Need some cheering (and warming) up? These winter beef dishes will fit the bill. There’s 20 of them, and we still haven’t resorted to dull stews! Promise.

    1. Hearty Beef Cottage Pie with Garlic Mash Topping

    Our favourite way to enjoy this hearty beef cottage pie is in individual ramekins, perfect for tucking in at the table or on the couch (#no judgement). It’s aromatic and moreish, just the way a good pie should be.

    2. Sumac Steak with Fattoush

    winter beef dishes

    We love fattoush; that Middle Eastern panzanella style salad studded with crispy shards of Lebanese bread. There’s nothing quite like it. Lemony sumac too is the perfect summery flavour for a dismally cold winter’s night. We’ve crusted a juicy tender steak in the stuff, and you won’t believe how good it makes it taste!

    3. Mild Beef Massaman with Almonds & Basmati Rice

    winter beef dishes

    A staple favourite from your local takeaway, you may not have turned your hand to whipping up a Massaman curry before. Once you’ve made this version yourself though, you’ll find it hard to return to anything else! This is just as creamy and comforting as the takeaway rendition.

    4. Beef & Caramelised Onion Pizza with Wilted Baby Spinach

    Between the richness of these sticky sweet caramelised onions, spiced beef and delicious gooey mozzarella, it’s easy to forget that these pizza bases have been cooked in your own kitchen. Now we’ve reminded you though…dig in!

    5. Sweet Sesame Yakitori Beef with Asian Greens

    Yakitori is a favourite late-night street food in Japan, where you’ll find alleys lined with charcoal grills selling skewers by the hundreds. We’re marinating our beef yakitori with ginger and kecap manis, and serving them with lovely mushrooms and fresh spring onion. Crunchy sesame tops off the whole tasty package!

    6. Premium Steak with Mushroom Sauce and Creamy Mash

    7. Brazilian Beef Skewers with Warm Rice Salad

    These tasty Brazilian beef skewers are inspired by arguably the country’s most famous dish, Feijoada. Black beans with rice is an authentic Brazilian combination, and it’s the perfect backdrop for these lovely, citrus infused kebabs. Bon appetite!

    Enjoy this trip back to the old country with a dish that’s as comforting as a hug from Nonna in the kitchen and as familiar as a glass of red wine. We’ve subbed in delicious rigatoni instead of spaghetti for this dish – it’s perfect for catching every little bit of delicious sauce!

    11. Tasty Tagliata with Roasted Garlic & Cherry Tomatoes
