Healthy Beef & Lamb Recipes

Garlic-Wine Pot Roast
Beef and lamb are great meat choices for heart-healthy main course recipes. Whether it's a marinated steak, chili, glazed lamb chops, or a stew, meat can and should be part of a heart-healthy diet.

Beef and Red Bean Chili

This chunky, slow-cooker, Mexican-style Beef And Red Bean Chili stew owes its delightful flavor to an intriguing blend of chipotle peppers, oregano, cumin, and fresh cilantro.

Beef and Chipotle Burritos

Chipotles (smoked jalapenos) lend a great smoky flavor to these burritos, which are satisfyingly stuffed with beef, tomatoes, and onions.

Cajun Pot Roast with Sweet Peppers

A Louisiana-style pot roast gets its spunk in two ways. First, it is liberally flavored with Cajun seasoning and a good dose of hot pepper sauce. Then it's topped with a mix of colorful sweet peppers and tomatoes.

Brown Rice Risotto with Lamb

The combination of lamb, brown rice, and curry powder gives this eye-catching one-dish meal terrific flavor. Just add a tossed salad to round out the meal.

Fireside Beef Stew with Squash

Chunks of beef, potatoes, sweet butternut squash, and green beans make this a hearty, yet healthful stew. A tantalizing mix of mustard, allspice, and Worcestershire sauce give the stew its unique flavor.

Garlic-Wine Pot Roast

A good dose of garlic cooked with beef, red wine, thyme, carrots, and green beans makes for a warming stew, easily made. If you would rather not use wine, use beef broth instead. Leave in the bouillon granules for even richer flavor.
