Beef It Up!: 50 Mouthwatering Recipes for Ground Beef, Steaks, Stews, Roasts, Ribs, and MoreBeef It Up!: 50 Mouthwatering Recipes for Ground Beef, Steaks, Stews, Roasts, Ribs, and More by Jessica Formicola
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A solid ‘starter’ cookbook for the young person in your life who’s just starting out on their own. I suggest pairing a copy of “Beef It Up!” with a good-quality roasting pan, cast iron skillet or Dutch oven for the perfect apartment-warming gift.

The first chapter, “Beef Up Your Knowledge” is filled with important cooking method lessons, information about the various cuts of beef, and helpful advice. Most experienced cooks will already be familiar with this information, but a refresher course certainly couldn’t hurt.

Even within the book’s 50-recipe constraint, there’s a varied selection of international dishes. I’m looking forward to trying the Sweet and Spicy Mongolian Beef for my next cooking adventure.

My thanks to author Jessica Formicola, Storey Publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
