Meat 101

Quick & Easy Summer Meals.

Here are some delicious, quick, and healthy meal ideas:  

  • Shish Kebabs – easy-to-assemble using pre-cut beef, pork, or chicken cubes with fresh seasonal veggies. These can be seasoned or marinated and grilled.  
  • Salads – great and filling with sliced steak, chicken or a grilled burger on top of them. The steak or chicken can be cooked and cooled the day before, sliced thin and placed on your favorite salad.  
  • Beef & Pasta Skillet Primavera – quickly cook beef cubes or ground beef in a skillet then add some beef broth; bring to a simmer and add pasta, zucchini or squash, diced tomatoes and seasonings; cook until pasta & veggies are tender.  
  • Slow Cooker or Crock Pot Meals – just add ingredients to the crock pot and let it do the work! Shredded beef, pork or chicken sandwiches (serve with potatoes & veggies); beef short ribs slow cooked with your favorite BBQ sauce (serve with veggies); or pork spare ribs with sweet & spicy sauce (serve with rice & beans).
