Cooking Light Ground Beef

Cooking Light Ground Beef

Roadhouse Steaks with Ancho Chile Rub
  • Ancho chile powder is made from ground, smoked, dried poblano peppers, and it gives this rub a subtle smoky heat. For a milder flavor, cut back on the ground black pepper or ancho chile powder, and omit the ground red pepper.
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  •  ½ teaspoon ground cumin

  • ⅛ teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 (4-ounce) beef tenderloin steaks, trimmed
  • Cooking spray

Smothered Burgers

  • 2 cups vertically sliced onion
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound ground round
  • 4 (1-ounce) slices Texas toast
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
Garlic and Herb Standing Rib Roast
  • A standing rib roast makes a grand statement at the table. You do not need to ask your butcher for a frenched roast (one that has had the meat stripped from the bones); a regular standing rib roast will work just as well.

1 (5-pound) standing rib roast, trimmed
1½ tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
Parsley sprigs (optional)
Roasted garlic heads (optional)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 cups trimmed watercress (about 1 bunch)
1 (8-ounce) French bread baguette, cut diagonally into 16 slices
2 tablespoons capers
