Pampered Chef: BEEF in the DCB?

    Okay.. straight out, I DON'T DO BEEF! However, my husband does, AND several guests have asked about beef in the DCB. I've been honest, and said I haven't tried it... Has ANYONE?

    I did a beef tenderloin - shaved a couple of minutes off the pork tenderloin recipe, since I like mine less than medium. I was pleasantly surprised - and so was my husband - and he doesn't like beef either. I only did it because I found one on super sale and I was experimenting (as I recall, I even had another meal on backup) but it was something I had to use right away since it was going out of date. I couldn't believe how juicy, and how tender it turned out. Wasn't as pretty as it could have been could brown it on high heat skillet first next time.

    Also tried some steak cut up to replace the chicken in the 12 minute fajitas. Not nearly as successful; kind of stringy and tough. But it was a skirt steak, and that's the way it goes with skirt.

    I tried a Chuck Roast in the microwave and it was not good. That said, I do them in the oven in the DCB alot and they are like eating candy!!!!! So that just gives you more versatility to talk about.

    I gave my mother the recipe for doing the pork tenderloin in the micro and she was so excited. She went shopping for all the ingredients and bought flank steak instead (sometimes she's flaky). She said she seasoned it and then added soy sauce and micro'd it for 12 minutes. She said it was soooooo good!!!

    You would want to just pay attention to the cut of beef you get. If it's a cut that takes longer to cook in order to be tender, it probably won't come out great in the microwave. But that doesn't mean you can't cook it in the oven in the DCB.

    I think the creator of the DCB bundle (I can't remember his name to save my life right now) does a recipe with beef.

    We got a beef roast from Schwans and put it in the DCB in the oven and it came out awesome!

    I wouodn't do a roast in the micro (tried that, came out like a brick, was upset I wasted a 2lb roast and couldn't eat it!) but the meatloaf and such is great...I think anything maybe w/ ground meat instead of an actual "roast" would be great...
