Beef is the culinary name for meat from cows, bulls, heifers or steers (Wikipedia, nd).

Allergy Alert:

Symptoms of beef allergy can range from mild to severe. A beef allergy can develop at any time in life. If you are allergic to one type of meat, there is a high risk that you may be allergic to other meats or poultry. A small percentage of children with milk allergy are also allergic to beef (ACAAI, 2014).

Common Uses:

Beef muscle meat can be cut into roasts, short ribs or steak (filet mignon, sirloin steak, rump steak, rib steak, rib eye steak, hanger steak). Some cuts are processed (corned beef or beef jerky), and trimmings, usually mixed with meat from older, leaner cattle, are ground, minced or used in sausages. Beef can also be used in stocks and broths (Wikipedia, nd).
