Use Quick-Cooking Sukiyaki-Cut Beef With These Scrumptious Recipes

Beef doesn't need to take forever to cook.

Sukiyaki-cut beef is always delicious. Cutting any kind of beef thinly at the right angle (across the grain) automatically tenderizes it as the sinews are shorter. On top of that, this also means that the beef cooks much faster, letting you enjoy beefy, umami-packed goodness in a short amount of time.  Can you believe that most of these recipes take less than half an hour to make? Can’t believe it? Check these recipes all out for yourself!
