Beef and lamb are used less in 30 minute meal preparations than other proteins as a lot of times you are cooking beef low and slow and enjoying the benefits of a long braise. You may also have a large roast that takes time to cook.
But don’t forget how quick you can cook a steak, stir fry or burger. These will all be wonderful for a weeknight or as a weekend meal too.
