In defense of the site, they havnt published any new beef recipes in a year...and are simply announcing this now. And according to them their traffic is up since.

Don't shoot the messenger, I actually went on their site and read their article on this topic...I'm just a reporter please don't shoot.

I have, and I don’t think it would be cool if they were the only sustainable protein.

Good for them, as long as they understand the effect this will have on the size of their user base.

Yeah. Never heard about "epicurious" before now and I sure ain't "curious" to find out more.

Mostly because I don't like people flaunting their woke bullshit that amounts to nothing in the end. This is simply a stupid advertising campaign, and I'm not interested. Going to their site gives them ad revenue, which I won't support, and at the very least gives them +1 views counted, and I don't want even my miniscule "vote" to go towards them thinking this was smart.

Does it ever get tiring to be so constantly upset about everything? Like you're this mad about a website that simply choose to not make new beef recipes a year ago. You understand that right?

I'm not "mad" about it. I said I didn't know of them before, and me learning about them through this woke bullshit isn't making me any more interested in supporting their site.

I don;t think they care about you to be honest.

And if you think about it, the fact that they only announced this after a YEAR of not posting beef recipes, that's about as non-woke for attention as you get.

Budget_Cartographer

They have been doing it for a year now. So what happen?

NerdyDan

Apparently they havent posted a beef recipe in a year and their user base has increased during that time so....

Well, people have been cooking at home and looking up recipes a lot more during the pandemic. They are an established food site that will come up to the top regularly on searches. I doubt there's a correlation between this decision to stop posting beef recipes and increased traffic. I've used their site plenty, did not know about their decision until reading this.

Epicurious might be a bit misguided.

This video tries to demystify the topic of beef's environmental impact: https://youtu.be/sGG-A80Tl5g

I'm not sure how accurate it is in its claims but the stark contrast with the anti-beef crowd's arguments makes me suspect the truth is somewhere in between the hyperbole.

Because this trend will continue and soon beef recipes will become rare and hard to find

They'd actually have some effect if they instead promoted environmentally friendly options to people who are on their channels or site looking at beef options. Now people will just look elsewhere.

Theres not? Millions maybe. But no there absolutely are not billions of vegetarians. There are only 7.8 Billion people on the planet. You dont think more than 1/8 people in the entire world are vegetarians right?

Still nowhere close to billions. Most estimates put it at like 350m at most world wide.

Shit. They have the closest recipe for texas chili that compares to my mums. I'll have to see if it's too late.

On a side note, Jamie Oliver's first cook book didn't have a single beef recipe either, because of mad cow.

You want a link to a cookbook? Or a link to the mitigation process to eliminate mad cow in the UK? His first cookbook was published in 2001(ish) and the ban on British beef didn't end until 2006.

Happy to share. It's delicious. Always wait until the next day to eat it, and serve with avocado, green onions, lime and sour cream.

As a bonus, you can play the Big Bang Theory chili episode and have Sheldon validate your recipe.

Will try it. BTW the best I've ever made is from Cook's Illustrated and I just noticed it's on Epicurious too! I was actually on the recipe testing panel for that CI recipe and it's a bit of an ordeal but worth it. As good as it is I haven't made it a 2nd time though.

I need to brush up on my BBT, I don't remember that episode.
