It used to be that The Big Steak Dinner was a proud emblem of The Good Life. Now, for many, it has come to represent excess, recklessness and retrograde thinking. Fingered as a culprit in heart disease and several forms of cancer, the eating of beef has inspired, in some quarters, the same scorn as drinking too much at a party and then driving home. But now it faces a new, more complicated assault, one that seeks to establish beef as the mother of all evils, the Saddam Hussein of the U.S. food chain.

McDonald's Corp., facing a series of problems in international markets, is warning that its profits are likely to be below expectations for the first quarter and all of 2002. The fast-food company is being hurt by weak foreign currencies, especially the euro. Also, concerns about the safety of beef in Japan continue to affect sales in that country. In addition, sales in Latin America are down, and the company is closing stores in Turkey. McDonald's, in an earnings update, forecast quarterly earnings per share of 29 cents to 30 cents, excluding onetime charges.

In a culinary climate in which we increasingly place meatlessness next to godliness, even the holy burger has started showing herbiferous signs. Don't panic. The all-beef patty still ranks at the top of every food-trend chart, but there's a spreading acceptance for burgers made from something other than beef. Ground turkey was the first to make inroads. It looked and cooked like ground meat, and it alleviated fears of the much dreaded fat. Unfortunately, with little fat it also didn't have much to keep it moist, help it brown, or give it flavor.

Hooray, it's the holidays! And you'll find no "Bah humbug!" here. We're caught up in the festivities of the season. If we're lucky there'll be just enough snow to dress Bucks County in winter white. The little river towns along the Delaware look downright Dickensian - big stars and bells strung with twinkling lights hang from every lamppost, people hurry through their errands, while others stroll and peruse shop windows decked out with bling. There are even carolers on street corners singing the old favorites.

How many great cheesesteaks are there in the Philadelphia region? Far more than I and my four high-school-age eating machines could sample in four days. I'd still like to get to Leo's Steaks in Delaware County and sample the steak at Shank's & Evelyn's in South Philly. Even so, the cheesesteak tasting team made a serious dent, putting 23 restaurants to a triple-header test, basing our rating (with 5 being the best) on three styles of steaks - traditional, specialty, and chicken. John's Roast Pork , Snyder Avenue and Weccacoe Street, Philadelphia.

The general belief is that people don't eat steaks any longer. First of all, they're too expensive. Not only that - they're bad for your arteries. And nobody wants to go to restaurants to dance the way they did in the 1940s and '50s, to the melodic strains of Gershwin and Cole Porter. That's all old hat. All of which means that if you're looking for prime aged steaks marbled with fat that melts into delicious juiciness, and if you want soft music, romantic dining, sentimental entertainment, you'll have to travel to the Smithsonian Institution.

In some homes, a pricey beef roast is the yuletide equivalent of Thanksgiving's sweet potato and marshmallow casserole: essential. Yet in tougher times such as these, a $100 rack of prime rib is out of the question for many hosts, a $150 cut of filet mignon unthinkable. Even for those who can afford it, luxury meat can seem distasteful, an edible symbol of the excesses that have contributed to our financial woes. "I've served prime rib for the past five years . . . but this year we'll be doing a turkey," says Lois West, a school administrator and Center City resident.

Where's the beef? That's what U.S. Department of Agriculture inspectors wondered in 1987, when they began taking a closer look at "all-beef" meat products made by C.D. Moyer Co. at its plant in Silverdale, Bucks County. Turns out the company, a subsidiary since 1984 of the Philadelphia-based lunch-meat maker, Freda Corp., was using non-beef ingredients in certain products to cut costs and fatten profits, federal prosecutors say. The inspectors had a legitimate beef. Moyer and the vice president in charge of the plant, Matthew A. Guiffrida, 56, were charged yesterday with mail fraud and sale of adulterated meat.

It was a lesson in bookmaking, South Philadelphia-style. There was talk of "teasers" (combination bets where the odds are adjusted) and "working in the red" (deficit bookkeeping), and of bettors who try to "beat" those with whom they bet. All of it led to one Johnny Roast Beef, or "Beef," a South Philadelphia gambler who, on paper at least, owes the FBI $37,000 from the 1998 football season. No one expects Beef to pay the debt. But his gambling routine was the focus of intense questioning yesterday in the federal racketeering trial of reputed mob boss Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino and six codefendants.
