Beef on Netflix – cheat sheet

Beef is the latest prestige television series to hit Netflix – and with a stacked cast and a killer soundtrack, it's not one you'll want to miss.

Beef follows the aftermath of a road rage incident between two strangers. Danny Cho (Steven Yeun), a failing contractor with a chip on his shoulder, goes head-to-head with Amy Lau (Ali Wong), a self-made entrepreneur with a picturesque life. The increasing stakes of their feud unravel their lives and relationships in this darkly comedic and deeply moving series. It’s produced by A24.

The soundtrack to Beef is full of 90s alt-rock bangers, like Cornflake Girl by Tori Amos and Mayonnaise by the Smashing Pumpkins. Delish!
