British slang and news: British have “beef” with beef burgers

 

To have beef with something

This means you have a problem.

EXAMPLES

“What’s your beef?” (What’s your problem?)

“We better find out what his beef is.” (We need to find out what his problem is.)

 

I mention this because a leading news story this week has been that beef burgers sold by some UK supermarkets have been found to contain horse meat in them, so the British people have considerable beef with this!

 

Here is the BBC article:

In other news, we have had loads of snow in the UK recently. What about in your country? Any interesting news you would like to share?
