"Steak" is a particular "cut" of meat, meaning meat from a particular part of the animal's body cut in a particular way. Just like with chicken, "chicken" is the name of the meat but there are different "cuts" like " breast, leg, thigh, and wing". "I don't eat chicken wings" means something completely different than "I don't eat chicken" and "I don't eat steak" means something completely different from "I don't eat beef." You might eat hamburger and roast beef but not steak. For this reason, Duolingo should not accept "meat" as a translation for "beef". All beef is meat but not all meat is beef. BTW, the Italian word for "steak" is "bistecca" and the word for "meat" is "carne".
