Ground Beef

Ground beef is something I usually cook once a month, occasionally twice. I'm just not a super big fan, plus chicken is a lot cheaper. However, I'm pregnant and can't stand the smell and taste of chicken. I'm going to use the end of the chicken in the freezer then stick to pork and beef. I was wondering about what to make with ground beef... Usually I make meatlaof, meatballs, spaghetti, or burgers... I was wondering you guys knew of anything else that is relatively simple to make but delicious...

  • Shepards pie is good. Have you heard of it? Or is that something thats just around here and I dont even know it.. LOL. You cook the burger, mash some potatoes and get some corn. Put the burger in the bottom of a casserole dish, then a layer of corn, then a layer of potatoes, bake it for 20 min- half hour and it tastes great! My SO sometimes puts cheese on top too.. mmm.

  • Shepherd's Pie stays together and tastes better with creamed corn. I also like to sprinkle some Old Bay seasoning on top of the potatoes . . . so yummy. You could make empanadas or beef turnovers, stuffed peppers, swedish meatballs, goulash . . .
