I need NEW ideas with ground beef

My usual is spaghetti sauce, meatloaf, tacos, meat n peas, and stroganoff.

I need new ideas on what to cook that is simple enough for a starter. Maybe in the 30 minute meal range? I'm looking online and not many I can find with ground beef (it's what I have thawed out).

Sloppy joes isn't an option with the little ones any other ideas I can try? In the mean time I'm searching my cook books. Thanks for any meal ideas you can give me with ground beef.

  • Barbeque Cups
    1 lb. ground beef, pork or turkey
    1 bottle barbeque sauce
    2 cans refrigerator biscuits
    Shredded Cheddar cheese

    Brown ground beef, drain. Return to pan and add sauce, heat through. Flatten each biscuit out and place in muffin tins, to form a cup. Spoon beef mixture into each cup. Cook about 10 minutes (check biscuit can for oven temperature, and reduce by 25 degrees). Remove from oven and add cheese. Return to oven for a couple more minutes, just to melt cheese.
