Sloppy joes
beefy vegetable soup
spaghetti
meat and gravy (usually over roasted carrots and potatoes)
meatloaf

Some of those aren't super fast (meatloaf and soup), but the prep is quick.

Heinz chili sauce, brown beef and simmer in sauce for 20 minutes, then eat in tacos or over hot dogs

Re: Favorite ground beef recipes?

Homemade stroganoff... okay, not super healthy in itself, but quick and delicious!

1lb ground beef
2 cans of mushrooms or a few diced fresh mushrooms
minced garlic
sour cream
cream of mushroom soup
egg noodles

I brown the meat with 2 tbsp of minced garlic and mushrooms, then drain it. Add a half a cup of sour cream and the can of cream of mushroom soup. Stir and let it simmer for 5-8mins. Serve over cooked egg noodles, and I usually serve with a side salad or a veggie side such as green beans!

Re: Favorite ground beef recipes?

This is my ground beef arsenal, and for any pasta we use jerusalem artichoke noodles if you want it to be healthier.

Swedish meatballs over rice or noodles
Shepherd's pie (not fast; a bit of prep)
Stuffed peppers
Stuffed cabbage (not fast either really)
Tacos
Beef vegetable soup
Cheeseburger soup
Meatloaf
Spaghetti with meatballs
Lasagna

I'd be happy to pass along actual recipes if any of these spark your interest.

Okay, I actually use this meatball recipe, which we LOVE for everything: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/the-bes...ls/detail.aspx

And I use the sauce from this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/swedish...ar/detail.aspx

But you could just use that whole recipe as it includes meatballs too; I just haven't tried them yet.
