Re: Ground beef meal ideas?

I mostly find myself using it to stuff peppers, especially if I have some italian sausage to mix in.

I also mix it with pureed carrot, sauteed onion and garlic, and some tomato paste and diced tomatoes to make a simple pasta sauce. In the winter I dump this in a casserole pan with some corn and top it with cheese. Sometimes we swap diced tomatoes for salsa. This is my "oops I forgot to plan dinner and only have ten minutes to cook" winter meal.

My mom always made a casserole of ground meat, mashed potatoes and shredded cheddar cheese. Baked in the oven for 30-40 minutes on 350 and voila. Delicious.

Re: Ground beef meal ideas?

Cook up some pasta. Brown the ground beef with a little bit of salt, pepper, onion (or dried minced onion is what I use, I don't like regular diced onions) and a little bit of red pepper flake, all to taste. With the ground beef, mix a half a bag of frozen corn (or a can or two of corn) and half a bag of frozen peas (or can) or broccoli cuts. Add a can or two of diced tomatoes, then mix with the ground beef. It's actually really good and it's pretty quick too.
