    Usually got about 50lbs of it in the freezer ready to rock. My 3 year old basically will only eat meat in "burger form" so we have ground everything for him. For me ground beef is good for a quick meal of anything. I get the fattiest they sell and go on. US Wellness has has 75/25 I believe. Yummmmmmm

      They have a "petburger" in the dogfood section that is 65/35 for 90% of the product plus it includes 5%liver and 5%heart. So that is about 75/25 for the whole thing. It is all human quality processing but, because of the high fat content , they have to label it "for pet consumption only". A good way to sneak some offal in for squeamish family members. Just don't tell them and they would never know.

      It's also really cheap. And yummy.

      Don't tell my dog or I'd have to share.

        Hubby and I eat ground beef from the grass-fed half cow we bought. We usually eat it 2 or 3 times a week. Some variations that we like:

        "Flavored" hamburgers. Hubby's favorite is "Swedish meatball" hamburgers. I use the same seasonings that I do for Swedish meatballs, but I mix it up and form it into patties and he throws them on the grill. The same works with Italian seasoning, curry seasoning, "Hawaiian" seasoning (pineapple and peppers finely chopped and mixed in), "Southwest" seasoning (finely chopped hot peppers and onions)... use your imagination.

        Another hamburger favorite is "surprise" burgers. Make two thin patties, put your food of choice in between them and seal up the edges, then grill. Inside... bacon and cheese. Sliced tomatoes. Mushrooms. Apple slices. (Hey, I did say "surprise"!)

        Other ideas:
        Stroganoff.
        Chili.
        Stir-fry.
        Browned with curry sauce.
        Fried and mixed in with scrambled eggs.
        Soup (great with leftover veg from other meals).
        Sloppy Joes.
        Meat 'n cheese (like mac 'n cheese but with meat, and good quality cheese).
        Spaghetti (with spaghetti squash as the "pasta").
        Stuffed peppers.
        Meatloaf.

          I've never seen Mark say to avoid 100% grass-fed ground beef.... and I probably wouldn't avoid it even if I had... it's half the price per pound of most of the other grass-fed cuts! The fattier stuff is cheaper, too, and the fat is one big reason I'm getting the grass-fed, right? (now if I could just get whole foods to stop cutting the FAT off all of the lovely local grass-fed briskets... *sigh*)

          I like to fry up a pound at a time as "emergency protein" - season with salt, pepper, garlic, garam masala or chinese five spice, or cumin, or... whatever tickles your fancy at the moment - keep covered in the fridge to be eaten when you need something in your stomach NAO! - and/or eat later in the week.

          We also make delicious burgers - fold some salt, pepper, chopped garlic and onion into the meat, sometimes we stuff with grass-fed cheese, which oozes out when you cut into the burger... *drool* - Serve over a bed of baby spinach or arugula, maybe a side of brussels sprouts w/ bacon and/or a sweet potato?

          I haven't made a grass-fed meatloaf, but... that can't be far behind. I used to make atkins meatloaf muffins, I should pull that recipe out again (I believe it contained a lot of cheese, eggs, some onions, and some worcestershire sauce...) - those were great to grab and go!

            Since I'm cooking for one, I usually try to batch and freeze. And ground beef works well for me. I'll mix up a batch of meatloaf and bake 2 servings immediately and form the remainder into little meatballs or burger shapes to freeze for small servings later. They're small, so they cook up fast in the oven for those emergency dinners when you need food in your stomach in 20 minutes flat. Plus, they don't feel at all like leftovers because they're not meat loaf again and there has been quite some delay between the meatloaf and the later serving... Plus, I have about 12 meatloaf and meatball recipes I rotate, so I rarely have the same recipe in a four-month period.

            Sometimes, I just brown it and mix with veggies.

            The brown it with onions and add red wine and cook it down idea sounds like something worth trying!

              I eat twice a day and one of my meals is ground beef most days of the week!

              I love these! I usually get all my beef from Novy Ranches as it's local for me. The owner of the ranch owns the vet clinic where I take my pets. I order online and pick it up from their store next door to the clinic 5 minutes from my house. But they don't have anything like this pet burger from US Wellness so I make sure I'm always stocked up on it. It's delicious!

                one of my favourite foods,also minced lamb too.(minced is what we call ground meat in england).
                burgers are good but my latest way is to simmer it in home made stock with herbs/spices.
