    This..

    I eat "taco" salad at least once a week...

    Brown 1lb ground beef. Season to taste with chili powder, red pepper flakes, cilantro, salt, pepper and garlic.
    Serve over spring greens.
    top with an avacado, several tablespoons of organic salsa I get from the farmers market and the juice of half a lime.

    It is honestly one of my favorite meals.

      How do you make ground beef kebabs?
      Yes. You do. It is the best!

      I've done beef kebabs like this: Mediterranean Feast - Health-Bent | Health-Bent. I used a mixture of lamb and beef, but just beef would probably still be delicious. Here's my version: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...tml#post429852

        Basically you take ground beef and make an extra large patty out of it, and cook it like a steak. "Salisbury Steak" is when you cover it in a brown gravy of some extraction with onions or something. There's a restaurant around here that makes one with sauteed mushrooms that's pretty tasty actually, but I can make about 3-4 of them with better quality beef for what they charge.

        Ground beef breakfast ideas- browned ground beef w/onions, and then scrambled with eggs.

        Also "beef egg bake" put the ground beef in the bottom of a baking pan with bacon, veggies, mushrooms, and crack a dozen or so eggs on top and bake until the eggs are golden brown, and serve in rectangles.... with sriracha.

          Eggplant and zucchini lasagna with meatballs. Be liberal with the cheese. Whole milk mozzarella, ricotta and lots of romano. And top with sauteed cherry peppers.

              Meatballs made with 85% ground beef, topped with tomato gravy, romano cheese and sauteed cherry peppers on top of a bed of fried grated zucchini (grated zucchini turned into a pancake with egg and flax meal fried in olive oil).

              Just an idea.

                Bahahaha I saw this and thought it was just a giant hamburger patty/meat cake the size of the plate.

                  I seriously love you guys. Primal peops are the best. Here is the whole tread for an easy copy/paste.

                  Primal/Paleo Ground Beef Recipes

                  tomato meat sauce with spaghetti squash
                  shepard's (cottage) pie
                  stroganoff with cauliflower instead of noodles
                  extra sloppy joes (no bun, use a from-scratch recipe rather than manwitch)
                  no-bean chili
                  stuffed cabbage with cauliflower rice
                  stuffed peppers
                  stuffed zuchini
                  kebabs (can be spiced with garam masala for indian flavor or cumin, garlic and paprika for middle eastern)
                  Meatloaf bound with purred veggies and egg
                  Salisbury steak
                  meatza
                  taco salad/taco bowl (I don't like lettuce much, so I layer taco meat with salsa, sour cream and guac and a little cheddar on top to make a 5 layer dip without the beans or tortilla chips. a spoon is a much more efficient way to get it to your mouth)
                  simple saute and crumble with veggies on hand and spices and sauces to taste (perfect for the last bits of things hanging out in the fridge.)
                  Taco soup
                  What a friend of mine calls ghetto goulash (made with ground beef)
                  ALL KINDS of burgers. check out the website for the counter or another build-your-own burger restaurant for inspiration. if you've never tried a burger with a fried egg or with a slice of grilled pineapple drizzled with soy or teriyaki sauce, you can't say you're bored.

                  and then there are hundreds of things you can do with meatballs
                  Note: recipes often call for breadcrumbs, I use sauteed minced veggies (mushrooms and onions work well once they give up some of their moisture) or almond meal and up the binding factor with some egg.

                  meatballs with tomato sauce and zuchini pasta
                  swedish meatballs (small ones in cream sauce with nutmeg)
                  "greek" meatballs with feta and chopped olives in them, dip in lemon aoli
                  if you're eating rice you can make porcupine meatballs
                  meatballs in soup (albondigas-mexican, wedding soup- italian, Avoglemono-greek, pho-vietnamese)
                  if you're like me and love to explore other cultures through food these may be a good jumping off point for more meatballs Meatball - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and A collection of meatball recipes from around the world (the latter has a recipe for liver and juniper meatballs I am not adventurous enough to try at the moment)

                  if you do primal baking (perhaps coconut flour biscuits) and eat dairy AND have made your own bbq sauce, you could try to convert this recipe which I loved when I was young and didn't know better. Barbecue Cups - Frugal, Cheap, Dinner Recipes

                  if you're not a big cook and need help with how to translate some of these recipes to primal, (or find them in the first place) let me know, I may be able to help.

                  I absolutely love meatloaves! The curry one from the free book is a winner! And the brazillian one from this site stuffed with eggs and ham is out of this world.

                  One great secret I learned from Cordaine's recipe book was to do stuffed everything like cabbage rolls, peppers or zuccinis or whatever with using boiled eggs instead of rice, YUM!!!!

                  If you soak your beans/do slow cooker real chili once in a while is a fine thing.

                  I love basic tomato sauce with mushrooms, peppers and carrots and basil, it goes well with any veg that replaces pasta

                  We love meat ratatoille, with grilled eggplants and zuccinis

                  Stir-fried with snow peas and musrooms goes great over shiritake noodles.

                  Breakfast Curry ( just finished )
                  coconut oil/ beef tallow 1T of each
                  whole cumin, mustard, coriander, red pepper flake ( say 1/4 T of each, i cook be intuition and feel after 35 years <shrug>)
                  Sea Salt
                  12 oz ground beef
                  1T Curry Powder
                  1t Tumeric Extract ( yeah you probably dont have this, i got it from my naturopath for medicinal use but damn it packs a punch, else double the curry powder )
                  1/2 cup Bone Broth ( you have some simmering in the Crock pot right this moment dont you ???? LOL )
                  1/2 can coconut milk
                  1/3 cup coconut

                  items listed in the order they were added and the ground beef was 90% browned before i added the Curry powder
                  the shredded coconut was a last 2 min of cooking item

                  We're a big fan of this:
                  Healthy Hamburger Helper GAPS SCD Paleo Primal compatible recipe for ground beef

                  You can change the tone of this dish by what spices you choose. Last time I made it, I added sweet curry spice. Delish.

                  My favorite is Curry Beef Lettuce Wraps.

                  I cook 1lb ground beef in a skillet, adding salt and curry powder to taste (I like a lot of curry). If it's super-lean I also add coconut oil to allow the meat to cook more evenly and quickly. Serve wrapped in lettuce with mango slices. Quick, simple, and super-tasty. Minimal clean up too!

                  One of my favorite stir-fry meals is a big cast iron skillet where I have sweat some onions in a little coconut oil, throw in a handful or more of cut okra, zucchini and or yellow squash, some shrooms, sliced radishes, 1-3 baby carrots that are sliced, cooked just till tender, then add a decent amount of pre-cooked ground meat, then a full bunch of Dino kale (stem vein removed, kale chopped) thrown on the top, with an occasional handful of little frozen peas ... turn the heat off and let it all set around and get happy. Finish it off with a little onion powder, a bit of sea salt and some coconut aminos. If I think about it, I'll throw a few olives into the mix too.
                  Wonderful as is, and even better the next day with eggs and some fresh arugula or spinach for breakfast.

                  Ground Beef & Cabbage «

                  Hamburger gravy (the ultimate comfort food!): saute chopped onion and mushrooms in fat of your choice, add ground beef, season to taste with salt & pepper. When it's almost done, add heavy cream-half a cup or so. Let simmer a few minutes, until thickened and serve over mashed cauliflower.

                  I could eat browned hamburger with onions, salt, pepper, garlic, cumin and a side of sweet potato every day. My favorite quick meal.

                  I love this quick coconut curry from clothesmakethgirl.com

                  Also, picadillo is another hamburger dish I love.

                    My favorite is ground beef and cabbage with red bell peppers. Season with fresh black pepper and fish sauce. Super easy and tasty. Make a butt-load and take leftover for lunch.

                      Oh, is it all frozen right now? If not then maybe make up some hamburger patties and freeze them for easy lunches/dinners.

                        I winged it on a cottage pie the other day. Carrots and onions, beef liver and ground beef, and cauliflower topping with an egg in it. This was the first thing I cooked in the dorm kitchen I share with 5 other ladies, and I was so nervous that someone was going to come home while I was handling this massive liver creature. Somehow I thought it would be like a steak... but it practically had appendages. It turned out delicious though.

                        I'm going to use the rest of the ground to make a meatza inside a portabello. If I ate just a meat pizza I think my roommates would freak out.
