    Ground Beef Recipes!

    Primal Fuel
    Looking for any and all ground beef recipes, I wish I could afford more ribeyes but grass fed ground beef is much cheaper and just as good for you. Meatballs, burgers, stuffed peppers, whatever you've made and has come out well. Kind of a noob in the kitchen still but gettin better every day. Bring on the recipes! Where's the beef!?

    Taco salad! (brown meat, drain off most grease unless you like it greasy, add taco seasonings (I get mine from costco), about a cup or two of water, mix it good, simmer till the water is mostly gone and the meat is moist. Spoon over lettuce, add taco sides like shredded cheese, guac, whatever you like, grab fork)

    Swedish meatballs! (mix raw ground beef, an egg, 1/2 teaspoon allspice and dill, salt and pepper to taste. roll into walnut sized balls. In pan fry half an onion with butter (or oil of your choice), when soft add 1 cup chicken stock and 1 cup beef stock, bring to a simmer, add beef balls. Simmer till beef is done. Mix in sour cream if you choose.) The original recipe.

    Stuffed peppers (cut hole in top of peppers like you would a pumpkin. remove seeds, blanch (quick boil) in boiling water for 3 minutes. remove and set aside. brown beef, mix in whatever you want: I usually do onions and tomatoes but whatever looks good in the fridge goes in, including leftover chicken bits, kale, spinach, you get the idea. cook till the additions are heated or cooked through (I wait till onions are soft). Spoon beef mixture into peppers. Add cheese. Place in 375 degree oven and bake for 20 mins or so.) Original recipe (scroll down to Make Me Stuffed Peppers)

    Meatloaf: Recipe (don't make the tomato topping, its nasty and adds extra carbs)

    Soup -- depending on how much broth you use, it can be thick like stew. Dice carrots, celery, onion. Cook veggies in chicken or beef stock along with bay leaf, thyme, garlic, salt and pepper. When veggies are done, add ground beef and break it up. It's done as soon as the pink is gone. Freeze in portions, convenient and yummy.

    Here's my favorite recipe:
    1. Heat up some fat (oil or butter) in a skillet.
    2. Add ground beef and spices (salt, pepper, garlic powder or whatever you like) to skillet.
    3. Cook until done (separating the beef into small chunks with a utensil).
    4. Eat (with optional steamed vegetables or salad).

    I love this. I call it taco without the taco.

    Sometimes I also make "lazy burgers", which goes something like this:

    1. Mix ground beef, 1-2 eggs and spices in a bowl.
    2. Make burgers from the mix (I just make "balls" with my hands and squash them flat on a cutting board).
    3. Cook in skillet with fat until done (which is medium/rare for me).
    4. Eat (with optional cheese and/or salad).

    I'll actually be making burgers tonight I think, I like norak's simple recipe and I have some salsa and avocado to top them with. Feel free to suggest alternative toppings! Eventually burgers just become salads with enough toppings so either way it's a win win.

    Another thing I like to do with burgers is to have a fried egg on top. No need for condiments. Tasty bit of food porn there.
