    Favorite uses of ground beef?

    Hey everyone,

    It's that time of the year when the family's running out of all the yummy steaks from that half a cow we bought last year, but we still have tons of roasts, which I can easily do something awesome with, and tons of ground beef. Patties and Primal Chili can get a bit repetitive, so what are your favorite uses for your ground beef?

    Cuban Picadillo over spaghetti squash with fried egg on top. Let me know if you need a recipe.

    This is from my Cuban wife's head so rough estimates

    Brown 2lbs ground beef with chopped onion and bell pepper (optional), drain
    Add 2 small cans tomato sauce
    1/4 cup red wine (optional)
    tsp garlic powder
    tsp oregano (or more to taste)
    1/2 tsp cumin (or more to taste)
    1/2 cup chopped olives (Manzanilla/pimento stuffed)
    raisins (yes raisins) to taste 1/4 - 1/2 cup
    salt and pepper to taste
    simmer 20 mins

    Traditionally served over white rice but I substitute shredded cabbage or spaghetti squash.

    Fried egg on top!

    Ripe plantains fried in coconut oil is perfect side dish

    I use leftovers for omelettes

    Meatloaf makes me happy, w/primal ketchup.
