Browned GB and chopped onion, rice, can of undiluted tomato soup, sauerkraut. Water or beef broth to thin it if desired. Simmer and serve. I love this stuff, DH was uncertain at first, now he likes it.

I usually make this recipe when I am short in time. I mix the ground beef with minced onion, chopped green pepper, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. I place the mix in a baking dish and spread it to make an even layer. Then I cut 2 potatoes into coarse slices and place them on the top. Add 1/2 cup of water and bake in the oven while covered for 30 min. then 5 min. uncovered. Easy recipe and could be served with rice.

when my kids were growing up. money was tight and i was working mom. they loved ground beef browned with a can of beef gravy over mashed potatoes. it would work with rice as well. they liked canned corn niblets on top. sounds disgusting but was cheap , fast and they loved it.

Homemade cheezburger mac helper (ground beef, elbow pasta, beef broth, shredded cheddar, cheddar cheese soup and spices) and steamed and buttered fresh baby spinach.

How do you brown the beef into the tiny pieces? My GB usually comes out in marble sizes chunks.

You can mix the ground beef with some water. Use your hands to break up the meat, it will separate. You can either drain off the water, or let it evaporate as you cook it.

On the subject of breaking up ground meat, I use two dinner forks. As the meat (and usually, for most recipes, chopped onion and garlic) browns, I periodically take the two forks and break up the chunks.

Meat loaf or meat balls. Any recipe for either would do.
