about a pound of macaroni
whatever herbs you like, I used sage, and oregano, black pepper, red pepper flakes

Cook the onions, put aside, cook the ground beef, add the onions back into the pot. Add everything else and let it cook to blend the flavors. Simple food, but very good. Grub!
My mom used to make exactly the same thing, using spaghetti, and called it "slumgullion". It was so good!

I like this recipe because it easy and I have all the ingredients in my pantry. Any kind of cheese can be substituted for the cheddar. Other creamy soups could be used in place of the cream of mushroom. I think that a cheddar cheese soup would be really good.

Cheesy Beef Casserole

1 lb. browned hamburger
1 1/2 cups of grated cheddar cheese
2 cups cooked egg noodles
½ cup Parmesan cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Combine hamburger and egg noodles in a large bowl. Add cream of mushroom soup and mix well. Stir in cheddar cheese. Spoon mixture in to a 8x8-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

I need a new ground beef recipe. Maybe something without tomatoes/tomato sauce (use it too much) or mushrooms (y'all know they're not my favorite)............ what can you introduce to me?

Try this recipe, it has tomatoes, but no mushrooms. I posted it in the African recipes thread.

1/2 kilo minced beef
2 tomatoes
1 onion (medium size)
6 whole black peppers
6 cloves
3 Cardamom pods
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1tsp dhania(Fresh coriander)
salt according to taste.
1/4tsp Tumeric
3/4tsp chili powder
2tbs yogurt/or cream
1/2tsp ginger
1/4tsp crushed garlic
Finely chop the onion and saute in oil until light brown. Add all the spices including yogurt or cream and finely chopped tomatoes. Cook on medium heat till water is almost dried. Add mince meat and mix. Then add water, cover and leave to tenderize and water dries.

Lots of good ideas - sometimes I go to the freezer and hamburger something is about all I can think of. These will really come in handy. Jkath, I didn't know there was a child anywhere who didn't like cheese!!!!

Yep. It's a pain in the tushie!! However, I do sneak it in, much to the delight of my 10 year old. Don't know if the delight is because there's cheese, or because he knows his brother is eating it...!

I looked to make sure this wasn't already presented, and it isn't.

Meat Pie
1 lb. Ground Beef browned and rinsed
1 medium sized yellow onion, cut into small chunks
1 tsp. salt
3 cups peeled and diced potatoes
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
1/2 cup water (optional, to be used with the cornstarch)
1 tbs. cornstarch (optional)
2 tbs. butter

Standard Pie crust recipe for two crust pie

Line a pie pan with the first crust. Cook the veggies until just soft. Srain and put it a large bowl. Add the butter and spices. Combine the water and cornstarch and add to the veggies to make a light gravy. Add the ground beef and gently fold everything together. Fill the pie with the mixture. Top with the 2nd crust and bake at 424 until the top crust browns (about 30 minutes). Remove and serve with ketchup, beef gravie, or your favorite condiment.

For variety, you can dice rutabegga and throw that in as well. I'm sure you could add things like green beans, or baby peas if you wanted.

Hint: The filling can be eaten as a main course without the pie crust as well. It's pretty tasty just as is .

Or heat the mix in a baking dish until bubbling, and put canned biscuits on top. Bake at 400 until biscuits are browned.

my husband's mom used to cook alot of ground beef - when we met, i hardly cooked any. this was (until he met me heehee) his favorite dish - i thought it sounded horrible, but now it is one of my secret indulgences.......

BBQ Cups

1 lb. ground beef, brown sugar, bbq sauce, tube of biscuits, cheddar cheese

1. Brown ground beef
2. Drain, add some brown sugar and bbq sauce (I used KC Masterpiece)-heat through
3. Grease cupcake tins
4. Split biscuits (I use Grands) in half, fit bottom of biscuit in each cupcake
5. Fill each with some meat, top with some cheddar cheese
5. Place the top of the biscuit on each cup and seal the edges
6. Cooks according to biscuit directions or til brown

I hope you like it!
