ISO Ground Beef Suggestions...

I have a pound of ground beef that I need to cook up tonight. Any suggestions?

Normally we have 'sketti, tacos, meatloaf and maid rites with it. I'm needing something new and different.

Help?

My kids just love when I take ground beef, add finely chopped onion, parsely,garlic,worcestershire, parmeasan cheese, salt, pepper, bread crumbs,and egg and then make dime sized meat balls, cook in oven or pan fry..Make spanish rice and the cooked meatballs..It makes a ton of meatballs and everyone is happy..I just add salad and warm bread and a veggie..dinners ready.

Since you have only a pound, I would make Pastitsio. Saute the ground beef with onion, drain the fat. Season the ground beef with cinnamon & a tsp or 2 of tomato paste. Meanwhile make a batch of penne or macaroni. In another pan, make a bechamel or white sauce. Drain the pasta. Layer in a baking dish, the cooked pasta, & ground beef mixture. Keep layering & sprinkle the top with nutmeg. Cover with foil and bake at about 350 for about 45 minutes, till everything is heated through. I posted a recipe on this site.

Hi. Greek meatballs have a unique flavor, with mint and oregano, and a wonderful, easy tomato sauce with cinnamon. This sounds close to the recipe I have at home: allfood.com: Recipes I make them about the size of a golf ball and bake them in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes rather than cooking them in a skillet; then I put them in the tomato sauce. It's great with orzo or other small pasta and a Greek salad.

Brown it, drain it, mix in two or three tablespoons of spaghetti sauce. Then you can either serve it on hamburger buns to make Sloppy Giuseppes, or mix in 1/2 pound of cooked elbow macaroni and more of the sauce for home made beefaroni! Serve with your favorite green salad.

I add milk to pretty much this same recipe and make meatballs.

I LOVE Spanish rice too.

Saute or caramelize some green peppers and onions. Cook your hamburger. Add this mixture to some cooked rice and mix in a can or two of Ro-Tel.

OR: Saute onions, garlic,cook hamburger, add some cooked macaroni, or rigatoni, some tomato sauce, and of course salt and pepper. Heat through and EAT!

OR: Cook hamburger, add 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 8 oz. of sour cream, garlic powder, heat. Put in a casserole dish and top with canned Hungry Jack biscuits. Cook on biscuit temperature (420 or 425 maybe?). Turn biscuits over after 10 minutes then cook the remaining 10 minutes.

I like this. It's one of my favorites.

Recipes : Loosemeat Sandwiches : Food Network

Whether it's on a roll with some chopped onions like described, or in a taco shell with onions and cheddar cheese.

Miss Angie...

Season with anything and everything you like! Divide into two equal patty portions. Make them somewhat thick. Wrap a piece of bacon around the outside and secure with a tooth pick or two or three...Cook on the grill!
You can call it a "Mississippi Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon"

Enjoy!
