We love hamburger gravy ... brown hamburger with onion and mushrooms, sprinkle with 3 tbl. of flour per pound of hamburger, stir until flour is browned, add 3 cups of beef broth (more or less depending on how think you want it), stir until smooth and thickened, serve over mashed potatoes, egg noodles or rice.

it's 2 versions but basically the same thing

2 very close versions of Carpathian Cabbage
Had a discussion going on the board with someone about this comfort food. I decided to post my versions and maybe she'll post hers too.
Carpathian Cabbage1
1 pound ground beef
1 onion chopped
1 sm head cabbage
1 can tomato soup undiluted
1 tablespoon garlic flavored vinegar, or regular vinegar with garlic powder added to it
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
Brown beef in large skillet pan and stir in the chopped onion sauté until tender. Quarter cabbage, chop fine to a shred. Drain fat from beef and stir in tomato soup and rest of ingredients except cabbage. Stir well, now add the cabbage and cover. Simmer for 25 minutes stirring occasionally. This goes nicely over steamed brown or white rice or buttered noodles.

Carpathian Cabbage 2
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons bacon drippings
˝ cup chopped onion
1 small head of cabbage, coarsely
shredded
1 can tomato soup
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
˝ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Brown meat in bacon drippings, breaking up meat as it cooks; push to one side of pan. Stir in onion and sauté till soft. Stir in cabbage along with soup, vinegar, salt and pepper. Heat to boiling; cover and simmer 25 minutes. 4-6 servings.

What about plain old spaghetty?

Stuffed cabage, or the lazy version of it. Meat ball soup. Pirogy.


Do you need more? I'm sure the list can go on. But what do you have in mind?

ended up sauteeing some peppers onions and mushrooms added the beef. Also boiled some instant rice and added that. I came out pretty good. It was a good exercise in cleaning out the fridge/pantry.

Nothing better.
Aunt Dot, I've never heard of a picadillo so I googled it and wow, it sounds wonderful. I love olives and I love raisins. I've never been fond of ground beef but this I think I'd like. All the recipes I saw showed it served with or over white rice. Is that how you serve it?

lasagne might be another obvious choice? Or you could make beef pasties? There are some good suggestions in this thread.

I made lasagna with ground beef once - never again. It's much too bland. I use Italian sausage.
