  • One Pound Ground Beef- Let's get Creative!

    Defrosted a pound of ground beef. I know I could make burgers or chili or spaghetti sauce. Anyone thinking outside of the box this Monday?

        Porcupines are meatballs with rice baked in a tomato sauce.

        1/8 teaspoon pepper
        1 large can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

        Mix the ground beef, rice, 1/2 cup of water, the chopped onion, , salt, garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper. Shape the mixture by tablespoons into 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet and cook the meatballs over medium heat until brown; drain off excess grease. Add tomato sauce, remaining 1/2 cup water, and Worcestershire sauce; heat to boiling. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 35 to 45 minutes.

          I was just looking through recipes trying to decide what to cook this week. I am thinking lasagna roll ups. Make your meat pasta sauce, mix thawed spinach , ricotta cheese and seasonings. Boil noodles, spread spinach , cheese mix on cooked noodle and roll up. Pour sauce in baking dish, reserve some, put roll ups in dish, pour sauce over it and bake, covered. uncover and add cheese on top and bake uncovered until cheese melts.
          If you are interested I will post the recipe.

              I bet Fatkat's casserole would be good with ground beef and 1/2 a jar or so of salsa...

              Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

              1 pound ground pork sausage, your preference
              1 (8oz) package cream cheese
              2 (8oz) packages refrigerated crescent rolls

              Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet, cook sausage and drain. While sausage is hot, stir in the cream cheese until melted and the mixture is creamy.

              Open one can of crescent rolls and form the dough into the shape of a rectangle, closing the seams to make one big sheet of dough. Place in a lightly greased baking dish. Spread cream cheese and sausage mixture on top of dough, leaving a 1/2" area around the edges. Repeat steps with the other can of crescent rolls and lay the dough on top of the cream cheese and sausage mixture. Pinch the upper and lower dough edges together.

                These all sound great! Have a lot of one pound packages of beef in the freezer. Will keep these ideas in my pocket. Thanks! Still have to decide.

                  I would have to say that these are my family's top 4 favorite things to do with beef. We love them all.


                  Zippy Skillet Rice

                  1 cup rice uncooked
                  2 Tblsp butter
                  1/2 c each green pepper and onion
                  2 cloves minced garlic
                  2 cans ( 14 oz. each) diced tomatoes
                  1 tsp. chili powder
                  1 tsp salt
                  1/2 tsp. pepper
                  1 tsp. tumeric
                  1 lb. ground beef
                  1/2 cup shredded cheese

                  Brown beef in large skillet, drain. In same skillet, saute rice in butter. Add onions and peppers and garlic. Cook about 5 minutes. Add cooked beef and remaining ingredients (except for cheese) Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. Stirring once or twice until rice is tender. Add water if necessary to cook rice. Sprinkle with cheese before serving.

                  I rarely add the cheese and I used a can of enchalada sauce for a different taste this last time I made this.


                  BBQ Hamburgers

                  1 1/2 lb ground beef
                  3/4 cup rolled oats
                  1 cup milk
                  3 Tblsp onions
                  salt and pepper

                  make into cakes and brown

                  Sauce:

                  1 cup ketchup
                  3 tsp vinegar
                  2 tsp worchestershire sauce
                  6 tsp onion
                  1/2 cup water
                  2 tsp sugar
                  Heat and pour over cakes. Bake slowly for 1 hour.


                  Calico Beans

                  1 can each, green beans, pork and beans, kidney beans, butter beans
                  1/2 lb. bacon, diced and cooked
                  1 lb. ground beef, cooked
                  1 cup chopped onion
                  3/4 cup brown sugar
                  2 tsp. salt
                  1 tsp. dry mustard
                  1/2 cup vinegar
                  1/2 cup ketchup
                  liquid smoke, optional

                  Mix together. Bake in a slow oven for a couple of hours.

                  Sometimes in the last 30 minutes, I cover the top with canned bisquits and bake until golden brown.



                  Favorite Lentils

                  In a large pot, heat water to boiling
                  and add lentils.
                  Cook 20 minutes.
                  1 1/2 cups lentils
                  1 qt. water

                  Saute in skillet,
                  2 Tblsp. butter or oil
                  1 med. onion, chopped
                  1 clove garlic, minced

                  Add:
                  1 lb. ground beef
                  Cook until browned.
                  Add lentils, water and all to beef.
                  Add seasonings:
                  2 beef bouillon cubes
                  1 tsp sugar
                  1 tsp salt
                  1 tsp cumin
                  1/2 tsp pepper

                  Cover and cook low for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add more water if dry.
                  Serve over rice.
                  A man of words and not of deeds, is like a garden full of weeds.

                    Mini sliders?
                    I mix my ground beef with about 1/4 mayo (YES...I KNOW...DONT LECTURE ME ), 1/2Tbls wochestercestershioreshire sauce, and some garlic (I use "garlic garlic" from tastefully simple). Mix really well, and form small patties. I use the martins potato dinner rolls (like parker house size) for the rolls. I also put out ALL THE FIXINGS so veryone can make thier own...we call it our "Burger Buffet" night.

                    I know, I know, its not outside the box...but sometimes the box is nice and cozy.

                      Those sound good Sewcute. I wish we had Martins here in Texas. We lived in the town that makes them in PA. We miss eating them so much. Everytime we go east (once a year) we buy 4 bags of them.

                      Anyhow, the sliders sound great!

                            If you can't figure out what to make with it right now, I'd just crumble it up with chopped onion, cook it, then freeze it and have it sometime in the future. Then you'd have a quick meal, almost ready.
