Ground Beef Round Up: Tips, Techniques and Tasty Recipes

posted in Meat, Poultry and Seafood by Kathy Maister

According to feedback I’ve received, my 30-to-60 second “Tips and Techniques Videos” have been a huge success! Since I have many recipes blog posts and videos which show you what to do with ground beef, two “Tips and Techniques Videos” in particular, Thawing Ground Beef and Browning Ground Beef should be very useful in learning some beef basics.

When buying ground beef, there are many different levels of fat content to choose from. How to Buy and Store Ground Beef (blog post) will help you figure that one out!

I always keep a pound of ground beef in the freezer. It can be easily defrosted and made into many different things including:

Tex-Mex Burgers (video)

Regular Hamburgers (blog post)

Sweet and Sour Meatballs (video)

and Meatloaf! (video)

Once you have browned and drained the ground beef, there are tons of things you can make with the cooked ground beef, including my all time favorite Sante Fe Chili (video).

Or for a much quicker chili recipe, try my 2 Alarm Chili (blog post)

English Muffin Pizzas (video) are a great snack or a meal.

If you are feeling adventurous, try some Lasagna with Meat Sauce (blog post).

To make this, follow the directions in my Lasagna Video but skip the spinach step.

Lastly, Taco Salad (blog post) could easily be my new favorite salad! In the 20 minutes this takes to cook you can be preparing the salad (video). Taco Salad is surprisingly filling and even non-salad lovers are going to love this recipe!

Cheers!
