Ground Beef Recipes Everyone Will Love
By MARIA SCINTO
Porcupine Meatballs
The meatballs are made with ground beef and the "prickles" come from the rice that's mixed into the meat to stretch it out and make the meal budget-friendly. The meatballs are then simmered in tomato sauce, and the rice doesn't have to be cooked since the sauce does that for you.
Cowboy Stew
This recipe takes typical chili ingredients — ground beef, tomatoes, chiles, beans — and then adds an interesting twist by including sliced kielbasa. Using a pressure cooker makes the stew taste like it's been simmering on the range all day, but it actually takes less than half an hour.
Taco Pie
This taco pie starts with a pre-baked pie shell, and the filling consists of spicy ground beef with all the taco fixings — scallions, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, and cilantro — stirred right in. There's no top crust on the pie, but there’s a hidden cheesy layer underneath the pie filling.
Tex-Mex Meatballs
These meatballs are cooked in a sauce made from melted cheese and Ro-Tel, making for a chunkier, meatier version of the classic Ro-Tel dip. Like the dip, these Tex-Mex meatballs pair well with a side of tortilla chips, though you can also serve them over rice for a tasty main dish.
Blue Cheese Burgers
These drool-worthy burgers are cooked on the grill, then topped with a heaping helping of melty, cheesy goodness. As a crowning touch, they're finished off with blue cheese's best friend: a Buffalo-style sauce made with Frank's RedHot Sauce.
