Can you use some new ground beef recipes? I’m all about teaching the world to cook from scratch. I dream about raising a cow, but that’s not going to happen. So, I buy grass-fed ground beef when I can. It’s crazy but the meat tastes better when it’s organic and grass-fed, to me anyway. You know when you bite into a hamburger and it actually tastes like beef? That’s what I’m talking about. Mark can’t tell the difference, but I sure can!
Please keep in mind these are printable recipes that I hope you decide to print for your recipe stash. We may want to cook these ground beef recipes now or after a major disaster or unforeseen emergency. These items in each recipe hopefully will be in your freezer, or pantry.
Ground Beef Recipes
Just so you know, some of these recipes are at least 40-50 years old. I have been making these since Mark and I were married. I grew up with a single mom who taught me to cook from scratch and on a shoestring so to speak. I continue to cook that way now that I’m in my semi-retired years. It’s all about saving money on my grocery bill.
Ingredients: ground beef, onions, Chili con Carne, chili with beans, Frito’s, black olives, grated cheese. This is a recipe you can make at the last minute for dinner, or take to someone who is sick. It’s easy and most of the ingredients are probably in your home “grocery store.”
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 can chili con carne
- 1 can chili with beans
- 1-2 cups shredded cheese
- 1 can sliced black olives
- 1 small bag of Frito’s (original size)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Brown the ground beef with the chopped onion, drain the grease if any. Set aside. Grease a casserole dish, place a layer of Frito’s in the bottom. Next, add a layer of ground beef and onion on top of the Frito’s. Spread a layer of chili con carne as the third layer. The fourth layer is the chili with beans, olives, and grated cheese. Finish the casserole with a thin layer of Frito’s and grated cheese. Bake for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
