I'm not in the mood for stuffed peppers, chili, meatloaf, meatballs, spaghetti, tacos or enchiladas.
Anyone got anything else? Thanks!

Brown & add cream of mushroom soup over rice or pasta. Cream of celery will work too. I'm thinking here that you are also tired of the obvious hamburger?

Shepherd's Pie

Brown up some ground beef and drain off any grease and water that cooks out. Add a minced onion and a minced clove of garlic, cook until they start to sweat. Splash in a bit of Worcestershire sauce. Add some frozen peas, cover, and steam until the peas are hot.

At this point, you can either go the fast-n-easy way and add a can of cream of mushroom soup, or you can make up a roux and use that to make a cream sauce. Either way, once you get a nice mix of G-B, onion/garlic, peas and sauce, dump that in a wide shallow casserole dish. Top with spoonsful of left-over mashed potatoes. Bake at 350 until the G-B mixture starts to bubble up between the piles of mashed potatoes, about 20-30 minutes.

Sorry not to be more precise with the measurements; that's one of our classic "by dump and by dash" dishes, and it's very forgiving of variances in the proportions of the ingredients.

Grilled Cajun Burgers

Season burger with Cajun Seasoning. Top with sauteed Green Pepper and Onion and your choice of cheese. (I like Monterey Jack Cheese).. and your choice of bread... (I like a little mayo on mine)

Great with Corn on the Cob!

1 lb ground beef
2 boxes mac 'n cheese
1 small can tomato paste
1 medium can mexicorn

Brown the beef and drain the grease
Cook the mac 'n cheese as usual

Combine the beef and mac n' cheese. Mix thoroughly.
Add the tomato paste and mexi-corn. Mix thoroughly.

Get a baking pan (clear glass if you have one) big enough to fit the mixture, spray with Pam (or whatever). Spread the mixture in the pan and level it out. Put your oven to around 350 or so. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes (until the edges just start to turn crisp). Season to taste.

(one bag frozen corn and a couple of diced peppers of your choice may be used as a substitute for canned mexicorn.)

Default Easy Beef Casserole

Don't scoff at this because it is a casserole. It is almost like one of the plethora of creations that came out in the casserole heyday of the 50's and 60's. Actually I first saw it published on one of the inserts with a bill from Atlanta Gas Light Company. It is pretty easy and quick and satisfies the comfort food need in me at times.


Beef 570 (Beef Casserole 070 - Easy Beef Casserole - Atlanta Gas Light Company)

1 pounds lean ground beef
cup milk
1 cup chopped onion
cup ketchup
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon salt
1 (10-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/3 cup sliced green olives (optional)

1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the beef and onion; drain.
2. Combine cream cheese, soup, milk, ketchup, and salt; blend until smooth.
3. Combine ground beef, cream cheese mixture and olives.
4. Turn into shallow 2-quart baking dish. Bake in 375F oven for 30 minutes.
5. Serve alone or over rice or noodles.

VARIATIONS: Add chopped/sliced black olives and/or mushrooms.

Yields 6 servings

Hobo stew

Form ground beef in patties and place each on a separate sheet of aluminum foil. Add diced carrots, potatoes, rutabaga, celery, and onion, in amounts to taste. Season with salt and pepper and a touch of Mrs. Dash. Fold the foil up to form sealed packets and place over hot coals in grill or campfire. Turn halfway through cooking, total cooking time 20 to 30 minutes depending on the heat.

When I make this, I usually start with about 2 lbs of ground beef which I divide into eight patties. Depending on the size of the vegetables, I generally allow one carrot, and one potato per packet. For eight servings I allow one small rutabaga or half a large one. It doesn't take much, but as the rutabaga roasts it sweetens and brings out the low notes in the flavor. I usually use two stalks of celery and one to two onions depending on size and distribute evenly among the eight packets.

While you've got the grill going cook up some corn on the cob, top the whole meal off with strawberry shortcake and ice tea or fresh lemonade. Hmmm...... guess I've talked myself into this for dinner tonight. Oh, wait, that's another thread!

Gound beef, taco seasoning, black beans, corn, rice, tomatoes, onions, pappers, all fried up in a pan- stuffed into a rolled tortilla (burrito style) with cheese and baked- the tortilla gets all crispy and contains all that tex/mex goodness

Thanks yall. no, I'm not opposed to burgers. I don't always like the over full feeling I get when I eat ground beef, but when I can get it cheaper on clearance than ground turkey, I may as well use it.
