What to do with ground beef?

We got some ground beef at a great deal $1.89 a lb.



Now, what to do with it? Mind you, I am not turning on the oven and the grill is about out of propane.


Last night I decided to make individual meatloaf type patties, potatoes baked in the crock pot and fresh steamed broccoli




First was the meat.



Notice the look of concentration! He is "reading" the part about washing your hands.


Next mix two eggs...


An orange bell pepper, onion, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, and misc other spices.....











Then stop and take a pic of sister.......
I pan fried these on a med heat....





These tuned out OK, but hind sight, I should have chopped the onion and pepper finer.


I am glad we have ketchup!








Tonight?


ooh la la!




Hearty Southwest Stew.




  • 2 lbs of ground beef


  • 1 onion


  • 1 can chopped tomatoes (I had whole stewed)


  • 1 cup salsa (I used a can of rotel)


  • 1 can of pintos ( I had northern)


  • corn


  • cumin


  • garlic powder


  • salt &pepper


  • cheese for the top


Fry the meat and onion. Put everything in but the cheese after the meat is cooked!



I had to add some more water, and an extra fresh tomato. I let it simmer for about half an hour. It was so yummy! I served it with some rolls and butter!
There was no left overs!
