Growing up in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, there was one thing that all kids loved to hear when they asked “what’s for dinner?

Don’t get us wrong, jarred sauce has gotten much better in the years, but there still is nothing that beats the taste of a fresh pot of meat sauce.

This was a favorite dish of both kids and moms alike because it’s so delicious and so simple to prepare. It only takes about 5 minutes to cook the onions and ground beef, and maybe another 15 minutes to let the sauce slowly simmer.

This is the best homemade ground beef meat sauce recipe!

The ground beef is lightly seasoned as it browns to bring out the best flavors. Find your favorite brand of tomato products and try to purchase them on sale. Keep your sauces stocked so all you need to grab is some ground beef.

If money was ever tight, then this was and still is the perfect meal to cook. You can easily get a big filling dinner on the table that includes bread and salad for under $10.00!

The best way to get the full deliciousness of this pasta dish is to add some sauce in with the spaghetti as soon as the spaghetti is drained. Want to make it even better? When you drain the hot pasta, swirl in about 1-2 tablespoons of butter.

About Ground Beef Egg Bake

The first recipe: Ground Beef Egg Bake, is a great breakfast or lunch option that can be made ahead of time and last throughout the week! I started making this recipe years ago when my husband commuted back and forth from Reno to the ranch.

I made this rain or shine every Sunday for nearly two years! He’d take it with him for breakfast throughout the work week. Over the years the “egg bake” became the standing joke among friends – everyone knew I wouldn’t be able to go out to dinner or stay out late on a Sunday night because I had to get home to make the egg bake!

I started making this dish initially to be a high-protein, crustless quiche type dish. It’s so easy to make ahead of time, and then have as a quick grab-and-go breakfast option.

This recipe is a great option for using up vegetables or making the most of freezer veggies!

I’ve included mushrooms, spinach, and onions as the vegetable in this recipe, but any vegetable can be used! If you can’t find mushrooms, or just don’t like mushrooms, you can use broccoli, asparagus, tomatoes, or bell peppers.

This is such a great base recipe that can be adapted to fit your family’s taste preferences. If you enjoy more of a Mexican style egg dish, try using jalapenos, chili powder, bell peppers, and pepperjack cheese.

For more of an Italian style dish, use tomatoes, asparagus, herbs, and add in some parmesan cheese! You can really mix and match the ingredients here to make it your own!

Ground Beef Egg Bake Combination Ideas

  • Mushrooms + Spinach + Onions
  • Tomatoes + Asparagus + Mozzarella
  • Bell Peppers + Jalapenos + Pepper Jack
  • Broccoli + Cheddar

About Burger House Skillet

The second recipe: Burger House Skillet is a new one for our family, and I have to say, it’s one of my favorites!

This cheeseburger casserole is so flavorful and an excellent option for picky eaters! I have mentioned before finding a recipe that satisfies me and my husband can be tough!

This is one of those make-every-week winners that we both love!

Cheeseburger Skillet Ingredients

The burger house skillet is made using your cheeseburger favorites:

  • flavorful Ground Beef
  • sliced cheese: use any cheese you like!
  • caramelized onions and mushrooms
  • burger sauce: the cherry on top of this recipe!
  • Finished off with lettuce, pickles, and tomatoes!

This is another recipe that can be tweaked to fit your family’s tastes. If you don’t love mushrooms, skip them! Love pickles? Add extra! Want to spice things up? Add some jalapenos and use pepper jack cheese!

I’m not typically much of a sauce lover, but man-o-man this sauce is delicious! The perfect combination of the best burger sauces in one delicious bite!

How to Prepare the Cheeseburger Skillet

This is a super simple recipe that only takes about 15 minutes to put together:

  • Brown the beef and sauté the mushrooms & onions.
  • Top with cheese, and broil for a few minutes.
  • Finish with your favorite cheeseburger toppings!

I hope that you enjoy these recipes and find them helpful as we spend more time in the kitchen and find ways to get creative with new recipes. I’d love to hear some of your favorite Ground Beef recipes! Let me know in the comments section!

Best Ground Meat Recipes - Recipes

Recipes for ground beef is best prepared with lean ground beef because is a cheap and easy obtainable ingredient thousands of quick ground beef recipes.

Minced beef is a world-wide staple ingredient. Its versatility adds infinite possibilities to an endless number of beef dishes and is simply beef that's been ground or finely chopped, and it's available in a range of prices depending on what beef cut it is from but it usually originates from the tougher parts of the animal, like the flank and chuck.

The process of grounding the meat acts as a tenderizer which is useful for the tougher meat from the standard beef cuts. This tenderizing process reduces the dryness of the fat and improves the flavour.

When all the 'best' cuts and joints have been removed then whatever is left can be what you get. A lot of the tougher parts of the animal are used like the skirt/belly etc.

But you can also go to your local butcher and say I want six of your finest steaks grounded/minced for me he would gladly do it and charge you whatever the steaks would cost.

You have to be careful when buying ground beef because some butchers will keep braising /stewing beef until it begins to discolour slightly and if it does not sell by then the will mince it.

The leanest -- and most expensive per pound -- is sirloin, which is sometimes labelled "extra lean." Sirloin is more expensive than the other ground beef as it is a much tenderer and lean beef cut.

Next in line is the round steak, then chuck, and then regular "ground beef" or just plain "hamburger," which is the highest in fat and the least expensive.

A question that gets asked a lot is: “What is the difference between ground beef and hamburger beef?” There is basically one major difference and that is that fat may be added to hamburger beef and no fat may be added to minced beef. Regulations stipulate that both varieties cannot contain more that 30% fat. Seasoning may be added to both but no phosphates, binders, extenders or water is allowed to be added.

The lower the fat content, the less flavourful the meat will be when cooked. You might even have to add fat to the pan to cook extra lean ground beef since so little is rendered during cooking.

You might want to consider using the least expensive, regular ground beef in dishes that require you to brown the meat, because you can drain off most of the fat but still keep the beefy flavour.

I have listed some of the best ground beef recipes on this site. Please try a few (or all of them) and do not be shy to leave a comment about the once you have tried.

If you're like most cooks, you can't have too many ground beef recipes.

The biggest cooking mistake I've ever made was when I used beef broth for a turkey one year when all the stores were already closed up. The turkey gravy didn't taste good at all.

When I first started cooking, I was making a roast chicken in a glass Pyrex dish. It was looking pretty dry, so I added some water. You can probably guess what happened next. The Pyrex dish pretty much exploded in the oven. The next day I spent close to four hours cleaning glass out of the oven. I learned a lesson that day. I always have water heating now when I use a Pyrex baking dish, just in case I need to add any.

i once stuck my spoon into a moving blender while making pesto. there was green stuff all over the ceiling. /

My first attempt at making a pumpkin pie with fresh pumpkin instead of canned pumpkin was a disaster. I chopped the pumpkin and cooked it just right. Then I blended it. Unfortunately when I went to dump it into the pie shells we noticed that there were chunks of pumpkin floating on top. I didn't realize I should have used a "boat motor" blender to blend it as the regular blender I had obviously could not handle the job.

That for me would be broiling taco shells..It set my oven on fire and we had to buy a new stove!

I once forgot I was even cooking and left the stove unintended only to notice it when the house was filled with smoke.

I was in charge of making peanut butter rolls and chocolate peppermint candy for a very large party. I had no recipe for the mint candy. I always made it by tasting it. this was such a large amount of candy so I kept adding more and more peppermint extract. I few days later I was told to only bring peanut butter rolls the next time. Although all of the chocolate peppermint candy was delicious while eating it, afterwards people got sick. Peppermint in a large enough amount makes a great laxative!

When I was a kid I was helping my mother make dinner. We made a large pan of lasagna in a glass dish. She took it out of the oven and sat it on a burner while we prepared a vegetable. Suddenly there was an incredible "BANG" with glass and lasagna shooting across the kitchen. The glass dish had exploded when she turned the wrong burner on high.

I made my favorite Pecan Pie this year and left out the butter. Everyone was gracious and I'm glad I made a number of other desserts. Guess just too much going on.

I have made mistakes through the years. I remember mixing up Teaspoon Tablespoon when making a dish and using more salt that I should have.

I have made a few cooking mistakes but one that really stands out is from years ago when I was learning to bake cakes. I managed to get my measuring bowls and ingredients mixed up somehow, and instead of adding sugar to the batter, I added salt. Yikes!

When I was learning to cook as a child I didn't know there was a difference between baking soda and baking powder. I learned that lesson after making a batch of inedible cookies.

The biggest cooking mistake I've ever made was probably when I accidentally melted my microwave rice cooker in my microwave. The whole apartment filled with smoke and plastic fumes, and I had to buy a new microwave too. Thanks for offering this nice contest!

Biggest cooking mistake? Um, besides choosing the wrong recipe for the occasion, not having the main ingredient that was called for, and falling asleep while waiting for food to cook thus letting it burn, I can't think of any.

The biggest cooking disaster was not understanding what a clove of garlic was. Who ever said there is no such thing as too much garlic was sadly mistaken. )

I was trying to cut an onion in my hand instead of getting a cutting board. Not a good move. I ended up getting 7 stitches. That was a very bad cooking mistake.

These recipes are great! They are perfect for easy weeknight meals or make-ahead meals! They are economical too because I can vary the amount of ground beef I use or even use a mixture of beef and pork. I often buy ground beef in bulk or in a family pack so it goes a long way! These recipes are great for adding extra veggies into my family's meals too!

I just got a crock pot from my mother who passed away recently and I am looking for a good chili recipe and other things I can make in a 6 qt crock pot. Keeping in mind that I live alone and on Disability so money is tight. any help would be great.

Hi, Don! I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Slow cooker cooking can make your life really easy! You hardly even need a recipe for classic chili, and the ingredients are pretty affordable. Brown up some ground beef or turkey with onion, garlic, chili powder, and other seasonings you like. Put all that in the crockpot with a couple cans of beans and diced or stewed tomatoes. Cook it all day on low, and enjoy your chili for dinner! You can also sneak in some veggies like carrots, mushrooms, or green beans. Do you like your chili plain or over rice?

I love casseroles because they're so convenient but have a lot of good ingredients in them. This is a great collection!
