What can I make with a pound of ground beef?

We are out of potatoes and taco shells. And my sons in no mood for hamburger helper or noodles. Oh and he hates soup. Anyone has any simple recepies that dont take many things to make? I am in no mood to go to the store.

Answer #1

Spaghetti and meatballs, Tatertot Casseroll, Meatballs and mashed potatoes with cravy, Frito chilli pie or chillli and cornbread, Sloppy joes.

Answer #2

Ground beef and rice? I am aware this takes indian spices, but if you have them it only takes 15 minutes.

Heat some oil. Fry 1tsp garlic and 1 tsp ginger for a few seconds. Put in a half cup of tomatoes (crushed, chopped, whatever). Salt to taste. If you’ve got individual spices, 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp coriander, 1/2 tsp cumin powder, and a pinch of chili powder or 1.5 tsp curry powder works too. Cook that for a bit (add a little water if it starts to burn). Put in ground beef. Cook till ready.

Boil some rice. You have a meal

If you’ve got mashed potatoes lying around you can make shepherd’s pie.

Once the meat is basically cooked, you can add mushrooms, carrots, peas.

Layer the bottom of an oven safe dish with the meat. Put the mashed potatoes on top. Cover with a layer of cheese. Put in over and bake till cheese is melted.

Answer #3

I guess you didn’t read the part that said he doesn’t want noodles and I don’t have any potatos. So anything that asks for potato products in the recipe won’t work. He also does eat chili so that will not work either. I don’t use canned items and I only cook from scratch. I guess I should have mentioned that as well.

Answer #4

he said he would try ground beef and rice. Thanks!

Answer #5

Hamburger Helper!! One pound, one pan, one tasty meal!!! lol : )

Answer #6

once again as I stated twice, he doesn’t want noodles.

Answer #7

Answer #8

Answer #9

-Ground beef patties in gravy, with corn, green beans, fried green tomato’s, green onions, macaroni & cheese, biscuits/pan bread, etc… Whatever sides you like. (My mom makes this all the time, it’s good to me.)

-Brown the hamburger with onions and mushrooms, and add to cooked wild rice and cream/milk blend. And/or use low salt creams soups, such as cream of mushroom or broccoli, or asparagus.

-Cheeseburger pie! Delicious!…normally you would make it with Bisquick mix, but you may not have that…and you said you are in no mood to go to the store. So, here is a homemade cheeseburger pie recipe.

Homemade Bisquick Mix: 5 c. flour 2 T. baking powder 2 t. salt 1/4 c. sugar 1/2 c. dry milk powder 3/4 t. baking soda 1/2 c. butter or margarine

Cheeseburger Pie: 1/2 - 1 lb. ground beef 1 onion, diced 1 t. salt 1/2 t. garlic powder 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese 1 c. homemade bisquick mix 2 c. water 4 eggs

  1. Brown ground beef with onion, salt and garlic powder. Place in a greased 9 x 13 casserole pan.
  2. Cover with cheese. (If you are making this ahead of time, let the beef cool first.)
  3. Whisk together mix, water and eggs. Pour over beef and cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Answer #10

that sounds good. I may try that some time.

Answer #11

It is good. :) Thanks. :D

Answer #12

I only cook meals from scratch. I don’t buy boxed meals or things like that. But it’s a good suggestion.
