I love using my crockpot and slow cooking many meals, but I am sure most can be done in the oven as well.
Au gratin potatoes with browned ground beef is a delicious meal, toss in some onions, and peas for a full meal.
Salisbury steaks slow cooked in a beef gravy goes great with mashed taters and vege. I often just mix a packet of onion mix into the beef then form my
patties. Very flavorful and quick too.
Chili con carne is a given but better for cooler weather.
Mexican lasagna. Just fix up the ground beef as you would for tacos. Grease and dust a casserole dish with oil then flour. Line bottom with flour
tortillas, add layer of meat, sprinkle with cheese, repeat another layer, finally cover with flour tortillas, salsa sauce, and cheese.
Beef stroganoff is also nice hearty meal. Though pasta meal, nice change up from so many tomato sauce recipes.
Beef hash in the skillet is delicious too. Ground beef, onions, potatoes...perfect for brunch or dinner.
Obviously, burritos. Get creative with the flavour fillings.
Most of these are pretty simple to prepare and cook. I actually discovered and tried these recipes after looking online seeking how to use ground beef
I am not one to follow a recipe completely though. I always tweak to taste or make substitutions. Though a few changes to one recipe provides multiple
diverse tasting meals.
Edit add: just remembered making beef jerky in the dehydrator! Those are tasty little snacks and they usually don't last long, since everyone grabs a
bag to munch on as a snack.
