Ground Beef - share with me your favorite recipes using it!

We buy our beef in bulk - and by bulk I mean, we buy a half of a cow directly from the farmer who raised it! It costs a lot up front but in the end we end up saving a TON!!!! I was just taking a roast out of the freezer to thaw for dinner tonight and I realized how much ground beef we have left. Compared to the other cuts of meat, we have A TON of ground beef!!!! So you can expect to start seeing a lot of recipes with ground beef on here. But I could use some help!!

PLEASE share with me your favorite recipes using ground beef! Thanks!!!!

Hi... thanks so much for visiting We Don't Have It All Together this morning! I am following you now. I am looking forward to reading the responses here - I always need new ideas for beef. I have been wanting to buy a 1/2 of a cow for a long time now... one of these days I guess. At least that way, I know I can trust the meat if I trust the farmer.

Have a great day!

Microwave Taco Burgers

These are so quick, easy and tasty!! One of my kids' favorites!

1 lb ground beef
1 1/4 package mild taco mix
2 Tbsp mild salsa
4 sandwich buns
4 tomato slices
1 cup chopped lettuce
1 cup sour cream (if desired)

In microwave bowl, combine ground beef, taco mix and salsa; mix well, shape into 4 patties. Place on plate, cover with wax paper. Microwave 5-7 minutes or until desired doneness, turning and rearranging patties after 3 minutes. Let stand 2-3 minutes. Place a patty on bottom half of each bun. Top each with a tomatoe slice, 1/4 cup of lettuce and sour cream. Cover each with top half of bun.

We have 6 kids so we definitely had to double our recipe :) I keep quick and easy recipes on my blog: Knead a Recipe?! Wasn't sure if you were a follower of it or not, check it out. You may like it :)

I'm going to be checking on your response - we eat a lot of hamburger but the norms (meatloaf, spaghetti, hamburgers) and I could use some fresh ideas!!

We do the same thing every year, buy a half cow and a pig. This year I think we only got a quarter cow, too much hamburger! We use it up in spaghetti sauce, chili, meat-loaf (my kids love it), burritos, hamburgers on the grill.
