If you want to make dinner tonight, but don't know what to make with ground beef, then this blog post is just for you! Here are 31 ground beef recipes that will help you create a delicious and satisfying meal for any night of the week. Whether you want something simple like hamburgers or a big batch of lasagna, there is certainly an idea for every taste preference so that everyone at your table can enjoy it.
How to Choose the Right Type of Ground Beef
There are a few things you should consider when choosing which type of ground beef is best for your dish, such as fat content and cut preference (chopped or ground). Knowing these different factors will help ensure you have a flavorful meal everyone enjoys!
In my experience, ground chuck is great in almost any ground beef recipe because of its 20% fat content. It helps to keep the meat juicy and flavorful. However, if you prefer leaner meat, ground round or ground sirloin may be the best meat for you. When in doubt, choose what is recommended in the recipe.
