Warm Weather Ground Beef Recipes
I'm not a huge ground beef fan, but I'm found myself with a ton after a cook out. It's suuuuper hot here, and other than burgers (which, after the cookout, I am a little sick of), almost all of the ground beef recipes that I know are really cold weather dishes, like spagetti and meat sauce or hamburger "stroganoff."
I made a really satisfying asian noodles bowl with some of the beef and some vegetables and egg and chili, but I can't think of anything else. Let me know if you have ideas.
Saute ground beef with onion and garlic, S&P. Freeze this in useable amounts as the starting point for future pasta sauce, chili, tacos, stir-fries, soup, etc. It's simple but tasty as is, over noodles or mashed potato.
One of my favorite summer uses for ground beef is to simply brown it with some spices and onion and serve it atop rotini dressed with a sauce of yogurt mixed with mashed garlic, salt and chopped dill. Everything is gilded with brown butter and Aleppo pepper as well as sumac to taste. It takes maybe 15 minutes to make.
Also in my rotation are taco salad, beef larb, picadillo and qeema.
Picadillo- this is how I make it:
Saute 1 lb. of ground beef or ground bison, and some onions and garlic
Add these ingredients and cover and simmer for 20 or more minutes:
diced bell pepper
sliced green olives (spanish)
8 oz tomato sauce
little bit of water
one diced potato (optional)
dash of olive oil
serve with rice
