Clean ground beef recipes
I am a cheapskate when it comes to food shopping.
I don’t like going to the supermarket more than once a week because then I blow my budget. I know my faults. I MUST resist that second trip at all costs! But this has left me with that age old, super frustrating “Whats for Dinner” Dilemma.
Staring blankly into the freezer. I see three things:
1. Packs of Minced Beef (4 of them.)
2. Frozen Vegetables.
3. Ice Blocks.The Water type.
Yip. It’s kind of sad that I’ve let it get to this point. But am I worried? No. No I’m not. Because I have this sneaky little list of minced beef recipes up my sleeve that I know will impress even my family of apprentice food critics.
What meals can you make with mince?
Mince is such a versatile meat to cook with, and lends itself to literally thousands of recipes. Because it’s soft and in tiny pieces, it’s perfect for younger kids, so it’s really easy to make a meal the whole family can eat together, from tiny toddlers and up.

15 Minced Beef Recipes that will Blow your Mind!
Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry
This was a classic when I was growing up. We would add a little curry powder to the mince (a teaspoon should do it) to give a little Indian flavour twist to the meal. But with or without it, it is delicious and great as leftovers in school lunch boxes the next day too.
Sweet and Spicy Korean Meatballs
You had me at “Sweet and Spicy”. I have an undeniable sweet tooth. So this gets a double thumbs up from me. For another meatball variation, try my Sticky Teriyaki Meatballs.
This is my husbands choice. But then what’s not to love about thick, savory gravy on top of creamy mashed potato.
Crispy Southwest Wrap
I could eat this with a spoon right now. This is a clever way to use up taco mince too. Just add a couple cups of mixed veggies or crispy salad and wrap it up for next day dinner.
Tastes amazing and is on your dinner table in just 15 min from start to finish!
Enchilada Zucchini Boats
A simple, stuffed Zucchini recipe that will quickly become a family favorite!
Healthy Asian Lettuce Wraps
Perfect for a light Summer meal or if you are entertaining a big crowd. Looks amazing, tastes incredible and impresses every time!
Salisbury Steak Meatballs with Gravy and Mashed Potatoes
The mini Version of Salisbury steak. Really kid friendly and warms the tummy on cold Wintery nights!
Stuffed Taco Bake Potatoes
I always make at least a double batch of taco mince whenever I make tacos. It means I always have an easy meal available when needed. Top some baked potatoes with taco mince, cheese, sour cream and salsa for this brilliant 20 minute
Oven Baked Meatballs in Tomato Sauce
Still a Family Classic in our home. I make this once or twice a month and it’s always a crowd pleaser.
Cheesy Beef Quesadilla
Funny enough, cheesy beef quesadillas have become a feature around here. The two younger kids have just figured out how to make their own Quesadillas. So now any leftover mince becomes hot property for whoever gets their hands on it.
Loaded Sheet Pan Nachos
Need to feed a bunch of hungry kids fast? Loaded Sheet pan Nachos is your answer. One big tray of deliciousness that delivers!
Honey Barbecue Meat Loaf
Sticky, Sweet and a little bit smoky. Oh my Goodness!!! I’ve always thought meatloaf was a really clever way to class up ground beef. IT looks like a little roast. But it’s not. See what I mean? Clever. The recipe call for Barbecue sauce. You can either make your own or buy a ‘good enough’ version. I get mine from a local wholefoods supermarket. Yes it has added sugar, but it’s just one of those things that I just feel is not worth the effort making from scratch just to forgo a little sugar.
Beef Masaala and Scalloped Potato Casserole
A Spin on the Classic Cottage Pie. Crisp and Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes take this dish to a whole new level. Delicious! You can skip the wine, but I think it’s what gives this recipe the ‘Wow” factor.
Ground Beef Curry
You know you are on to a good thing when you eat it two nights in a row! This simple ground beef curry is even better the next day.
