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.

This Clean eating ground beef curry is one of those throw together meals that’s always pretty welcome! You get to know the recipe so well, it gets passed down (like this has) and before you know it you’re throwing the ingredients together without thinking about it.
Deliciously simple, this not too hot and spicy will become a menu staple.

The cheats version, these meatballs go straight into the oven, no one’s ever noticed the difference and they’re eaten, loved and asked for again. As an easy mid week dinner, these baked meatballs in tomato sauce won’t let you down.

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.
