8 Recipes for Ground Beef


8 Recipes for Ground Beef

If you took advantage of the super hot sale price of $1.99/lb. on 80% lean ground beef at Safeway this week, you may be looking for recipes to make with all that meat!   See below for 8 recipes to make with ground beef.  While tacos are easy, as is spaghetti, mix up your dinner routine and try something new – like muffin tin meatloaf, or a skillet Shepard’s pie, or a one-pot lasagna soup, or 30 minute Italian meatball soup.  You can also stick with a traditional burger.  I portioned my meat out and plan to freeze most of it to use for burgers this spring, and will also use to make the Italian soup as that’s one of my kids favorite meals!  Be sure to check out additional recipes using ingredients on sale at Safeway in our From the Kitchen page here.

Muffin Tin Meatloaf

Rather than make an entire loaf of meatloaf, mix it up with these fun mini meatloaf muffins that you can then top with cheddar cheese.  Be sure to properly spray the muffing tin with cooking spray to make clean up easier!


Skillet Shepard’s Pie

From Jo Cookshis skillet shepherd’s pie is loaded with flavorful beef and veggies then topped with fluffy and creamy mashed potatoes, then baked to perfection!


Easy One Pot Lasagna Soup

From Carlsbad Cravings This One Pot Lasagna Soup recipe can’t get any easier or more delicious!  It boasts layers of cheesy noodles smothered in rich marinara infused with garlic, onion and Italian spices all smothered Parmesan, mozzarella and ricotta  – drool – and all you have to do is brown your beef, dump in the ingredients and simmer away!


30 Minute Italian Beef Soup

From Safeway, a savory Italian beef soup with kale, tomatoes, carrots, white beans and ground beef chunks.

Killer Beef Chili Recipe

Chili is the ultimate comfort food for a cool night.  Make a large pot of this Killer Beef Chili as you are filling out your NCAA college basketball bracket or watching a game this week.   This recipe uses a secret shortcut ingredient in the form of pico de gallo that you can pick up already assembled from your local Safeway produce department.


We would be remiss if we didn’t share a few burger recipes, which are mostly what I make when I have 80% lean ground beef.  The extra fat makes for delicious juicy burgers.  Check out three burger recipes you can make with ground beef below.

grilled Greek pita burger

Grilled Greek Pita Burger

Tangy Mustard Burger

Mix up your traditional burger recipe with a tangy mustard burger that incorporates ground beef with onion powder, mustard, pickles and dried rosemary inside the burger, rather than as a topping.

Serve these Guacamole Burgers with Roasted Corn Salsa over a romaine lettuce leaf to skip the carbs and add even more flavor than the traditional condiments offer.
