Easy and Delicious Ground Beef recipes are featured as part of our Weekly Meal Plan with printable menus available for you to customize for your family’s dinner. Use these recipes to inspire your meal planning this week.
If you need easy recipes to prepare for dinner, you’re going to really like this week’s meal plan. Ground beef recipes are easy to prepare and almost everyone in the family loves them.
And trust me, you can do so much more with ground beef than just preparing tacos for dinner. Although tacos are a great idea for dinner!
Delicious Ground Beef Recipes
If your family is like mine, they don’t like having the same recipe over and over again. I think you’re going to enjoy trying these new recipes this week.
Get the kids involved with the planning also! Have them pick a meal one night a week. And make sure they know they need to pick a healthy meal that includes vegetables. Make it fun for them!
What to Add to Ground Beef for Flavor
One complaint about ground beef is lacking in flavor for some recipes. That can be easily solved by making sure you season the beef as you cook the recipe…not just at the beginning but also season at the end of the cooking process.
As the meat browns and cooks the seasoning can evaporate along with the steam the meat releases, so taste and season being careful not to taste any uncooked beef!
How to Brown Ground Beef
I wrote a post a few years ago on ground beef with tips on freezing, defrosting and browning ground beef. There’s even a tip on how to quickly defrost ground beef when you forget to take it out of the freezer and need it for dinner.
Meal Planning Categories
This is just an example of how I like to meal plan. You could also incorporate a “leftover meal” or even “clean out the refrigerator” night. This is something we do at least once a week or every 10 days.
Tip: Assign each day of the week a different category and then plan a meal according to that category.
- Monday – Meatless, Vegetarian or even Leftovers from the weekend.
- Tuesday – Taco Tuesday or Mexican Recipe
- Wednesday – Chicken, Beef or Fish
- Thursday – Pasta or Italian Night
- Friday – Sandwiches and Soup
- Saturday – Pizza or Eat Out, Order In
- Sunday – Comfort Food Meal
- Monday – Italian Ground Beef with Biscuits – made with leftover ground beef from Taste and Tell Blog.
- Tuesday – Tamale Pie from 2 Teaspoons
- Wednesday – Creamy Beef Noodle Bake from Together As Family
- Thursday – Pasta Fagioli
- Friday – Lasagna Soup from CarlsBad Cravings
- Saturday – French Bread Pizza made with Homemade Beef Sauce. Serve this pizza with my Homemade Pizza Dipping Sauces.
- Sunday – Hamburgers with Mushroom Gravy – one of our favorites!
Now, pick a side dish to serve with the recipes listed above. Side dishes should include potatoes or rice along with one or two veggies. A tossed salad with homemade ranch salad dressing is always nice too.
