Are you ready to take the stress out of dinner time and easily answer the question “What’s for Supper”? Ground beef is extremely versatile and easy to cook. The majority of ground meat recipes start with instructions to brown the meat usually with onion and garlic. It is not much more work to brown more meat than required for your meal and then repackage into smaller amounts to use at a later meal.
Planning ahead and stocking your freezer with a big batch of ground beef will change your life and save your sanity during the week.
Check out these recipes for a complete Monday to Friday meal plan.
