Apr 20th 2016

Great non-meatloaf ground beef recipes

Where’s the beef? Lots of places. Delicious places.

When you’re really craving a meal that’s juicy and meaty, there’s nothing better than ground beef. But making the same old meatloaf and hamburgers can get pretty old. Here are some alternative, delicious recipes we’ve found that will transport you to ground beef heaven in no time flat:

1. Cheesy beef goulash

 What we love about goulash: it’s salty, meaty, and full of flavor. And thanks to the Lil Luna blog’s dedication to bringing us “all things good,” we were able to experience some of the most flavorful cheesy beefy goulash on the planet.

 It’s just like the goulash you already know and love — noodles, beef, and tomato sauce — but with the glorious addition of cheddar cheese. We’re big cheese fans around here, so you can never go wrong with adding it to a perfectly savory dish! It’s the perfect combo of delicious, filling, and extra easy!

2. Beef enchiladas with homemade enchilada sauce

 Feeling like you need an extra oomph in the flavor department? It’s time to get spicy and saucy with a little bit of Latin flair! The Chunky Chef shares one of her favorite cuisines with us in her recipe for beef enchiladas with homemade enchilada sauce. (FYI, the sauce recipe is courtesy of Gimme Some Oven). So kick it up a notch in the kitchen with this slightly more challenging, high-protein recipe that’s full of flavor and culture.

3. Cheap Korean beef with brown rice

 Anything celebrating affordability is a win in our book. But the best thing about this recipe is that, while it is easy on the wallet, it tastes like it came from an expensive Korean restaurant. Thanks to Berry Morins Bits and Tips, we can all enjoy the spicy and savory flavors of Korean beef in the comfort of our own home. Using just a few bold ingredients, you’ll be inspired and amazed at just how easy and fast this meal can be prepared for you and your family. Our pro tip: add a touch of raw honey or pure maple syrup as a natural sweetener to add depth to the flavor of this dish.

4. Hawaiian meatballs and rice

 If you’re really feeling adventurous, why not try cuisine from an exotic locale? Sure, Hawaii is technically part of the States, but it’s distance from the coast means mainlanders don’t often find dishes influenced by its culture.

 Ready Set Eat has developed a simple and sweet recipe that’s multifaceted: it’s perfect for parties, an amazing appetizer, or it can be an excellent entrée. The subtle pineapple and BBQ notes of these meatballs hint at popular flavors from the tropical Hawaiian islands.
