Tips From Easy Recipes:
On How To Cook Ground Beef

  • Always use premium grade meat. It is a waste of time and money to purchase the cheap grade as it is mostly fat and you have to add in the process of de-fating and then disposing of the liquidified fat. Urgh!

  • Brown the minced meat in a hot pan before adding ingredients, although it is ok to include in this step garlic or onions.

  • Meals can be frozen and are delicious later too. I do this frequently with lasagna, meat loaf and chilis.

  • If you want a fancy recipe, try out Ground Beef Wellington, which is wrapped in delicate puff pastry.

20 Minute Ground Beef Recipe

This recipe makes 4 to 6 serves.

You'll require:

  • 1 pound/ 500 gm ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 can tomatoes
  • 1 ts garlic granules
  • 2 heaped ts paprika
  • 2 ts sugar
  • 2 c frozen peas
  • In a roomy large non-stick pot, soften onions

  • Add meat to brown. Keep heat on high  - this takes about 7 - 8 minutes

  • Add the remainder of the ingredients except the peas

  • Turn the heat down for a gentle bubbling simmer. Cook with the lid in place.
    This process thickens the sauce and takes about 8 minutes

  • In the last 2 - 3 mins, stir through the frozen peas and replace lid. There's no need to cook the peas. It will warm through sufficiently.

Serve immediately with pasta or rice.

It is also delicious served with toast for the next day's lunch.
