I’m just gonna say it… ground beef is under-appreciated.

Yes, we all love a juicy steak and chicken is like health food’s poster child, but ground beef is delicious and deserves its moment in the spotlight!! We love ground beef because you can do so much with it. Here’s some of our favorite ground beef dishes…

  • Taco Style: with the right seasonings, ground beef turns into taco meat and goes perfectly inside lettuce wraps, over rice, or on a taco salad!

  • Burgers: this is my personal favorite. Mix your burger meat with salt, pepper, and a dash of onion powder, form into patties, and grill to perfection! For the Be Better Challenge, skip the processed bun and have your burger naked topped with all the goodies like peppers & onions, mushrooms, spinach & a fried egg, caramelized balsamic onions… you get the idea. Serve with a side of sweet potato fries!

  • Stuff Something: stuffed peppers come to mind here, but you can stuff lots of veggies with ground beef. You could try zucchini boats, acorn squash, cabbage, and even mushrooms! Pinterest is a treasure trove of recipes like this.

  • Old Faithful: if you’re low on time or want something simple, sautéed ground beef & onions is a perfect go to! Cook small chopped onions in some olive oil, throw in your ground beef, season with salt, pepper, and a dash of onion & garlic powder, & break that ish up so it’s all incorporated in your pan. Cook until your ground beef gets some yummy crispy golden bits. Ground beef like this is perfect with rice, sweet potatoes, on top of salads, or just as a midday snack!

Hello versatility! We recommend getting leaner ground beef (90/10 is good because it’s lean, but not too lean… read: healthy, but not flavorless). Grass fed is king when it comes to the nutrient quality of our beef, but we won’t get too picky with you guys right off the bat ;P
