Whenever I buy large quantities of ground beef, one of two things happens. One, I stashed the individual packages that I won’t be using that week into the freezer. Two, I brown it all at once and turn it into spaghetti sauce and/or taco meat…then once prepared, I use and/or freeze in meal size portions. Three, I brown some, form some into meatballs or mini meatloaves.
I know I said two, but I guess it’s really three!
The last of my $.19 tomato paste ($1/2 coupon available on Coupons.com). And 2 Tbsp of my homemade taco seasoning!
And for spaghetti sauce, I like to make my own sauce with Italian seasonings, some garlic and onions with crushed tomatoes. And I never forget a pinchful of sugar when making my own sauce!
What do you do with ground beef when you buy a bunch on sale?! What’s your favorite way to use it up?!
