1LB Ground Meat = 4 Meals with 4 servings per meal!!!

Use 1lb ground meat and lots of veggies to make 4 different meals! Add bulk with lots of different veggies (shredded or chopped). You get up to 4 servings per meal (approx. 12-16 servings). I stretch meat and save money too. I do the same with boneless chicken breast and boneless pork. Some weeks I get 12-14 individual meals that I would add different side dishes, salads or more veggies too! All my lunch & dinner entrées for the week done!!

Tasty way to Cut Calories and Fat

Switching this simple meat will help you lose weight and cut out fat..I have taken all recipes that call for ground beef and substituted it for ground chicken, or turkey, and some times ground pork, you really can't taste the difference. emoticon

Ground Turkey

I swap out GROUND TURKEY for all my ground beef needs. With the right seasonings know one even notices. When browning it will stick because of less far. What I do is use a non stick skillet and a little water.

Healthier ground beef

This tip is only for when you need crumbled hamburger for say tacos or spaghetti sauce. I put my hamburger in a pot of water and boil it until it's done. Drain the water and bye-bye grease. Leave the meat in 1 or 2 chunks then after draining use a spatula to break up into crumbles/season & use!

Pre-cooking ground beef

In addition to batch cooking on the weekend, I brown my ground beef (all of it) as soon as I get home from the grocery store. We don't eat many hamburgers. It saves time because it cooks more quickly because it's not frozen and is ready when I need it later that week: shepherd's pie, chilli, etc.
