Final Beef Recipes

If you're looking for a new way to use ground beef, look no further! Three of the last four 'May is Beef Month' entries I received are tried and true, family favorite ground beef recipes. The contest is now closed, which means it's time for me to enlist help and draw for a winner . . . which will be announced by the end of the week!

In the meantime, enjoy these great beef recipes:

Dawn entered Green Onion Casserole

1 lb. ground beef, browned
Add: 1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 clove garlic
16 oz. tomato sauce
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
oregano and parsley, to taste
Simmer 15 minutes

Mix together: 1 cup sour cream
3 oz. cream cheese
6 green onions, chopped

Cook 8 oz. noodles as directed on package.

In a baking dish, layer - noodles, meat, sour cream/cheese,
& repeat. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

. . . and Italian Beef

5 lb. boneless chuck roast
2 tbsp. basil
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 bay leaf
1 1/2 tbsp. oregano
2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 1/2 tbsp. salt
5-6 cloves garlic
1 1/2 cups water

Place roast in a heavy pan. Add spices and water. Cook on low for 3 hours (or until done). Alternatively, can be prepared in Crock Pot on low for approximately 8 hours.

7-Layer Casserole comes from the recipe files of Lee Ann

1 cup uncooked rice
1 16 oz can whole kernel corn, undrained
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp seasoned pepper
1 beef bouillon cube
3/4 cup boiling water
1 15 oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper, optional
1 lb lean ground beef
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tbls bacon bits

In 2 quart casserole, layer in the following order:

Rice mixed well with corn, half the salt and pepper, bouillon cube and boiling water
Half of tomato sauce that has been mixed with Worcestershire sauce and Italian seasoning
Chopped onion and green pepper
Uncooked ground beef and remaining salt and pepper
Remaining tomato sauce mixture

Cover and bake at 375 for 45 minutes

And last but not least, Angie's Swedish Meatballs

2 lbs hamburger
2/3 cups rice
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup milk

Mix all together and shape into balls (I usually make them about the size of a golf ball or a little bigger -- using a scoop like from Pampered Chef)

Sauce

1 t. salt
1 t. chili powder
1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c vinegar
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 cup catsup
1 cup water

Bring sauce to boil, pour into baking dish (9x13). Add meatballs. Cover. Bake for 2 hours at 350 degrees

Mmm. All these recipes sound great! Beef gets a bad rap, but it's a great source or protein and iron. I'll have to use some of these to get my fill :)
