Used almost interchangeably, just like other cuts of beef or venison. If you don't want the wild taste of venison, use in tomato-y recipes, like lasagne or chili, or add a tablespoon or two of vinegar to cooking venison to remove the gamey taste.
I loved it when Mom used to make this for us! I have no idea if she originally made it for Dad, who had been in the army, or if she just liked it because it tasted good and was a budget stretcher. A traditional favorite, good ol' SOS. Note: the title of this recipe specifies that it is made ground beef, rather than chipped beef; "authentic" SOS is generally made with chipped beef, however many folks also refer to the ground beef version by the same name.
Authentic enchilada recipe from San Antonio. The Enchilada Gravy recipe will make 3 quarts so use as much as you like then refrigerate or freeze the rest. Cook time includes time to make Enchilada Gravy and Chili con Carne. Prep time is the time to make the Enchiladas. Enchiladas can be frozen fully assembled then thawed and heated in the oven. This recipe looks complicated but it is so easy, just throw everything into two pots and simmer while rolling up the tortillas! Substitute store-bought enchilada sauce for the Tex-Mex lovers, the enchilada gravy is some heavy stuff!
This is a very old recipe. I remember when I was first out on my own about 27 years ago, I made this dish. It is still just as good today. I had lost my original recipe which had come from a newspaper clipping, but just recently found it online at cheftochef.net. They received it from "Reminisce" Magazine posted by Debbie Carlson - Cooking Echo==Cortesy of Dale & Gail Shipp, Columbia MD.
A great way to use a pound of ground beef and make a dinner that all will love. It's so easy too! If you cannot find Mexicorn by Green Giant, you can use a regular can of corn or frozen corn. To control the heat of the dish, you can choose mild, medium or hot salsa!
This is one of my favourite things to make when I suddenly have to feed more people than I'd anticipated. (or any other time!) Due to the nature of the recipe, you can use more or less potatoes or vegetables, depending on what you have on hand -- or how far you need this one-dish meal to stretch!! Freezes well. (prep time doesn't include making mashed potatoes.)
My husband and father-in-law love this! It's a bit time-consuming, but worth the spectacular results. Truly a handsome dish! From one of those Pillsbury mini-magazine things you buy at the supermarket. Please note that you can use leftover mashed potatoes as well, or make homemade if you really hate instant!
Without meaning to brag, this is the best lasagne recipe I've ever tasted. It's perfect if you're trying to figure out what to do with ground venison because the tomato sauce does an incredible job of removing/masking the wild taste, but of course you can use ground beef as well. Even "Oh, I don't eat deer meat" people will love this -- just don't tell them until afterwards! My recipe book says the fennel is optional, but that's your KILLER SECRET INGREDIENT! It's not optional in my opinion!! You could also add a package of frozen spinach (thawed and drained) as well.
My own recipe evolved when making green rice. For oven casserole or crockpot, a great take along.You can have this meatless or use any ground meat.Just add more cheese and crushed crackers for meatless.
This is a recipe that my Father-in-Law adapted to meet the needs of my cheese loving lactose intolerant Hubby. When we had it at his parent's I thought it was made with real cheese! That is how good it is! I just winged the recipe to recreate it and it is delicious! I still can't believe that it isn't real cheese!
I love a good meatloaf. What Redneck doesn't? The key to a good meatloaf, though is to get the right seasonings, the quality of the meat, and the right binding. Some put vegetables like carrots or other stuff in their meatloaf to trick their kids into eating healthier. A Redneck kid can sniff a veggie out from forty paces and will refuse to eat it. This does not apply to the mixed peas and mashed potatoes thing. This is a favorite recipe of mine. Haven't got a clue where it came from, nor does it matter. It satisfies this Redneck's palate. Give it a try.
The yogurt is the secret ingredient in this meatloaf! You can use a mixture of ground beef, veal and pork if desired. To save time you can saute the mushroom/onion mixture a day in advance and refrigerate. Also chili sauce or ketchup can be spread on top of the meatloaf before baking. For Italian-style breadcrumbs see recipe#203857, if you are using this recipe for breadcrumbs reduce the Parmesan cheese to 1/4 cup and omit the thyme.
A twist on the usual chicken version. These freeze well without the gravy. A twist on the usual chicken version.**edited on October 24 to add instructions for Once a Month Cooking(see step 11) I usually make these during a cooking blitz and freeze them without the gravy until I need them**
