I always have ground beef in my freezer just in case I don’t have anything in mind for dinner. With this list you can take that pound or two of ground beef and make a low carb casserole or maybe a keto burger. But did you know you can make meat bagels and meat crackers too? Scroll to the bottom to see how.
WHAT KIND OF GROUND BEEF TO USE
When I shop at Giant Eagle, I always check to see if they have Certified Angus Beef® ground beef on sale. I feel that this is the best quality of beef and Giant Eagle has a large selection to choose from.
I usually buy the 85% ground beef because I want some fat for flavor but not too much excess grease. If you have a preference for a fattier meat, just drain some of the grease out and if you want to use a leaner beef, you may need to add a bit more oil to some of these recipes.
