    Default Hamburger (ground/minced beef) - favorite recipe ?

    As the subject line says and asks - what's "your" favorite recipe to
    use/cook ground beef (hamburger), a.k.a. minced beef? Typically, (I
    find) a simple hamburger is the fastest and easiest way, especially
    tasty when combined with a toasted (butter optional) sesame bun with
    favorite condiments, eh <G>! Then there's hamburger 'soup' served over
    mashed potatoes, but that's subject to many variables based on the
    diners' likes & dislikes. There are also pot pies and the like. And of
    course, red meat sauce (pasghetti!) for pasta and such. What other
    tasty options are there for ground/minced beef?

    Sky, who'd usually rather have a fillet/steak!

    P.S. Oh, I forgot about meatloaf (ugh!)

    Look for recipes called "beef runza" with lots of onion and cabbage.
    And pepper.

    I apologize. The runza recipes are all over the place. Typically
    it's 1 parts each browned and drained ground beef sautéed with a as
    much cabbage and onion (FGBP and a touch of sage). You can
    casserole it with a crumby dough on top, or make pastries.

    I'll leave you to your devices with just that. I know you
    can do it :-)

    I like *my* meatloaf. Can't say as much about most others I've tried. I
    also like Sloppy Joes, use ground beef in chili, chili-mac, browned and
    crumbled on pizza, the aforementioned redmeat sauce, hamburgers, of course.
    David likes "hamburger gravy" served over mashed potatoes, perhaps like
    your hamburger "soup". I can't stand the stuff myself. Then, of course,
    there are Italian and Swedish meatballs, and a quick meat filling for
    tacos. There must be dozens of other things might use ground beef in.

    I'm sure you'll get lots more suggestions. :-)

    Well.....for myself, meat loaf is a favorite dish, but the elderly
    relative likes the ground meats because their easy for her to eat and
    some of her favorites are stuffed cabbage, dolmas, moussaka, salisbury
    steak, tacos, burritos, ground beef lasagna, piroges, raviolis, pot
    stickers, bows, fried rice & etc.

    One of her favorite comfort foods is a simple gravy made with ground
    beef and served over a slice of bread.

    Im rather fond of a ground beef hash myself, lots of onions, potatoes &
    garlic with the ground beef.

    "Andy's Mac'n'Cheese Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Special"

    Brown 3/4 pound of ground beef to bits, drain and add to a pot full of a
    family size box o' blue (Original) m&c, add in one diced avocado and 3 or
    four good shakes of cayenne pepper. Mix well. Take out the dentures and
    enjoy!

    TIP: Before lunch and dinner, add a couple tablespoons of water to pot and
    reheat on low, stirring, to quickly steam it back to hot, gooey goodness.

    I've grown fond of a simple, slow-food hamburger that goes something
    like this: find a good roll, such as a zapaton or whole-wheat bun,
    or a sesame or onion roll; as high a quality fresh bun you can find.
    Slice the bun, and place it in a oven (we use a toaster oven) set
    for low heat -- 200 degrees.

    Fry up a 1/3 lb patty of grass-fed beef per serving. Season this
    with sea salt and fresh ground pepper, preferably yuppie pepper
    such as Tellicherry. It will only need 5 minutes on a moderately
    hot cast-iron pan to cook to medium rare. Assemble as follows:
    a little EVOO on each half-bun, the burger, and a mound of fresh
    arugula on top (I usually salt the arugula a bit too). No other
    condiments needed; the softness of the bun, succulence of the
    rare-ish meat, and olive oil give it everything it needs.

    Something about the rangey grass fed flavor combines with the
    arugula and soft bun / olive oil to make this nearly perfect,
    by my barometer.

    That said, the last time we did this, we substituted upland
    cress for arugula resulting in a wacky, extreme, sharp-ish flavor.
    I'm not sure we're gonna serve that version to guests.

    Meatballs (including kofta and Swedish meatballs), Cincinnati-style chili,
    shepherd's pie, pseudo gyu katsu, pastitsio, and picadillo (especially for
    empanadas or chiles rellenos) are some of my favorite ways to deal with
    ground beef.

    I'd want to add a little chèvre and maybe a slice of semi-dried tomato if
    tomatoes are in season.

    Make a ragu' with very few tomato, mix it with with an equal amount of
    ricotta and mix in some cheese. I usually use parmigiano reggiano since it's
    always present but one could use the cheese he prefers. With this mix I fill
    cannelloni and bake them with some bechamel and some ragu' over and between
    them.
    Ricotta helps to keep down the total amount of fat and calories, ragu' gives
    the taste and cheese gives that additional zing.

    BTW in my vision ragu' is brown, not red. Tomato sauce appears in very small
    doses there, and I usually don't put hot pepper in it.

    You know what he might also like? Hot dog gravy. It's a South St.
    Louis thing. You boil hot dogs, and you use the reduced (pink) water
    as the base. You add cornstarch or flour to thicken, and a little
    milk. It's also referred to as "weenie water gravy." South St.
    Louis is also the home of brain sandwiches, and fried bologna and
    process cheese on Wonder-type bread. I've never eaten the first two,
    but my mother made the fried baloney sandwiches when I was a little
    kid. I actually felt the need to shudder remembering them.

    Well, I would rather have a great steak, but meatloaf is comfort food
    and we have it a couple of times a year.

    My recipe is a combination of what I learned from my Grandmother and my
    ex MIL.

    Figure 2 to 3 pounds of ground beef (I use 80/20)
    Plain bread crumbs
    2 to 3 eggs
    a little milk
    chopped onion
    a can of diced tomatoes (drained)
    salt (I use Lawrey's), pepper, dried parsley

    Mix together everything except the bread crumbs... then add them a
    little at a time until the meat starts to bind. (about a cup +/-) Form
    into a loaf and put in a pan.

    Grandma usually dumped a can of beef gravy on the top... the MIL used
    ketchup. I like it either way.

    The best part for me is the cold meatloaf sandwiches you make the next day.
