Hearty Meat Sauce

This will become your new, go-to meat sauce recipe. Just season beef with dried herbs, and simmer it low and slow with tomatoes until the flavors meld to perfection. Easy and delicious!

Beef Stroganoff Burgers

These shroom burgers are both double-deckers and double mushroom &mdash they have a whole roasted portabello mushroom (in addition to a burger patty) and a creamy mushroom stroganoff sauce.

Moroccan Meatball Soup

You only need a handful of ingredients to make this hearty and delicious meatball soup, but the harissa and cumin are a must. They work together to give the soup its incredible flavor and aroma.

Beef Picadillo Enchiladas

These enchiladas &mdash loaded with ground beef, tomatoes, Cheddar, olives and raisins &mdash get a kick from Chinese five-spice powder.

Add a little beef and a little beer and a little chipotle, and you've got chili in no time.

Mushroom and Provolone Meatloaf

Finely chopped mushrooms and shredded provolone add moisture and flavor to this glazed meatloaf. The recipe calls for a mix of ground meat but feel free to use all beef if that's what you have on hand.

Big-Batch Healthy Beef, Mushroom and Spinach Calzones

Set aside some extra time one weekend to make a dozen of these calzones. Then pack your freezer full of them and know you've got healthy lunches or dinners for those hectic days covered.
