As I’m bee-bopping around on this book tour of mine, I thought I’d bring you a few compilation posts from time to time. Today’s post is all about that good old family favorite: Ground Beef. Below you’ll find some of my personal favorite ground beef recipes and a list of just about every ground beef recipe on Southern Plate (I may have left one or two out but I think I got ’em all in there).

I hope you enjoy these recipes and keep your eyes open for my next post, which will be sweet as honey! ~winks and grins~

Ground Beef Stew (with a secret!)

Hearty, filling, easy, economical, and bursting with flavor!

Deep Dish Pizza

Made this the night I came home from the first week of touring. It hit the spot!

Hobo Packets

Ever feel like your family expects you to be a short order cook in the kitchen? You’ll love this recipe, then! Hobo packets are a snap to put together and easily customizable to suit everyone!

Pizza Rolls

This was a favorite at our house when we were teens and is a favorite at my house any day!

Taco Soup – World’s Easiest Supper

Gotta love a recipe where you throw everything in a pot and come back to supper fifteen minutes later!

**THIS POST is how I process large quantities of ground beef. The post is pretty old but it still shows it just as well. I prefer to buy large quantities of ground beef and cook it all at once. I then freeze it to have cooked ground beef on hand anytime I need to whip up a quick meal. This is my #1 timesaver!

  1. Hey Christy have you made Ratatouille? I’m kind of looking for a recipe on that I kind of want to try it.

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cooked your taco soup. I use petite diced tomatoes instead of Rot-ell though. Rot-ell was to spicy for me. lol.

  2. My daughter, Ashleigh and I were just talking about deep dish pizza yesterday and this morning (gentle, musical hallelujah’s) I see your recipe. Well, can’t you guess what’s for dinner tonite!! Love your recipes, love your great sense of humor and envy your energy with your family, blog and book tour. Blessings to you honey.

  3. Also if your having any health issues and doctor has limited beef intake you can substitute ground turkey in it’s place. Thanks Christy for all the recipes, you are a rare gem!!

    1. That’s a great tip! I use ground turkey and ground beef mixed together. I go half and half as this saves money for those that are on a tight budget.

  4. your recipes are GREAT. But could someone help me out…I cant find the “PRINT” button. Guess Im getting OLD.

    1. Let me know which recipe you can’t find it on and I’ll go check it. We just rolled that out recently and there are about 400 recipes on here so we might have missed one or two(we had to go into each recipe to do it).

  5. Love Love Love all of the recipes Christy! I have to admit, your my favorite now! Congratulations on all of your recent cookbook signings. Your going to make it big!

  6. I’ve been wondering where Flat Christy has been lately! We would love to have her come to visit! We love your deep dish pizza! All the other recipes sound great, too!
