Perhaps it can be said that ground beef is one ingredient that is a must have in our refrigerators for its versatility. For this reason I’d like to share my top 5 easiest ground beef meal ideas that can be made in under 10 mins. These ideas can be used for those quick and easy weekday dinners. Ground beef is high in protein, and available in different fat percentages like (80/20 and 90/10) making it an ideal source of protein and low fats for those looking to have a healthy meal.
We all have been in situations when we wanted to cook a healthy meal but end up getting food delivery owing to our busy lives and not to forget the ‘perks’ of adulting. Eating out on regular basis is not only unhealthy, but affects our financial goals as well. To help counter that, here are 5 of the easiest ever ground beef healthy meal ideas that you can make under 10 mins, like literally!
1. Ground Beef Bowl | Prep Time: 2 mins | Cook Time: 8 min
Bowls are one of the most easy and fast meal ideas ever. You can mix and match any ingredient(s) of choice when it comes to a bowl. I personally like to have rice and some stir fried broccoli but you can skip the rice and replace it with lettuce cups if you want a low carb meal.
2. Thai Basil Beef | Prep Time: 0 mins | Cook Time: 8 mins
The sauce for this recipe is so versatile that you can literally add it to anything from chicken to fish or even paneer/tofu. This is also the easiest and yummiest for me personally.
3. Pakistani Beef Keema | Prep Time: 8 mins | Cook Time 10 mins
This is a Pakistani dish I personally really like. It is packed with unique flavors from South-East Asia and is one easy meal you can prepare under 10 mins on a weekday. Let a vegetable chopper chop the onions and dice the tomatoes which will make the prep way easier and also saves time.
4. Taco Seasoned Ground Beef | Prep Time: 0 mins | Cook Time: 10 mins
No prep is needed for this recipe which is not only tasty but also very healthy and has only 3 ingredients; salsa, taco seasoning mix (homemade), and ground beef. This is so fast and quick, it is perfect as a weekday dinner.
5. Korean Ground Beef | Prep Time: 0 mins | Cook Time: 8 mins
This is another ground beef healthy meal idea which can be cooked in under 10 mins and doesn’t need any prep. It is a perfect family meal packed with nutrients yet tasty. Pair it with white/brown rice.
