Price overload…cannot compute!
Lets face it ground beef is not getting any cheaper. Matter of fact it just went up in price again here. I hope your prices are lower than mine are! I don’t know about you but I was having a hard time affording it before it increased so much! I have a really easy quick step to add while cooking your ground beef. It is so simple. This will knock your socks off!
Save money, using this simple recipe to stretch out your beef!
It is pretty simple really. You are one ingredient away from stretching your dollar! No lie. See for yourself! Also, after the recipe I listed all of the other things that I saw other people adding to ground meat to stretch it out, just in case this recipe does not work for you. It will most definitely not work for every single recipe but thankfully there are many other ideas to use! Good luck! Let me know how it turns out for you!
Cook/Prepare/Care for food properly! Please see disclaimer.
Brown your ground beef in a large skillet.
Add oats to the ground beef.
Finished product, comes out like this.
My family doesn’t even notice when I add oats! Here is the recipe in short.
Stretching ground beef:
- 1 lb. Ground Beef
- 3/4 cup Oats
- Brown ground beef.
- Add oats.
- Mix together.
- Bulgar wheat cooked in water
- Grated potatoes
- Vegetable- pureed
- Bread crumbs
- Oats and eggs
You could try any of these other options. I think that the taste will highly depend on whatever you pair with the ground beef. You may have to try different things to get the right taste and texture if necessary. I would love to try quinoa. I have some in the pantry. That I never use. I have not found any recipes that I love using it yet. Maybe adding it into the beef would help me out with that. I have heard it is very healthy for you. If I do try it I will update this post with my review!
Thanks for stopping by! Do you have something you like to add to your ground beef or maybe even turkey or venison to stretch it out, that I did not list here? I would love to hear about it.
