This is a perfect way to cook during the week; low prep time and no mess to clean up. Serve on homemade tortillas and all your fixins.

Thai Beef

Rating: 4.53 stars
A delicious marinade for flank steak blending the flavors of crushed coriander seed, lime juice, and soy sauce. This marinade can be used well with other meats as well. Serve over rice or shredded Chinese cabbage and red pepper slices.

Mango-Spiced Steak Skewers

Rating: 4.64 stars
This is an adaptation of a recipe we used to serve at the Elks Lodge in Grand Rapids. This was served to hundreds of guests with rave reviews!

"Tastee" Sandwich

Rating: 4.67 stars
If you have grown up, lived, or traveled to the Midwest, this recipe is from a popular restaurant that was in Lincoln, NE. I've been told it's an acquired taste, but having grown up on them, I love them! It's a loose meat sandwich. Use a slotted spoon to portion out the meat. Serve on buns with mustard and sliced dill pickles.

Orange Peel Beef

Rating: 4.34 stars
I came up with this by attempting to duplicate a dish at a local Chinese restaurant. An Asian friend told me that Asian chefs often use baking soda as a meat tenderizer. My family thinks it tastes even better than the original.

Three Meat Loaf

Rating: 3.86 stars
This is a two-loaf recipe. We often prepare this when taking a meal to another family so we can dine on the second loaf. Great with smashed potatoes and green beans or a nice broccoli salad. Can add cheese for extra moisture.

Slow Cooker Ground Beef Barbecue

Rating: 4.25 stars
Good served on buns, and great chili for hot dogs.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Rating: 4.58 stars
This is a great-tasting recipe that is easy to prepare ahead and takes minutes to actually cook it! Serve with rice and veggie side for a nice family dinner!

Air Fryer Meatballs

Rating: 4.9 stars
After cooking meatballs in the air fryer, I will never bake them in the oven again. The insides stay nice and tender while the outsides get a slight crisp on them. The best part is that you can make them ahead of time and freeze for later use. I have included those directions in the notes. Dip meatballs in marinara, if desired.

Creamed Chipped Beef On Toast

Rating: 4.48 stars
My mom used to make this recipe. It can also be made with 3/4 pound browned, drained hamburger. We called it SOS: Same Ole Stuff. Great comfort food! Either recipe is easy to make and tastes great with a cold beer. Serve over toast.

Traditional Gyro Meat

Rating: 4.06 stars
This Greek/Lebanese style meatloaf is sliced and served with pita bread, tzatziki, and tomatoes for a delicious gyro that is the closest I've come to emulating my favorite Mediterranean restaurant. The preparation time seems long, but most of it is resting time, so you can be doing other stuff! You can substitute pork or chicken for the ground lamb and beef if you prefer.

Birria Recipe

Rating: 4.67 stars
A blend of chiles and spices simmered with beef stew meat. Very delicious and served with cilantro, limes, and onion as condiments and Mexican rice or beans as side dishes.

Almost White Castle® Hamburgers

Rating: 4.77 stars

If you are from the Chicago area, you have heard of White Castle® hamburgers. I believe down south they are Krystal®. This is the closest I have come to the real deal. Serve each with American cheese, dill pickle slices, and Dusseldorf mustard. Enjoy!
