We are in a rut for meals during the week. I need some recipes that use beef. Ground beef, steak, whatever. I appreciate all the help I can get! Quick ones - I usually don't get home until 5:45.....
I'll post my Taco Soup Recipe for you tonight or tomorrow. Basically, brown some hamburger, add kidney beans, fresh or dried onions, stewed tomatoes, canned corn, hot sauce and spices and simmer for 20 minutes - BAM! dinner done. Some corn bread on the side is good or chips.

If you want I can give you guess on quantity and you can make it up since it sounds like you are a no measure type chef like myself. Or wait for recipe whatever you want.

crock pot!!!! add a meat add a liquid, add a vegi, make a starch or grain when you get home!

personally I hate this recipe, but the kids and hubby love it so I still make it a couple times a year:

roast - any kind
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg lipton onion soup

crock pot

put the onions in first, then the carrotts, then the potatoes, then the roast, sprinkle with onion soup,then smear with mush soup. Done when you get home.

add a jar of salsa or BBQ sauce to any cut . . . done when you get home.

Ooooh, I thought Ken was supposed to be off beef because of his heart problems?
Oh dear.... No, his total cholesterol was 72. 72!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He needs all the cholesterol he can get right now. Still lean beef, and more veggies and stuff, but he has to eat beef, nuts, avocados (which he hates), etc. He is actually on meds now to raise his cholesterol. Yes, we do have some weird issues going on with him! His iron was WAY low too, which is why the beef. His bad cholesterol was 18 and his good was 35..... Both are far too low. Weird, right?
He hates avocados? And lives in CA?

I'll poke through the recipe box for you. Is there anything on the no-no list?
I just google for recipes. You will find more than you could make in 10 lifetimes. I usually print it out, and if we like it I put it in my binder, if not I toss it.
