I'm behind on posting, so here's a brief summary of my recent beef usage.
Nachos: The hubby used 1 lb ground beef to make nachos. It made enough for two dinners.
Steak: I made NY strip steak. I decided to marinade the steak for a few hours in my usual steak marinade (red wine + garlic + dill + black pepper). Honestly, the marinade didn't seem to go very well with the meat. I'm guessing this meat is more flavorful than what I used to use with this marinade.
Shepherd's Pie: 1 pound of ground beef made two small casserole dishes of Shepherd's Pie. It's always a lot of work, but tasty.
Pasta with Meat Sauce: This old stand by used 1 more pound of ground beef.
