Some of my fav Ground Beef Recipes

These three recipes are simple to make & the ingredients are easy to find which make them the perfect weekday dinner!

The Tenen Family Meatloaf was a recipe our family ate often when I was growing up. With the addition of ketchup, which was my moms’ favourite ingredient in just about everything she cooked, it is very flavourful!

Pineapple Meatballs is a recipe that is so delish! Saucy, sweet & tangy these meatballs are so good served over rice or quinoa is great!

All three of these recipes are great as left-overs too!

Beef & Cornbread Skillet Pie

This is an old recipe I used to make when I lived in Yellowknife. It is similar to a Shepard’s Pie I suppose, but with a cornbread top instead of mashed potatoes. Beef & Cornbread Skillet Pie I made this in a cast iron skillet but if you don’t have one, use a skillet that is…

When I moved out she gave some ‘recipes’ but they were pretty vague so I called my go-to friend, Mrs. Shapiro, to ask for tips on how to make this wonderful soup.
