I have 9 Paleo ground beef recipes here for you to enjoy. Hamburger meat, as my son calls it, is a great way to go if you eat Paleo and are on a budget. It is also quick and easy to prepare. It cooks up fast because there are no large pieces to take a long time to cook. My children also generally like it better than chicken and they don't seem to get as tired of it as chicken.
I have some great recipes you are going to want to try because it is not just for spaghetti or meatloaf. I thought I'd put them together for you and make it easy to whip up at least 1 week's worth of meals.
Keep in mind that many of these meals can be great for meal prep to partly ahead of time or to make extras and freeze for those nights when you don't have time to cook. Wait. Isn't that every night? Maybe I should have said, "for those nights when you have less time to cook than others."
When you are on the Paleo diet, you really should be trying to eat grass-fed beef when at all possible. If you are looking for a good place to buy it, I buy most of mine at Grassland Beef and I love how easy it is to buy and how affordable it is if I buy a lot and fill up my freezer.
Keep in mind that any of these recipes could be substituted with ground turkey. I love ground turkey because it has a lighter taste and is good for nutritional variety and actually tastes really good. If you are nervous about trying it, mix half ground turkey and half ground beef.
Ground beef is a staple around my house and I bet it is at your house too. You may want to bookmark this post so you can get back to it over and over again.
1. Crock Pot Sloppy Joes - My Natural Family
It's impossible to find a bottle or can of sloppy joe sauce in the store that doesn't have a ton of high fructose corn syrup in it. I got really frustrated with that so I turned made this healthy version of one of my favorite comfort foods. You'll love these sloppy joes because they have BACON in them. Plus I make it with my own Paleo BBQ sauce recipe and my own Paleo hamburger bun recipe. I think you'll be really happy you found this. They are delicious paired with my homemade Paleo Sweet Potato Fries.
2. Easy 20-Minute Healthy Keto Hamburger Bowl - My Natural Family
Red Cabbage - Cherry Tomatoes - Avocado - Paprika - Garlic Powder - Onion Powder - Real Salt - Black Pepper
This is my version of a hamburger in a bowl. Well, it does have a lot of the ingredients on a hamburger but since I can't eat hamburger buns this is the perfect solution. I get all the flavors of the ground beef, tomatoes, avocado and cabbage and I can just eat it with a spoon. Plus, you gotta love that it only takes 20 minutes to make!
3. Beef & Sweet Potato Sliders - Eat Drink Paleo
Sweet Potatoes - Fresh Coriander - Garlic - Onion - Avocado - Tomatoes - Lettuce - Coconut Oil
This is a simple recipe for little hamburger sliders with sweet potato as the buns instead of regular buns. This is a nutrient-packed recipe that would be great on a summer evening or for a quick lunch. I love recipes with simple ingredients and knowing what I am going to be eating!
4. Salisbury Steak - Paleo Leap
Almond Meal - Egg - Garlic - Thyme - Red Onions - Beef Stock - Tomato Paste - Tapioca Starch - Ghee
It wasn't for a while until I realized Salisbury steak isn't actually a recipe for "steak" it is really made from ground beef and is basically a hamburger with a sauce on it. Salisbury steak is also a classic and common frozen food meal. You can find a frozen meal pretty easily.
This could be a good freezer meal you make ahead of time and just simply heat up when you are ready to eat it. So you are looking for a simple meal to have on hand and you can replace with some of those frozen meals in your freezer you might give this one a try.
5. Easy Chili - Real Food with Jessica
Onion - Roasted Tomatoes - Tomato Sauce - Garlic Powder - Chili Powder
Chili can be a hearty and filling meal for lunch or dinner. This is a simple dish where you cook the ground beef and then add all the other ingredients to the pan after you drain the oil and let it cook for about 30 minutes so it can develop flavors and really cook through. They suggest putting this chili on top of zucchini noodles or sweet potatoes to add starch or carb to the meal.
6. Bacon-Wrapped Mini Meatloaves - Healthy Recipes
Garlic Powder - Onion Powder - Smoked Paprika - Thyme - Bacon
This works well as an appetizer or part of the main dish. These fun-size meatloaf bites can also be prepared with another simple veggie dish to make a complete meal. The caramelization of the bacon makes these bacon wraps quite enjoyable to eat and might be hard to share with a whole group.
7. Beef & Cranberry Stuffed Acorn Squash - Strictly Delicious
Acorn Squash - Olive Oil - Garlic - Dried Cranberries - Fresh Rosemary - Caraway Seeds
Here is a dish for pairing a vegetable with a ground beef mixture inside of it. The acorn squash soaks up the flavor of the mixture to give it a yummy flavor. This can be a fun way to mix up having the beef with a vegetable so it is a little different than the last time you had something similar.
8. Stuffed Pepper Soup - Food Fanatic
Coconut Oil - Onion - Bell Pepper - Tomatoes - Tomato Sauce - Chicken Broth - Garlic Powder - Cauliflower
