25 Easy Ground Beef Recipes is a sponsored collaboration with the Beef Checkoff, but all of the opinions expressed are my own honest experiences.
All of us lead busy lives. I get it. Even though my husband and I are in the empty nest phase of our marriage, life never seems to slow down. I thought once the kids were grown and gone, we’d have all the time in the world. Boy was I wrong.
Are these easy ground beef meals?
Although we’re busy, we still have to eat. That’s where easy meals that taste good and fuel your body come in. We live smack dab in the middle of farm country, so meat is a big part of our food plan. Making sure that we have a wide variety of lean protein on the menu is important to me.
It’s also important that the recipes I find are easy ground beef meals because I don’t have the time or the patience to be slaving away in the kitchen each and every night, my husband doesn’t either! We are both big fans of easy ground beef recipes like these!

When you are shopping or ordering out, look for the words “Round” or “Loin” when you choose cuts of beef or burgers. When buying ground beef, read the packaging and choose something that is 95% lean or leaner.
