Mix it, shape it, cook it (or freeze it): Our four deliciously different meals all begin with one simple ground-meat recipe.
You may already count on ground meat for easy meals (chances are, you have some in the fridge now). And for good reason: It can be the foundation for dinners both comforting and exotic, whether an all-American meat loaf or spicy Asian-style kebabs. But you can make this staple work even harder for you. With our clever, time-saving Ground-Meat Mix technique, you prepare multiple meals at once, so you'll eat well tonight and stock the freezer, too.
Start with a mix of ground beef and pork (using the two results in a rich, balanced flavor) and add some kitchen basics -- bread, milk, egg, garlic, and onion -- to turn it into a flavorful base for our recipes. The only hard part is deciding which to enjoy tonight and which to save for another day.
