I LOVE cooking with ground beef for a few reasons {we always have a freezer full!} and one of those reasons is……it’s easy to cook when it’s frozen.

HA. You think I’m kidding? Nope.

I am the worst at remembering to get the meat out of the fridge the day before I need it, and ground beef just makes my life easier. Pop that frozen pound into the pan with a lid and you can still have dinner ready in a flash.

I also love that ground beef is super affordable! If you know me, you know I love a deal. We usually have a freezer stocked with ground beef but when we need to buy it, I always buy it in bulk. You can usually find ground beef for a great price during sales. Even if you can’t use it all right away, divide it into 1 pound quantities. Then, put them in a quart-sized freezer bag and make the ground beef as flat as possible. That way they are easy to thaw out!

How to use Frozen Ground Beef

  • Place frozen ground beef in a pan over low heat, covered with a lid.
  • When the bottom is lightly browned, flip the frozen ground beef over, scrape the top with a spatula to remove the cooked and thawed ground beef.
  • Repeat flipping and scraping until you can break up the frozen ground beef completely!

I hope that this post was helpful and gave you lots of ideas for quick and easy dinners! I know how hard it is to get a meal on the table when you’re tired, the kids are screaming and you forgot to get the ground beef out the night before. These recipes are the answer! Stash whole recipes in your freezer or whip up these quick ground beef recipes in 30 minutes or less. Happy cooking!
