So, what’s for dinner tonight? If you’re like me, you probably make ground beef for dinner at least once a week. It’s relatively cheap, kid friendly, easy to work with and very versatile.

Still, it’s easy to get into a rut, and maybe you’re getting tired of the same recipes over and over. Sound familiar? If so, I’ve got some delicious ground beef recipes for you to try!

Some of these recipes are made in the Instant Pot. Some are your basic one pot dinners. The only recipes I didn’t include in this roundup are burger recipes since those are kind of a separate class all together. But what all of these easy ground beef recipes have in common is that they are quick, easy and incredibly delicious!
