So, the other night, I found myself in a quandary.
It was suppertime, and I had NO MEAT thawed to eat. Nothing! The only thing I could do was try to cook some frozen ground beef (the fastest thing I had available to cook) – and quickly try to figure out what else we could have with it.
You’d think, after almost six months on the GAPS diet, that I would have thought ahead, but alas, this supper completely took me by surprise. (Am I the only one that has ever done this?)
So, wracking my brain, I added some Bubbie’s sauerkraut to the cooked meat, and chopped some fresh vegetables – whew, minor crisis averted. But it got this blogger thinking – I bet I’m not the only one who came home to nothing being prepared, with frozen ground beef as my option. 🙂 Why don’t I put together a list of some great grain-free ground beef options?
Whether you’re in a time crunch or are responsibly planning a week in advance, here are some mouth-watering grain-free dishes that call for ground beef (or ground beef can easily be substituted). Enjoy!
