- 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
- 1 can Rotel
- 2 cups beef broth
- 1 cup uncooked macaroni noodles
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 3/4 cup milk
- 4 oz. (1 cup) shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- pepper to taste
- Brown ground beef and onion together until meat is cooked through, drain off any excess grease.
- Add the taco seasoning, Rotel, broth and macaroni noodles.
- Heat entire mixture to boiling. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover, simmering for 12-14 minutes until macaroni is tender.
- While the hamburger mixture is simmering, melt the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk and bring to a boil. Whisk until smooth and thickened to a gravy-consistency. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in cheese until melted. Add the salt and pepper to the cheese sauce.Once the hamburger mix is cooked through, pour the cheese sauce over the top and blend to combine.
Ground Beef Budget 2013
I have been posting a wide variety of homemade recipes that I have prepared in my kitchen but with a name like Ground Beef Budget you expect to find lot’s of recipes that contain ground beef and I have a goal to collect 1000 for this site. It would be impossible for me to meet that goal without the help of my friends, readers and blogging buddies.
My blogging friend Juanita from juanitascocina.blog.com was nice enough to send me a few of her wonderful recipes. The first one I will share with you is this recipe that sounds divine, Salisbury Steaks With Carmelized Onions. I think I will be cooking this one for dinner really soon.
Special Thanks to Juanita for sharing this recipe and be on the look out for 2 more to show up soon from her.
Salisbury Steaks With Caramelized Onion Gravy
- 2 large red onions, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 cups low-sodium beef broth
- 1/2 cup dry red wine (optional)
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
- Salt and pepper
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1/2 cup cooked white rice
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- First:To make gravy: Heat butter in a large sauté pan. Add onions and cook over medium-high heat, until onions start to brown, stirring occasionally.When the onions are slightly softened and turning a deep honey brown, add 1/4 cup of the broth.Reduce heat, cover and continue cooking, adding more broth as needed to prevent caramelized bits at the bottom of the pan from burning. It should take at least 25 to 30 minutes to properly caramelize onions.
- While onions are caramelizing, make patties: Mix ground beef, rice, egg yolk, salt, pepper, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, parsley and thyme in a medium sized bowl.Divide into 4 equal sized portions and shape into 4 oval patties about 3/4-inch thick.Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Sear patties about 3 minutes per side, or until a brown crust forms.
- Return to the onion pan to finish your gravy, stir in flour and cook for about 2 minutes. Add wine and reduce by half. Stir in remaining beef broth and tomato paste. Stir in cider vinegar. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.Pour gravy over patties and simmer for an additional 10 minutes until meat is done.
