Here we have 10 delicious, and filling, ground beef recipes to satisfy even the biggest appetites at your table. First in the line up is this Instant Pot Lasagna, layer your noodles, meat sauce, and cheese in a spring-form pan, which you will then place on a rack in your Instant Pot, over a cup of water, with a little Instant Pot magic, your lasagna will cook in a mere 12 minutes.
Of course, you’ll wanna let it rest and cool before handling the dish. – The miracle of lasagna. – [Annie] There’s nothing lackluster about these homemade sloppy joes. We take this classic weeknight dinner up a notch with the addition of fresh bell pepper, carrots and a little dry red wine.
We recommend using a blend of ground chuck and ground sirloin for the ultimate beefy combo. Nothing satisfies a hungry belly like hamburger steak, smothered in onion gravy. This meal is a headliner on blue plate menus everywhere.

The flavors are reminiscent of a classic Greek dish known as pastitsio, expect to see some epic cheese pulls as you serve this comfort meal that’s covered in hot melty mozzarella. A tamale is traditionally wrapped, cooked, and served in a corn husk, but our take on this classic Mexican dish calls for corn chips.
Tamale pie is basically a deep dish of hot bubbling tamale filling, covered in cheesy crispy corn chip topping. Stop drooling! We still have a couple of recipes to get through. Now, this slow-cooker beef and sweet potato chili may be a little out of season for a 4th of July pool party, (water splashing) but it does feature bold, bright flavors like cumin and cilantro that are always in style.
We recommend you serve this chili indoors, where the AC is ice cold. Or save the recipe for cooler days ahead. In these Thai beef cabbage cups, fresh cilantro mingles with traditional Thai flavors of lime, roasted peanuts, ginger, and sesame, for a savory filling that’s sure to please everyone at the table.
