For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Frugal food recipes - ground beef

One of the blogs that I read is having a frugal food series. This week iit's about ground beef and I thought I would post 2 of my easiest ground beef recipes:


Beef in brown sauce (actually a french recipe called viande en sauce brune)



  • Brown a pound of ground beef with 1 onion and some garlic. Set aside

  • Prepare a roux (melt butter in the pan and add flour, mixing contstanly until it becomes brown)

  • Add 2 cups of water and 2-3 brouillon cubes, mix until thickened

  • Add beef and let simmer 20 minutes et voila


Beef and pasta dinner



  • Brown 1 pound of ground beef with onion and garlic

  • Add lots of thyme, oregano, rosemary, sage, parsley and basil (I use dried herbs)

  • Add one jar of ragou. Let simmer 15-20 minutes

  • Add cooked pasta and some grated cheese. Mix it all up et voila
