How could I set out to create a bunch of Ground Beef Recipes That Aren’t Burgers or Meatballs without including Sloppy Joes? It’s a classic, and one that I’m guessing is missed when people cut out processed foods.
The inspiration behind creating non-burger ground beef recipes came in the form of a box of the best quality meats showing up on my doorstep. Is this real life? Yes! Because Butcher Box does exactly that-sends quality meats to your doorstep. You can read more about them here.
