9 Easy & Delicious Ground Beef Recipes

Ground beef recipes should be the foundation of your Bulletproof Diet, especially if you’re on a budget. There’s no question that grass-fed beef is more expensive than meat from conventional, grain-fed cows. Luckily, ground beef isn’t just cheaper — it’s convenient, fast, and flavorful. And as these ground beef recipes prove, there are a million different ways to prepare it.

Grass-fed beef has soared in popularity over the past few years, due to the growing acceptance that grass-fed beef is much more nutritious than factory-farmed, conventional beef. Big farms often feed their cattle hay pellets rather than setting their cows out to pasture to eat fresh grass. Due to this less-than nutritious animal feed, the resulting beef doesn’t possess the same nutritional profile it had decades ago. To truly stay Bulletproof and reap the nutritional benefits of grass-fed beef, buy pasture-raised beef from small or local farms. Chances are these smaller, local farms have more diverse grass for the animals to feed upon – which translates to better nutritional quality for you.

While that does up the cost, compared to buying your beef at the supermarket, you can be sure you’re actually getting what you pay for. That’s why ground beef is an appealing economical solution.

Feast your eyes on these nine delicious ground beef recipes — and get cooking.
