The holidays are here which means it’s party time! Change up your parties and gatherings this season with these fun and delicious ways to cook up grass-fed beef.
Avocado Filled with Sausage & Beef Chili: Cook up a pot of Hardwood Smoked Sausage and Beef Chili, and serve it up in (and over the sides!) a half of an avocado for everyone. Assemble a topping bar with shredded cheese, sliced avocado, sour cream, jalapenos, salsa and whatever you prefer.
Sirloin Nachos with Tomatillo Salsa: With tender, marinated grass-fed beef, these Sirloin Nachos with Tomatillo Salsa (ADD recipe link) are finished quickly in the oven with melted cheese. You can marinate and cook the sirloin and make the spicy salsa the day before, and then assemble and finish just before the game. Pile into bowls and serve.
Cheese-Filled Meatballs: Mix 1 pound of ground beef with Italian spices and an egg. Roll it into balls and press a cube of cheese of your choice into each one. Make sure the meat fully surrounds the cheese. Place the meatballs on a baking sheet and broil for around 10 minutes. Pay attention to be sure the cheese doesn’t ooze out. When done, assemble on a platter with toothpicks available and marinara sauce for dipping.
Mini-Stuffed Peppers: Cut off the tops of mini stuffed peppers and remove the seeds. Brown ground beef with minced garlic and onions. Blend beef with cooked rice and canned tomatoes. Fill peppers with the beef mixture and place in a baking dish. Cover with foil and bake in the oven at 400°F for 20 minutes. Top the peppers with shredded cheddar and bake uncovered to melt the cheese.
Loaded Sweet Potato Skins: Bake sweet potatoes in the oven. Cut in half and scoop out most of the potato to use for another recipe (maybe a side dish for a grass-fed tenderloin roast with garlic). Season ground beef with paprika, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder and cook in a sauté pan. Fill potato skins with beef. Melted cheese on top is optional. Garnish with chopped scallions.
