This is an authentic Brazilian ground beef recipe.
Among everything, we must learn how to make in order to survive it is the ground beef! It’s fast, not expensive, and very, very easy to make. It’s the basics of basics in the kitchen.
And who says ground beef has to be boring? Not sure what to make with ground beef? It’s delicious to eat with:
Yuca (Cassava/manioc) Savoury Pie Fast2eat (as a filling or topping)
Bolognese Sauce Fast2eat (just add Tomato sauce Fast2eat) and use to make a Bolognese Lasagna on any other Pasta…
As a filling of the Brazilian Blender Pie Fast2eat or Shepherd’s Pie.
As a topping of the 15 minutes Baked Potato Fast2eat.
Or just covered with cream cheese (or any cheese) in a casserole.
What else do you suggest?
- 2 tbsp Oil
- 1 Onion - large diced
- 1 tbsp Minced Garlic - or 3 minced cloves
- 1 Kg Ground beef
- ¼ cup Tomato sauce - or 1 Tomato diced peeled and without seeds
- 2 tsp Beef mix
- Paprika - optional to taste
- Green onion - optional to taste
- Thyme - dried - optional to taste
- Oregano - dried - optional to taste
- Parsley - dried - optional to taste
- Basil - dried - optional to taste
- Salt - optional to taste
- Black pepper - optional to taste
- 1/2 cup Sweet corn - canned, drained - optional
- Heat the oil in a large pan, over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
- Add the ground meat and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until meat crumbles and no longer pink.
- Add the remaining ingredients and cook until meat is browned and most of the juice has evaporated. Use the seasonings you like the most, the important thing is to always taste and understand what was the difference that each seasoning made in the flavor
- Taste and add salt if desired. The ground beef has lots of water while you cook it, and you should consider that this water will dry and the flavor of the seasoning will become more pronounced. So wait to taste until all the water has evaporated.
