Does anyone have any healthy recipes with ground beef.?

I know its not exactly healthy itself. My mom had given me a bunch of meat because she doesnt cook. We usually eat chicken. Any ideas would help. :)

    ground meat is very adaptable. You can make sauces (but pre fry the meat so you can release as much grease as possible), meat balls - (again cooking helps reduce oils), hamburgers (grilling is one good way to keep the fat content down), meatloaf, spanish rice, soups (precook the meat again), etc.

    It's hard to get a meatloaf that's really low in fat/oils, but the rest of these dishes you can strian off the fat then continue to prepare the dish.

    Buy the leanest you can find, and drain the fat. Try sub w ground turkey or chicken -- or use a combo of beef/turkey or chicken.
