I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

BBQ Beef Bowl

This came from the free Kraft magazine I get, which usually has great recipes. This was a good one, though not GREAT. It needs some jazzing up, so next time I'll probably experiment with some more veggies and seasonings. I can't find the recipe right now, so this is what I remember. I reheated the leftovers with some Frank's Red Hot sauce and it was much tastier, so I would probably add some to the beef while it's simmering next time.

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 white or yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • cooked white rice

1. Brown beef and yellow onion in skillet over medium high heat. Drain excess fat from pan and place back on heat.

2. Add corn, tomatoes and bbq sauce, mixing thoroughly. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium low. Simmer 15 minutes until thick.

3. Serve beef over white rice and top with green onions.

Hey, thanks for this recipe.
It's always good to have some new recipes for mince.

I gave it a go but added some fresh chili, you can read about it on my blog. Will be adding a pic in the next 24 hours or so.

Thanks again, Ruth

This was good, but I agree with adding the Frank's Red Hot. Definitely gave it the kick it needed.
