Welcome back for night two of this dinner challenge. I hope you enjoyed last night’s meal and are looking forward to making tonight’s as well.
Tonight I will be sharing a family recipe given to us by an old neighbor. Geraldine lived next door to us when I was just a little girl and she was well into her 70’s. She lived in a very modest way and taught my mother a few tricks of the trade as well.
One of those tricks was this recipe. Prepare yourself for a extremely simple but tasty and filling meal. Let’s get started!
First, brown two pound of hamburger, with a little salt and pepper, in a frying pan. When the meat is about half cooked, start a cup of water in a small pot so that it will begin to boil about the same time as the meat finishes cooking.
Once your meat has finished browning, drain off the excess fat. Divide the meat into half, storing half of the meat in a container for later use.
This dish also re-heats very well for a lunch the next day. One variation you could try so it would have a crispy top would be to place it in the over at 250 degrees for ten minutes. Or add French onions!
Cost for this meal is about $1.75 per person, based on an individual eating about a cup and a half of finished product. Prices may vary based on location of products.
In our house we still had leftovers for later this week. Enjoy!
I hope you enjoyed tonight’s meal. Please feel free to leave a comment of your thoughts on what you thought of the recipe.
