I don’t know about you, but I pretty much always have some ground beef in the freezer. It’s kind of a staple around here.

This is because it’s so quick and easy to cook up, and you can use it in so many delicious meals. Plus, if you forget to defrost it ahead of time (this is me, always) you can even cook it from frozen in your Instant Pot before using it in a recipe.

I’ve included this recipe for Instant Pot Frozen Ground Beef in the list below even though it’s not really a recipe on it’s own. But I use this process so often that I wanted to include it here!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs - Quick and easy sweet and sour meatballs with green pepper and pineapple. On the table in 30 minutes and the whole family will love them!

What is the best way to cook ground beef?

I almost always cook ground beef on the stove in a skillet. This is the quickest and easiest way to cook it when it’s fresh.

Simply cook it over medium heat on the stove, stirring and breaking it up as it cooks, until no pink remains. Drain the grease from the pan, and use the cooked ground beef in any recipe you like.
