Cheesesteak Style Sloppy Joes are the most popular dinner recipe BY FAR. Readers love this recipe due to the ease of preparation and the unique flavor that sets it apart from your everyday sloppy joe. Not only that, but ground beef is an economical ingredient to keep on hand for quick weeknight meals.
If you’re looking for a more traditional take on cheesesteak, try my Best Ever Cheesesteak recipe. Made with thin-sliced ribeye, this cheesesteak can be made with any of your favorite toppings (but onions are a must!).
Soups, stews, and sauces
Slow Cooker Chili is always a great choice for lazy Sundays. I like to make a double batch and freeze extra – chili freezes very well and reheats easily on the stove top.
Make a big batch of Easy Homemade Spaghetti Sauce – another freezer friendly recipe! I like to use this sauce to make lasagna, to serve over pasta, or to make baked ziti. Make with half ground beef and half sausage for added flavor.
A reader favorite in the winter months, Easy Beef Stew from Scratch makes for an easy dinner, but needs a few hours on the stove to make your stew meat fall-apart tender.
Broccoli Cheddar Stuffed Chicken – is an easy dinner that combines two of my favorites – broccoli and cheese! Don’t forget to pound your chicken breasts to a 1-inch thickness so they’ll bake quickly in the oven.
One pan meals
Chicken Bacon Ranch Pasta is a one pan meal that’s ready in about 30 minutes. Plus, it’s absolutely filled with flavor and has a small list of ingredients! You’ll need a pack of ranch seasoning (or your own homemade Ranch Seasoning) for this recipe.
Especially popular after Thanksgiving and Christmas, this Leftover Turkey Alfredo Skillet Meal can also be made with chicken or ham! This recipe is another one pan meal that’s ready in about 30 minutes.
