Since I haven't done a recipe in a long while, I thought I would share what we are having for lunch today.
BBQ Beef Bake
This yummy recipe is perfect for dutch oven cooking or in a wood cook stove. I love to use my cast iron for this because I can brown my meat and bake all in one pan. Who am I kidding, I just love cast iron!
- 1 lb ground turkey or 1 lb ground beef
- 3/4 cup chopped onions
- 1 (16 ounce) jars barbecue sauce
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Corn bread mix
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 3/4 cup cornmeal
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 egg whites or 1 egg, beaten
Brown meat with onion. Drain off grease. Add BBQ sauce and mix well. Spoon into 9x13 ungreased baking dish. Sprinkle half of the cheese on the meat. Spoon corn bread mix on top of meat mixture/cheese.
Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 min. (or until lightly brown).
While this recipe isn't very fancy, it sure is good. I guess if you really wanted to go crazy you could add corn to the corn bread. The corn bread by the way, is very good by itself too. To make just corn bread bake at the same temperature for the same amount of time.
