Whole Lotta Meat

RaleighRocker | Aug 20, 2009 12:46 AM

Ground beef that is. 3lbs. to be exact. It was on sale awhile back, and we bought about 12 lbs of it, and well my boyfriend and I are not the most organized people in the world, or I would have seperated it into patties or whatnot. So I open the fridge tonight to see he's defrosting one of the 3lb packages. Last time he did this, it went bad before we had a chance to cook it, as we ended up going out of town.

So this is the deal.

We have a tiny, hot as hell apt, are broke (food stamps broke), and are without a grill.

I want to make something with this meat tomorrow night that will not involve staying in said hot kitchen for hours, that obviously does not involve a grill, and uses either inexpensive ingredients (I have about 80 bucks for the rest of aug) or stuff we already have on hand.

If it were winter, I'd jump on the chili train. Hamburgers seem so obvious, I do have a nicely seasoned pan, but that's a lot of burgers for two. Meatloaf-perhaps. I'm imagining 2 or three meals out of this meat.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

One thing that is in the back of my mind, but I am at a loss of a recipe is a stuffed eggplant recipe my mother used to make.
