Savory Sunday: Weeknight Beef Favorites

Welcome to Savory Sunday! That’s what we call our meal planning system that helps you transform budget-friendly staples into 4 easy weeknight meals. It all starts with a prep day on (you guessed it!) Sunday, then your meals will come together in just a few minutes each night. Saving time–and money–has never been so easy! This week’s Savory Sunday meal plan is designed to make the best use of a value pack of affordable and versatile ground beef (with one wild card night – this one is eggplant parmesan!) You’ll find easy notes in the instructions of each recipe to tell you how to get started. Get to preppin’ on Sunday, then put your apron away for the rest of the week.

Eggplant Parmesan

It’s a classic Italian dish that makes the perfect meatless meal. Hearty eggplant slices hold up well to a crunchy coating of bread crumbs, and they reheat well, too. Want even more veg? Serve it over sautéed zoodles.  

Beef and Pea Stuffed Peppers

There’s no shortage of good stuff here. Colorful peppers get a hearty filling made with sautéed beef, onions, and Italian seasonings. Peas add a touch of green inside, and the surprise sunflower seeds supply a fun and satisfying crunch.

Tex-Mex Black Bean, Corn, and Beef Stew

Not quite a chili, not quite a stew, this saucy bowlful of flavor brings together the best of both worlds. Serve with sour cream and cilantro to balance out the spice, and you won’t believe how much flavor you can fit on one spoon. Scoop it up with tortilla chips for game day, or spoon it over rice to stretch the generous batch even further.

Vietnamese Burgers

If you like burgers, you’ll love this southeast Asian-inspired version. Start the quick pickle mixture first and it’ll be ready by the time your burgers are done.  With shredded carrots, sriracha and a topping of chopped peanuts, it’s a whole lot of flavor in a little bit of time. That’s a weeknight dinner winner!
