Triple-Batch Beef Recipe

"Because I work full-time, I like to cook ahead and freeze meals so things aren't so hectic when I get home," writes Heidee Manrose of Burns, Wyoming. "I keep portions of this economical meat mixture in heavy-duty resealable plastic bags in the freezer. After a busy day, It's easy to fix one of the three variations I've included here."
