Easy One-Pot Beef Macaroni is a popular quick-cooking recipe that has been enjoyed by friends and family for generations. You can prepare this dish quickly in the comfort of your own home and take it along on your camping trip or fishing trip. Even better, you can make this dish for your entire family and have everyone raving about how good it was! It’s an easy fix that can be made at home you’re in the mood for cooking up a tasty meal.
You’ll start the recipe off with a beef soup base so you can add any chicken or pork to the mix as you wish. I prefer to use beef because the sauce is usually a bit thicker. However, if using chicken or pork, simply follow recipe instructions and add whatever meat they call for. It will be ready to cook in no time! Then you just continue with the rest of the ingredients.
Another very simple step in this dish is the actual cooking. Simply add all the soup base ingredients to your pot and turn the heat to bring the pot to a simmer. Allow it to simmer for a few minutes. Don’t open the lid at this time. You want to focus on letting the sauce simmer. Simply grab a plastic lid and flute the sauce with a spatula to release the contents when it’s ready. Easy enough, right?
I like to serve the Easy One Pot Beef Macaroni with a simple salad or some sliced fresh veggies for the end results. I usually prefer to keep the beef separate from the sauce and then add the vegetables separately if using the traditional sauce. The taste can be adjusted by adding more onions, garlic, or herbs. If using a traditional macaroni recipe, you can substitute ground beef, ground chicken, or ground pork for the beef.
I simply use my garlic press to make glazed garlic, which is sold at any grocery store. I pour about 2 cups of either white wine or homemade chicken stock into the press, leaving the skins on. Using a meat mallet or rolling pin, crush the garlic into small pieces. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Let simmer for another couple of minutes before removing the bones and shredding the meat.
A one-pot beef and bean meal is very simple and tasty with a fresh bean dip, freshly tossed salad mix and a few crunchy greens. Try serving this with some corn on the cob or some lightly steamed broccoli. It’s sure to be a huge hit at your next dinner party!
For the ultimate in easy preparation, try making a beef and bean recipe baked in the oven. Follow this up by adding a homemade pasta sauce (or use your favorite store-bought sauce) to the sauce and browning the beans in the sauce before finishing up the ingredients for the final sauce. This is a delicious and healthy meal that won’t have you reaching for the garbage can! You can also try adding different types of vegetables and cooked pasta for an extra taste sensation for a taste testing difference. Be sure to serve it up soon after cooking it, as it can get quite hot!
