These 10 Paleo & AIP Recipes made with ground beef are cheap, easy and convenient to make for dinner, or serve for leftovers!

When I first started going paleo and AIP, I was incredibly nervous about my grocery bill. I never really ate much meat, to begin with, and I had no idea what my budget would even look like if I all of a sudden started buying fancy meats every week. It may seem like it’ll break the bank, but it doesn’t have to! You don’t have to buy expensive cuts of meat for every single meal. That’s where ground beef and these paleo ground beef recipes come in!

I love cooking with ground beef because it’s relatively inexpensive, it’s flavorful, and it keeps you full! I never go without a pound of ground beef in my freezer. Both my husband and I enjoy it, and it’s incredibly versatile!

Some of my favorite sources to get ground beef are local sources at the Dallas Farmers Market, or from ButcherBox! I love my local sources, but I can’t always make it out to the farmers market so that’s where ButherBox comes in. ButcherBox delivers grass-fed, organic meat to your door once a month (or less if you want). They have amazing, delicious beef as well as chicken and pork. If you don’t have a good meat source in your area, or you’re just looking to offset some cost and try something new, ButerBox is a great option.

Right now, ButcherBox is offering 2 lbs of ground beef for free in every single one of your boxes if you sign up to try it by September 30th! This is the best, and highest value gift that I’ve seen them offer, so if you’ve been thinking about trying it, now is an amazing time!

Now, let’s get onto the recipes…
