Saturday Share: Beef and Cornbread Dinner

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

If you’re looking for something easy and delicious to make for a quick dinner, you’ll love this one dish dinner.

With bread, meat, corn, and tomatoes, this dish takes about 15 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to bake. This will serve 6.

Note: The recipe calls for an 8-ounce package of cornbread or corn muffin mix—preferably a mix that does NOT make a sweet cornbread.

If you know how to make cornbread, just make about 2 cups of cornbread batter from scratch. That’s what I do anytime a recipe calls for cornbread batter.

Beef and Cornbread Dinner

* 1 pound of ground beef

* 1 tsp. dried and crushed oregano leaves

* 3/4 cup Pace® Picante Sauce or Rotel canned tomatoes

* 1 8-ounce can of tomato sauce

* 1 16-ounce can of whole kernel corn, drained ( I use Green Giant Mexicorn

* 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

* 1 8-ounce package of cornbread or corn muffin mix (a variety without sugar)


1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Brown ground beef and oregano in a skillet. When browned, pour off the fat.

3. Add picante or tomatoes, the tomato sauce, and the drained corn. Heat through.

4. Stir in shredded cheese.

5. Pour into a 2-quart square baking dish. You can also bake it in a cast iron skillet which looks attractive for serving too. Just remember to put it on a heat-proof trivet.

6. Prepare the cornbread batter. If using a mix, follow the package directions.

7. Spread the batter over the meat mixture in the baking dish.

8. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cornbread topping is golden brown.

9. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving.

10. Optional. If you really love cheese, sprinkle some on top of each serving.

Takeaway Truth

I hope you enjoy this easy bake dinner. May it give you a little more time to relax this weekend.
