Big Batch Beef

Big Batch Beef is not only a speedy supper solution, it’s a nutrition bonus too – stir in a scoop as an easy way to enrich soups, spaghetti sauces and more. Add in some diced sweet pepper or grated carrot along with the onions and garlic as an easy way to sneak in more veggie content.
