From hearty casseroles, to tacos, meatloaves and pasta dishes, we share our favourite ground beef recipes.
Our quick mini lasagnas give you all the cheesy, hearty flavours of classic lasagna, without the time-consuming process of layering.
This tasty recipe is a quick fix when tacos just won't do. There is no rolling involved and each slice has a generous helping of thick enchilada sauce.
East meets West in these tasty little bites. We've doubled up on the spring roll wrappers, which provides extra crunch and prevents the filling from bursting out.
The beef and lentil combination gives the burgers a tender texture, and the jalapeno supplies a spicy kick.
A touch of horseradish adds zesty flair to classic meat loaf. Cooking the onion, celery and garlic before adding them to the mixture means the loaf is tender and evenly flavoured.
This kid-friendly dinner is made with ingredients most people keep on hand in the refrigerator and pantry.
This quick meal packs the addictive flavours of classic beef tacos onto crispy flatbread crusts. Go ahead and customize the recipe using any produce from your fridge.
Spinach adds extra nutrients to these juicy beef meatballs.
This tidy version of a sloppy joe is perfect for small hands. Serve the extra sauce on the side for dipping. Kids with bigger appetites will want to eat two!
Creamy mushroom sauce elevates meat loaf to new heights. A double dose of mushrooms – dried in the loaf and fresh in the sauce – is a dream for mushroom lovers.
Ginger, cumin and curry powder give this beef and rice dish some serioius flavour. This quick meal is perfect for weeknights, as it cooks in 30 minutes.
Layer after scrumptious layer of rich meat sauce, tender pasta and creamy cheese make this lasagna the best you'll ever have.
These bite-size meatballs are tossed in a retro sweet and sour sauce that everyone will love.
All you'll need to make this classic dish is some ground beef, a couple of onions and some pantry staples.
There's no need to choose between shepherd's pie and beef Stroganoff, thanks to this simple skillet dinner, which combines a creamy mushroom-and-beef filling with a smooth, buttery potato topping.
Fifteen minutes of prep time is all you need to make these flavourful muffin meat loaves.
Classic beef tacos are a real crowdpleaser and a family favourite. To feed more people, simply double or triple the recipe.
To mark this milestone, the iconic brand launched the IKEA Then & Now exhibit at the Design Exchange, in Toronto this week. We recently sat down with Marcus Engman, head of design, to talk about his role at IKEA and his vision for the future.
Sarah Gunn: What changes have you implemented as head of design?
Marcus Engman: I like IKEA to be a curiosity-driven company, which is why we started short-term collections and collaborations. I don’t choose people to work with first—I choose topics. When we find a topic that we want to investigate, or are curious about, we go and seek out the best people to work with.
SG: Are there any upcoming collaborations you can tell us about?
ME: We don’t just work with product designers and fashion designers. Now we’ve started collaborations with three different universities around the world. It’s a little bit of a different approach that I want to try out.
SG: Do you have a favourite IKEA product?
ME: We’re redoing the Klippan sofa every year with different collections because we think it’s such an iconic piece. It has an important history for me because my father designed it. It was the first sofa designed for families with kids. We had one at home and he forced us to play on it to see if it worked.
SG: Would you consider re-launching any vintage IKEA pieces?
ME: Yes, you’re going to be the first one that hears this! We had a “golden era” of design at IKEA in the ‘80s. We’re researching products that we had in the range (and products that never made it) for a possible collection.
We're crossing our fingers that this Jarpen wire chair makes a comeback!
The IKEA Then & Now exhibit runs until October 30th at the Design Exchange. From the 1970s to today, take a stroll through their evolution of design, and relive your youth by diving into the ball pit!
