20 Ground Beef Recipes for the Slow Cooker

I’ve had these recipes posted here on Sidetracked Sarah for a while, but I never took the time to categorize them for you into types of meat.  In fact, I’m realizing that many of you don’t even realize that I have all of these recipes on my site.  I guess that makes sense, most of you didn’t show up here until after they were originally published.  We were talking about my ground beef recipes for the slow cooker on Facebook and I realized I’d better just send out a message with all of them in one place, for your convenience.

I’ve been busy updating pictures, but if you find one that doesn’t have a picture, don’t worry, I’ll get there….eventually!  Please keep in mind, that all of these recipes are also Crockpot Freezer Meals along with many others.

Homemade Biscuit Mix AND Delicious 7-Up Biscuits


7-Up Biscuits -

Do you like bread as much as I do?  I’ve seen the 7-up Biscuits recipe floating around Pinterest for a while now and was always intrigued to give them a try.  My friend Holly took the challenge and sent me these pictures, raving about them!

She said they’re really easy to make in a jiffy and there’s no need to let them rise.  I just happen to be a last minute person, so finding a biscuit recipe that tastes great and works for my last minute schedule, is a great find to me!  :)

The one thing that I don’t like about this recipe is that it uses biscuit mix (aka Bisquick).  I’ve never been one that likes to keep that on hand.  I’m good at not using it up.  But, if you want to make some so that you don’t have to spend the money on the real stuff, it’s not hard.  I’ve done it several times before.  Here’s what you do:

Homemade Biscuit Mix:

10 cups All Purpose flour
1/2 cup baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 cups shortening

Mix first 4 ingredients together and then cut in the shortening, mixing it until it becomes crumbly.  Store in air tight container for up to 6 weeks.  You can also store in the freezer for several months.

If you don’t have shortening on hand, you can switch this out for 1 1/4 cups of oil instead.  


Delicious 7-Up Biscuits



4 cups Biscuit Mix
1 cup sour cream
1 cup 7-Up
1/2 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  
  2. Mix together sour cream, biscuit mix and 7-up.  7 Up Biscuits -
  3. Stir together until it forms a very soft dough.  
  4. Spread flour or biscuit mix on counter.
  5. Flatten your dough mixture
  6. Cut out biscuit shapes using a biscuit cutter or glass. 7 Up Biscuits - 
  7. Melt butter on cookie sheet.  
  8. Once butter is melted, place cut biscuits on the cookie sheet.7 Up Biscuits:
  9. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes (or until golden brown) in preheated oven.  7-Up Biscuits -
