Can You Use Ground Beef In This Recipe?

Totally! Our grocery store carries shaved beef right in the butcher department, or if your local to a Trader Joe’s they have shaved beef there, too.

But ground beef really is a perfect substitution if you can’t find it. There won’t be anything different to follow in the recipe, just swap it out for the shaved beef and continue on. What we love about using shaved beef tough is that it helps to hold on to all that delicious, creamy sauce.
