Trying to lose weight does NOT mean you have to eat sad, boring food. These Weight Watchers (WW) ground beef recipes are here to prove it!
WW is a popular weight loss system that uses points to encourage better food choices.
Whole, unprocessed foods have lower points, so you get to eat more and still lose weight.
On the plans, ground beef is worth 3-5 points, depending on the fat content.
The leaner the beef, the lower the points. Add some veggies or a delicious sauce, and you’re in business.
That’s where these delicious WW ground beef recipes come in.
This list has hearty favorites like spaghetti bolognese and fun new ideas like the Big Mac salad.
Each of these 17 recipes is filling, flavorful, and weight-loss friendly. Heck! Even if you’re not on the program, you’ll love these tasty recipes.
1. Weight Watchers Mexican Beef Skillet
This delicious, easy, and fast skillet is the perfect combo of chili and tacos.
So, if you can’t choose between the two one day, make this!
Or just make it any time because it’s delicious!
This skillet features ground beef, onions, tomatoes, corn, black beans, and a crushed pepper.
It also has a little sour cream for extra flavor and creaminess. Top with shredded cheese!
The best part is that it’s made in one pot, so clean-up is a breeze.
2. Weight Watchers Hamburger Stroganoff
This hearty stroganoff has the same delicious taste as classic stroganoff without all the calories. This WW version is still creamy, flavorful, and very filling.
This recipe swaps many of the ingredients for low-fat versions.
It uses lean ground beef, fat-free cream of mushroom soup, and low-fat sour cream. Don’t worry, it still tastes great!
Serve it over egg noodles for a delectable dinner everyone will love. And if your family members don’t know it’s low-calorie, they won’t even notice!
3. Thai Basil Ground Beef Bowl
Your tastebuds are in for an exciting treat with this Thai basil ground beef bowl.
Don’t be fooled by its humble appearance. This dish is full of flavor, and it’s super healthy!
It features lean ground beef, asparagus, and cauliflower rice. It’s simple and healthy, but the seasonings are the stars here.
Chili paste, Thai basil, ginger, cloves, scallions, and soy sauce add boatloads of flavor. It’s sweet, savory, spiced, and spicy.
Obviously, this is WW-friendly, but it can also fit into several other diets/lifestyles.
4. One-Pot Bacon Cheeseburger Pasta
Sometimes you want burgers, sometimes you want pasta. Now, you won’t have to choose.
This delicious pasta tastes exactly like a burger, complete with ketchup, mustard, and pickles.
It has bacon, too! And clean-up is super easy because everything is cooked in one pot.
5. Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy
Salisbury steak is a classic American dish, inspired by the German Hamburg steak.
It’s like an individual-sized meatloaf that’s served with brown gravy. It’s stick-to-your-ribs kinda food.
And although Salisbury steak has sort of received a bad rap, it’s actually pretty tasty. And this lighter version is super yummy!
Each beef and turkey patty is served in a savory mushroom sauce. It’s amazing.
6. Big Mac Salad
I’ll bet McDonald’s corporate wishes they had this on their menu. This salad is delicious but healthy, and it tastes just like a Big Mac.
You start with your burger basics of ground beef, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, and tomatoes.
But the dressing is where this turns from basic burger salad to Big Mac.
The dressing is a low-carb-friendly Big Mac sauce copycat. It’s bold, tangy, and delicious.
7. One-Pot Cabbage Casserole
A better name for this dish would be lazy cabbage roll casserole. Like a traditional cabbage roll, this dish is flavorful and filling.
It features ground beef, cabbage, rice, tomatoes, and an onion.
Unlike traditional cabbage rolls, this casserole is super easy and doesn’t take hours to make!
Top them with cheese and enjoy!
8. Weight Watchers Beef Enchilada Casserole
Say goodbye to rolling tortillas with this delicious, low-carb dish!
Don’t be fooled by the name, as these are basically enchiladas. They’re simply layered like lasagna instead of in burrito-like rolls.
9. Cheesy Cajun Beef and Potato Bake
Got some WW points to spare? Try this Cajun potato bake! This dish is cheesy, bold, and a nice way to indulge but stay on track.
Crispy hash browns, flavorful beef, spicy and gooey cheese… what more could you ask for?
10. Ground Beef and Cheddar Casserole
If you love Italian flavors but are tired of spaghetti, give this casserole a whirl. It’s sort of like an Italian stroganoff with extra veggies.
Each forkful contains a delicious mix of beef, egg noodles, and veggies in a tomatoey sauce.
Sour cream and parmesan cheese add a wonderful, flavorful creaminess to the dish.
Of course, you can’t forget the cheese. That goes on top and it’s fabulous.
11. Skinny Meatloaf
This skinny meatloaf might be lighter than average, but it sure isn’t thin on flavor.
It has a bold taste, courtesy of a dry onion soup mix and Italian breadcrumbs.
It’s topped with a delicious tomato glaze. Plus, it’s super moist, so you really can’t go wrong.
12. Beef Stroganoff Bubble-Up Casserole
Now, THIS is my kind of stroganoff. But it’s stroganoff with a twist.
It’s creamy and beefy, like your traditional stroganoff. It has a deep flavor and a myriad of mushrooms, like your traditional stroganoff. But…
Instead of egg noodles, this recipe calls for pre-made biscuit dough.
And you bake them right into the dish with the rest of the ingredients. It’s so good.
13. Weight Watchers Cheeseburger Soup
This delicious soup gives you the best parts of a burger without the unnecessary calories. It even includes fries! Sort of…
This soup is creamy, cheesy, and loaded with everything you want when you have cheeseburgers.
There’s bacon, potatoes (fries), cheese, pickles, and juicy beef.
This soup has all of that deliciousness, but only a fraction of the calories.
14. Homemade Hamburger Helper
Hamburger Helper was a staple growing up. It was quick, easy, yummy, and totally kid-approved. Plus, it was very cost-effective.
Well, this homemade version is all of that and more. It’s even better though, because you know exactly what’s in it.
I’m not entirely sure you can say that about the pre-made stuff.
15. Weight Watchers Spaghetti Bolognese
It’s classic spaghetti bolognese but lighter and just as filling. Typical bolognese is rich, fatty, and not exactly diet-friendly.
This version uses lean ground beef, whole-wheat pasta, and lots of veggies.
All of that simmers in a delicious tomato sauce. It tastes just as good, but it won’t weigh you down.
16. Weight Watchers Slow-Cooker Chili
This recipe is potluck and chili cook-off approved!
The best part is that it’s prep and go. After you prep everything, you let the Crockpot do its thing.
Eight hours later, dinner is ready to go and you get more family time. #winning
17. Easy One-Pot Skillet Lasagna
I love lasagna. However, I do not love the hassle of making lasagna. Therefore, I don’t make it nearly as often as my tastebuds would appreciate.
This easy one-pot skillet lasagna solves that problem! There’s no separate noodle-cooking or excessive layering.
But it’s meaty, cheesy, saucy, and tastes exactly like lasagna.
It’s delicious, and I think even Garfield the cat will approve!
