Instructions

  1. Season minced beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat, add oil. Once hot, add the minced beef, flatten like a big patty, then leave it untouched for 6 minutes. Break the patty into randomly sized chunks, then turn it over and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and set aside, reserving oil.
  3. In the same pan, add oil, then cook bacon strips until crispy on both sides. Remove bacon from the pan, let it cool, then chop it into smaller pieces. Set aside.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.
  5. At the same time, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, salt, and pepper, and stir until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  6. Pour in milk slowly while stirring continuously. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture is smooth and bubbling, about 5 minutes, making sure the milk doesn’t burn.
  7. Add Cheddar cheese and stir until melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
  8. Drain macaroni and fold it into the cheese sauce until coated.
  9. Add the minced beef and a bit of the reserved oil into the cheese sauce-coated macaroni, toss and fold.
  10. Place on a serving platter, drizzle with chopped bacon.
  11. Serve hot and enjoy!
