So I have this very weird conundrum. Can I make a recipe out of these two ingredients? By the way, the chocolate is not the "Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar"-kind but the unsweetened dark cooking chocolate you can find in supermarkets. Any suggestions what recipes I can cook up with them? HELP!

I havent come across a meal or dish that has both beef and chocolate in it. I do watch those cooking shows on lifestyles channels. I do, however, have seen chocolate and chicken mixed together in one dish. But I dont think they used Hershey's chocolate bar. Only those chocolate powder. It made me curious as to how it tastes like cause I love chocolate and I love chicken but Ive never tried them together.LOL Well, maybe there is a recipe out there for you and your beef/chocolate craving. Goodluck and have fun searching!

That's... a really unique combination you have there. I've heard of some beef dishes with a sort of chocolate sauce, so maybe you could try that? I'm not sure how the contrast of sweet chocolate and salty beef will work though.

Of course when I see a conversation like yours words are going to fail me. Oh year, there is a Mexican Mole sauce that I think is made with chocolate in it. I don't know how good that would be on ground beef, but if you really want to cook with the two ingredients together that might be something that would be worth a shot. Probably wouldn't be too bad because it would just be like a different type of taco.

I would fix a swiss steak sort of fancy hamburger steak with a nice vegetable and then make a chocolate mouse for desert. Makes me hungry just to think of it. Flattne the hamburger into nice sized burger shape. Add onion and maybe some herbs, werchestshire sauce to it so it has a nice flavor. Even use the leavin' in the pan after you cooked it and make a light gravy. Mushrooms might even be nice with it. The chocolate could be pudding or mouse or which ever you like.
