Pre-Cooking Ground Beef



In addition to batch cooking on the weekend, I brown my ground beef (all of it) as soon as I get home from the grocery store. We don't eat many hamburgers. It saves time because it cooks more quickly because it's not frozen and is ready when I need it later that week: shepherd's pie, chilli, etc.

  • I do this a lot, and it's ready when I want or need it. I have never rinsed it before. What a great idea. will have to try.

    P.S. If I'm sure I will be using it all for one type of meal (such as speghetti sauce, etc) I will season accordingly. Sometimes I will cook is 2 or 3 batches and season each one a bit differently. - by LITTLEWIND53
  • Just wondering, does anyone season the ground beef when cooking it all at one time? If so, with what?

  • Helpful hint...After cooking ground beef,put beef in a strainer and run it under hot water,rinsing the meat runs off extra fat and calories without changing the meats flavor or texture.... - by DIANE929
