Tips for Success
Here are a few tricks and tips to get the most out of your ground beef.
- Get some color on it. Don’t be afraid of cooking with a high temperature when cooking your ground beef, and don’t feel like you need to constantly stir it. Just like a steak, ground beef is best when it gets a little color on it.
- It can take seasoning. You can put a lot of seasoning on ground beef. Don’t be shy with the salt or the spices when cooking with ground beef!
- Cook off the liquid. There’s often a bit of liquid in ground beef, and it can easily mess up a recipe. When cooking the beef, make sure to either pour off the liquid as it leaks out of the meat, or cook the beef long enough that the liquid evaporates.
