meat instead of frying to save time freezer cooking
Yes, you read that
right, you can actually boil your hamburger meat when you
are cooking in bulk rather than frying all the hamburger meat.
This saves time because you often have to do multiple batches
of frying hamburger meat because you are usually frying several
pounds throughout the day for all your recipes. And you can
even do it for your regular cooking if you don't want to stand
over a hot fry pan while the hamburger fries.
Also, there is
the added benefit that boiling your hanburger reduces the
amount of fat that will be in the hamburger when it is done,
which means you can save money by purchasing regular hamburger
instead of lean or extra lean, if budget is a concern.
To boil your hamburger,
fill a large stock pot with water. Bring to a boil, then add
hamburger meat. Stir gently to separate. When done, strain
then use in a recipe as usual.
You can also boil
hamburger in one pound increments and then freeze, which enables
you to easily use it in a recipe for your regular cooking.
