Boil hamburger 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.
