Save Time When Cooking Hamburger

Works for Me Wednesday Meme

This is what works for me:

I cook 4+ pounds of hamburger (or 10 pounds of chicken thighs) all at one time. When the meat has cooled, I freeze it in individual 1 - 2 pound bags. When a recipe calls for a pound of meat, all I have to do is thaw 1 bag of meat and add it to the recipe. It saves me time, because I don't have to cook meat individually and clean a pan each time.

Great tip! I do this for camping, but it never occurred to me to do it for home as well. D'OH!

Good Morning! Hey, I didn't say that you have to use Windex to get the Sharpie off but you probably would've figured that out on your own!

I'm with you on this one! It is a true time saver. :)
Good reminder for all especially when people are looking to save money.

I love doing this. I often divide all the hamburger and put different seasonings in it; one fried with onions, another with taco seasoning, another with burrito seasoning...well you get the idea! :)

I do this, too. It sure makes things easier! I do mine in a big pan in the oven, instead of the stovetop. We're having spaghetti tonight, as a matter of fact, with ground beef I already had browned! One less pot to clean, LOL!
