Tuesday Tip: Pre-cook ground beef

I always buy a club pack or Costco size ground beef and cook up the whole thing to use for dinners through-out the next couple weeks.  Store the cooked ground beef in separate freezer bags so you can pull one out at a time for spaghetti, tacos, chili, nacho night and more.



Easy-peasy and saves so much time during the week!

Do you have a time saving tip for us?

  2. I buy the same pack from Costco but package it up raw. I never thought to cook it all first then package it. Great idea!

  3. That is a great idea (I usually use ground turkey, but same idea!) Cuts down cook time by a lot, not to mention the weeknight mess is smaller!

  11. Pre-cooking ground beef is a great tip. My tip is make a weekly menu, than you know what you need and have a plan, rather than getting home and asking the question what are we going to eat, than running out to get groceries.
