how to brown ground beef

Browning ground beef is one of the simplest and easiest meats to cook. If you are in a hurry, ground beef is your kind of meat.

It is extremely easy to cook and take about 8-10 minutes. Here is how you do it:

Preheat stove to medium high heat.

Place your ground beef in a non stick pan and place on stovetop.

As your meat begins to cook, take a metal spatula, and begin to cut up the meat with it. As you cut your meat, be sure to rotate and flip it, so you can ensue that all the meat gets cooked.

Continue this chopping, rotating and flipping process until there are no large meat chunks, and no pink areas in the meat.

I then like to rinse and drain my meat. I do this by running it under water, then using the spatula to hold the meat in, I tilt the pan, and let the water and grease drip out.

I repeat this washing and draining process about 2 more times.

Again the draining is optional, but i find that it’s a bit more clean to work with, and the sauce stick to the meat a little better, when there is less grease. It’s also better for tender stomachs.

how to make it healthier

Don’t get me wrong, I am a big time beef lover. I love a delicious ground beef meal, however, it often leaves me feeling a little sick in the stomach when I eat it.

So if you are anything like me, a healthier alternative is a good option. Lately I have been replacing most of my ground beef meals, with ground turkey. I honestly can’t tell the difference.

I can when they are plain, but as soon as they are in recipes, all I need is that ground meat texture, and it’s delicious.

This recipe could definitely be switched out for ground turkey, instead of ground beef.

We also recommend having brown or cauliflower rice, instead of white sticky rice. You could also eat this over zucchini noodles and it would be delicious.
