Since I was making ground beef I decided to go ahead and cook some of it for when I need to make a very quick meal. I decided to cook half of what I had made. There is very little fat in my beef. I need to add oil for cooking.
Of course I don't want all that oil to stay in the beef. It needs to be strained out. I put a canning jar ring in a bowl then set the strainer on top like this.
All the oil will drip out into the bowl. The strainer is higher than the bowl bottom so no oil can remain in the beef at the bottom of the strainer.
Now I have lean ground beef ready to be used in any recipe using pre-cooked ground beef. I don't know why the beef looks so dark in the bags. Tricks of the camera I suppose.
Then I clean up the mess created by my grinder. There are beef blood spots on my freezer two feet away from the mixer. A whole lot more spots landed on the floor. I gotta think of something I can make to prevent this.
