Simplify Meal Prep with Batch Cooking Grassfed Ground Beef
Here’s a simple action tip you can most likely accomplish at some point this
week! When you are about to cook a meal including some ground grassfed beef, instead of
pulling out just 1 lb. of ground beef, pull out 4 to 6 lbs. Cook several pounds ahead and freeze some to use for future dinner recipes like: spaghetti sauce, tacos, casseroles, quick soups, and oh so much more! Season the meat as
you cook it (with italian seasoning, taco seasoning, or salt & pepper) or leave it plain
depending on what kind of meals you’ll use if for in the future.
The method: After cooking all the meat in a big skillet, label quart or gallon size
ziploc freezer bags. Take a measuring cup and portion out 1 lb or 2 lb portions in the
bags. Lay them flat in the freezer to store (Laying them flat makes them quicker to
thaw for the future).
