A Little Ground Meat, Please

Cook ground turkey, chicken, or beef in a large frying pan or saucepan. Add your favorite seasoning and then let simmer for several minutes. Cool and put cooked meat into a freezer bag, laying the bag on its side to flatten before sealing. Place flattened bag onto a cookie sheet and put into freezer until frozen. Then remove cookie sheet.

Now, when you need just enough of your favorite cooked meat for tacos, stew, sloppy joes, etc., you just "snap" off the required amount and put the rest back into the freezer. This is a great time-saver!

I do keep pre-cooked ground meat in my freezer, but I prefer to keep prepared meals in my freezer. I make up large batches of sloppy joes, taco meat, chili, meatloaves, cottage pies, chicken strips, veggies, etc. and wrap 'em up into individual and family size portions, then freeze 'em. Whenever I need a quick meal, I can just defrost, cook or reheat & eat, depending on what the food item is (some I pre-cook & some I just prepare). I just recently bought an infrared oven and with it I can take items straight from the freezer & cook them in the oven w/o defrosting first, plus the food often cooks in half the time than if I was using my regular oven.
