My tackle for this week is a pretty simple one. I got 30 lbs. of ground beef (Certified Angus thankyouverymuch) as a gift and my job was to package and freeze it. I took a picture of some of it while I was doing it since I never thought of it as a TT job until about half way through.
I cooked some of the meat in the crock pot mushed up in water. Sounds gross, I know, but it cooks evenly, no grease splattering and what fat there is gets poured off when you drain it. I'll freeze that in quart zip top bags so I can just pull them out and defrost for spaghetti, chili or coney sauce.
I also froze a lot of patties and 1lb. packages raw. I like to make my own meatballs for spaghetti and for sweedish meatballs.
My foodsaver got quite the workout! I love that machine!
So here it is!
