GOODe GOODEness: Seasoned Ground Beef

Tonight I thought I'd share my basic Seasoned Ground Beef recipes because it is soooo hard to make ;P Lol!

Really it is super easy--I was just foolin' and truth be told it is just the best little foundation for tons of meals.

I made LOTS of it during FREEZE-O-RAMA--both for recipes to freeze like my Beef Stroganoff (to be shared soon), Brown Bag Burritos and Lasagna as well as to freeze to use in fresh Chili, Spaghetti, Deep Dish Pizza, etc.

First I started with chopping up tons of onions

and I do mean TONS

And then some...

Don't cry... I froze some onions too.

If you are doing a small batch, you will need 1 onion per 1 lb of ground beef.

Then I minced up LOTS of garlic

If you are doing a small batch, just mince up a couple cloves per 1lb of ground beef.

Now that the GOODes are prepped...


I grabbed a couple griddles and threw several lbs of beef down... a beef smack down ya could say :)

and several more...

Then began the seasoning...

Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper

Then the onion and the garlics ;)

Keep stirring until browned...
Then drain if necessary.
I use extra lean ground beef, so there is nothing to drain ;) Mommy score!


Note: Cool before freezing if you make extra ;)

2 GOODe Thoughts:

i dont see a recipe to print for season ground beef? just the items you put in help me here.

You place the ground beef (1lb beef, 1 Onion and 2 Cloves Garlic and multiply X number of lbs you want to freeze) in a skillet and fry up until browned through. Cool and place in freezer bags to freeze. This is also a part of the site that still needs updated.
