If you're like me and try to save some money shopping at bulk warehouses like Costco then here's a helpful tip to speed up dinners on evenings when time is tight! You already have all your veggies cut up & mixed in so just empty into pan and cook it up! Great for casseroles, chili, tacos, spagetti, pizza, burgers, you name it!
- 5 -6 lbs ground beef (or ground turkey)
- 3 -4 medium onions
- 2 -3 green peppers
- 2 red peppers (optional)
- bell peppers or celery or garlic or mushroom, etc., if desired
- Chop up veggies using food processor. (Or by hand if you prefer.).
- Mix together all ingredients in large mixing bowl either by hand or using mixer until thoroughly mixed.
- Seperate meat mixture into equal 1 lb. portions and divide into freezer bags. (I use my Food Saver to vaccum seal them.).
- (Sometimes I also cook a few pounds until browned and freeze. Simply pop into fridge in the morning to defrost or defrost in microwave or hot water and add to your meal of choice!).
I didn't use this exact recipe. My review was actually intended for another OAMC recipe for the same thing. OOPs. I think I will use this one next time though with the addition of celery and maybe even zucchini. I like the idea of "hidden veggies" for the health benefits as well as to stretch the meat. I am so glad that this is cooked and in my freezer. It's such a go to convenience item. I have frozen in 1/2 lb. since there are only 2 of us. Such a time saver. I prefer to have mine cooked and then frozen. I thought this cooked up easily. I was worried that it would cook in very big chunks but it didn't. It was actually easier than 1 lb at a time. I just used a big stock pot.
