Washing all meat is an important first step, but many don't wash ground beef. Once you try this, you'll never go back!


  1. Place the ground beef in a large bowl.
  2. Cover with water (not too hot or meat will start to cook) and break up with hands.
  3. Place several thicknesses of papertowels in a colander.
  4. Pour out the ground beef into the colander.
  5. Taking the edge of the paper towels, press firmly and squeeze out all the water.
  6. Try this over a glass bowl so you can see what you're taking out!
  7. Now when you cook the ground beef, you won't have to drain any fat. Some remaining water will just sizzle away.
