Secret to Soft Browned Ground Beef

Ever wonder how to brown ground beef and get a soft, consistent result? It's easy! I use lean beef and Primo pasta sauce and am never disappointed!


  1. When browning ground beef (or pork), add about 1/2 cup of tomato juice or sauce per pound to the raw meat. Cook as usual. Results in a softer meat with no clumping. I often drain and use the juice from a can of tomatoes that is part of the recipe anyway.
