The Cooking Tip That Changed My Life

Well, it's not really that dramatic, but I want to share it with you. Tricia mentioned that she does "Big Shop Cooking." The part that I have latched onto is buying a huge amount of ground beef and putting it in the crock pot as soon as I get home. I buy 10 pounds at Sam's, put half in the crock pot, turn it on high and add salt, pepper, and onion powder. I stir it now and then, keeping an eye on it. I usually get 80/20 so there is enough grease to keep it moist. Then when it is done I bag it up (using a slotted spoon to get it out of the grease) and freeze it. I just did 5 pounds tonight and now it is ready for a quick evening meal. I love that!

This was the cooking tip that changed my life too! I just took it a bit bonkers and now do chicken, ground turkey and ground beef that way :) Kim W. was the one that first gave me the tip. What a difference it makes.
