5 pounds of ground beef or turkey
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup chopped celery
You may substitute other vegetables to suit your family’s taste.
- Brown the ground meat and drain the grease. Add the chopped vegetables, cover, and steam. The vegetables should be a little crisper than what you would usually serve. Set aside to cool
- Spoon into freezer containers. Poke with a knife or fork to remove any air pockets. Cover with a tight lid and freeze for up to three months.
- Use in your favorite ground beef recipe such as chili, enchiladas, or casseroles. Thaw and add as the recipe directs for freshly browned meat.
Note: Spices lose their potency in the freezer. Add any spices during final cooking.
