This recipe is a really great freezer recipe and saves you a lot of cooking time on busy nights. I discovered the original recipe in a Taste of Home cookbook called Freezer Pleasers several years ago. I have changed it quite a bit over the years and developed my own version that freezes well and tastes great in recipes calling for ground beef.
This recipe is great for pre-cooking your ground beef and then freezing it in 1 to 2 pound packages that are all ready to use in recipes like chili, spaghetti or tacos. I always keep a few packages in the freezer – they are a real time saver on a busy day. The meat can be quickly thawed in the microwave or placed in your refrigerator to thaw the night before or in the morning.
