How to save money on ground beef: My normal method of

saving money on ground beef

is to look at sales circulars each week to see when it goes on sale at a great price. Selling prices are going to vary greatly from area to area, so just take notes on what the price is each week for a few months and when they drop, buy several pounds at the best price. For me, when ground beef goes on sale for $1.99 per pound or less, that’s when I buy 25 pounds or more at a time.

Plus, you can save money on ground beef by grinding your own! We often watch sales of quality cuts of meat like roasts of meat (the chuck roast makes burger meat tasty) and then use the meat grinding accessory in our Kitchen-Aid stand-up blender (or standalone meat grinder). Then, pack the meat and freeze it for long-term storage.

To save even more time, we like to cook some of our burger meat, rinse and drain (to remove fat) and freeze it already cooked. This is ideal for pouring into soups and other dishes.

In fact, in

most dishes that use hamburger in the slow cooker, the recipe will require the burger meat to be precooked. This is because you need to remove fat and crumble meat for soups, stews and stews.

The exception for this, of course, will be dishes like meatloaf, dumplings, and other dishes where ground beef is formed into a shape.

What type of burger to buy:

The burger is usually sold by fat content here in the United States. You will often find the detailed fat content on the package in percentages.

92% Lean to 8% Fat 90% Lean to 10% Fat 85% Lean to

    15% Fat 80%

  • Lean to 20
  • % Fat In

most cases, the higher the fat content of the meat, the less expensive it will be. However, when you factor in cooking, browning, and fat drainage, you’re left with less real meat. So, we think it’s a better option to go ahead and spend more money on less fat meat as you’ll end up with more meat and usable product.

How to drain excess fat from cooked

hamburger meat: When draining

fat from

cooked ground beef, it’s best not to pour the grease down the kitchen drain, as this often leaves a buildup of grease in the pipes overtime and ends up being an expensive repair by a plumber. Instead, drain the grease into a container, let it cool and solidify, and then dispose of the solid grease in the trash can.

Use other meat besides

ground beef:

Feel free to substitute ground turkey, chicken, venison, or even bison in almost any dish that requires ground beef. The taste and texture may be a little different, but it should still be tasty!
