All purpose Ground Beef Mix
All purpose ground beef mix is just that, a make ahead ground beef to throw into recipes on those busy nights when you need to cook, but have limited time.
5 lbs Ground beef, venison or turkey
1 tbsp Salt
1 tsp pepper
2 cup Chopped celery
2 cup Chopped onion
1 cup Diced green pepper
Drizzle a large skillet with olive oil *this depends on the fattiness of your meat, if you're using 90% lean ground beef or turkey or venison, you'll want the oil) if you're using 85% lean beef or less, you definitely will NOT want the oil.
Add the onions, peppers and celery and saute until the onions are translucent. Add the meat, season with salt & pepper and brown it until it's cooked throughout and no longer pink. Remove from heat, drain if needed. cool.
Measure 2 cups of mix into vacuum seal bag, seal, label and freeze. Repeat until all the mix is used up.
Use this mixture in any recipe calling for a pound of ground beef, just adjust the cooking time slightly because the meat is already cooked!
