With the high prices of everything it's hard to stay within budget lately and eat the same favorite meals we love. One item we all know that has gone up is hamburger meat. I use it for so many dishes. But for a while I had to cut back on our beef meals until I thought of a better way in today's current high prices.
Let's say you do some freezer cooking and pre-prepare meat for future meals like spaghetti sauce or lasagna, or a veggie beef soup,sloppy joes etc. You can make it go far by pre-prepping and doing this trick I thought of!
As you know the grease from the beef as you fry it all together will mix in with the turkey. Where as the turkey due to it being low in fat will not provide a lot of grease to flavor the beef. You can still drain your grease after cooking if you like but your little bit of beef WILL flavor your turkey during cooking. Therefore you will have a larger amount of ground beef now for half the price you would of had to pay per pd buying all those pds of beef.
My family got tired of at one time eating all ground turkey meat to try and save. So when I tried this they love the dishes much more because it tastes like beef now! They love it and it saves!
Happy furgal homemaking!
