Ground Beef Tips
Store properly wrapped ground beef in the coldest part of the
refrigerator (36°F. to 40°F.), use or freeze within 2 days. Ground beef
can be frozen in its original transparent packaging for up to 2 weeks.
For longer storage, rewrap ground beef tightly in heavy-duty aluminum
foil, freezer paper or plastic freezer bags and store up to 4 months at
0°F. or lower.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 C. chopped onions
1/2 t. fresh garlic minced
1 t. salt
fresh black pepper
1/3 C. ketchup
1/2 C. chili sauce
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. fresh lemon juice
In a bowl, mix together beef, onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Shape into 6
patties, about 3/4 inch thick.
Brown the patties in a large skillet over medium high heat. Turn once.
Mix together remaining ingredients and pour over the patties. Cover and simmer
for 15 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the patties occasionally.
Serve the patties on buns with some of the sauce.
