Ground Beef Tips
Ground beef packages are labeled according to U.S. Department of
Agriculture standards and by supermarket preference. Lean to fat ratios
vary, however, if a package is labeled ground beef, it must be no more
than 30% fat.
A bright, cherry- red color indicates fresh ground beef. However, fresh
ground beef goes through a number of color changes during its shelf
life. A darker, purplish- red color is typical of vacumn- packaged
ground beef or the interior of packaged ground beef which has not been
exposed to air. Once exposed to air, ground beef will turn from darker
red to bright red.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 package of onion soup mix
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. garlic fresh chopped
fresh cracked black pepper
Add the ground beef to a mixing bowl. Mix in the onion soup, Worcestershire,
garlic, pepper and a couple of drops Tabasco to taste.
Shape into 6 patties. Broil or grill patties until done to desired doneness.
Place patties in buns and top with your desired toppings.
