Cooking frozen ground beef in a pressure cooker
This method drains almost ALL of the grease and fat away from the meat. It ends up at the bottom of the pot (seen below). SO you get leaner ground beef to cook.
I honestly have been doing this for quite some time. But since it’s such a simple thing I ignored the fact that I hadn’t written a post about it. Now I’m sharing this tip with all of you.
I think other than saving me a ton of time it saves those days when I’m forgetful. Dinner is saved!
Frozen Ground Turkey in Pressure Cooker
Typically I buy 80/20 ground beef, turkey or chicken would work just fine too. When we bought a cow earlier this year though I didn’t know what those were. For the most part they are rather lean.
Look! The fat drains away from the meat using this Instant Pot frozen ground beef method.
Combined with the water you add to the bottom, now you just dump it before you turn it to saute. Fat is gone!
Grass-Fed vs. Grain-Fed Beef
There are a lot of details involved when it comes to understanding the differences between grass-fed and grain-fed cows. The basics are that grass-fed beef is typically more expensive, but it is much healthier to eat. It’s filled with vitamins like B6, vitamin E, and vitamin A. The cows start their lives by drinking milk from their moms and grazing on grass and other edible plants.
Grain-Fed beef is much less expensive but doesn’t have the antioxidants and vitamins that grass-fed does. Grain-fed beef do eat grains and gets growth hormones. It’s basically up to you which one you prefer to eat.
