What is the proper way to drain ground beef?

>> No.9664997

I always rinse it, but I hate greasy shit.

>> No.9664999

That's supposed to be ground mince? What the hell do they do to mince in America that's disgusting

>> No.9665005

No it's sausage . Maybe it looks weird because it's all natural

>> No.9665011

It comes precooked in a big plastic container. You have to drain the fat from it. Also it comes frozen in a roll precooked. You have to heat it up and drain the fat.

>> No.9665015

What the fuck is that? That looks like pork mince? I thought American beef and pink sludge memes were just memes,

>> No.9665018

Put the ground beef in a strainer over a bowl, when you're done use a funnel to pour the grease from the bowl into a can or empty jar and toss it out.

>> No.9665020

tip the pan and let the grease pour out

>not using the fat for cooking

So many unnecessary dishes...
Do this >>9665020 directly into the can

>> No.9665029

you could just hold the strainer out the window and let the fat drip to the ground, and then you have less clean up. the animal and plants outside eat the fat so its not like its messy

>> No.9665032

This. I like a proper drain too, anon.

What does good ground beef look like? That looks exactly how I would expect it to when it comes out of the grinder. Little worms.
Show me a pic of good cooked mince.

whatever fag.

I save coffee cans and just drain the excess grease into those and then throw them out when they start to get nasty so I don't even have to worry about another bowl to clean.

He just broke up the meat too much in the pan, retard.

>> No.9665341

if you "Broke it up too much" parts of it would be smushed, every grain of this seperated individually, i think he cooked it from frozen

>> No.9665348

Either way, it wouldn't reflect on the quality of the meat. The grind size does look a bit smol tho.

Get edumicated flurgoat pour the grease in a glass and chug that shit

>> No.9667168

Tip the pan and scoop out the grease with a spoon

>> No.9667173

In my household growing up we always just tipped the pan and poured it down the drain. Never had any problems or clogs or whatever, I guess we had a garbage disposal with an effective grease trap. In college I lived with people who always insisted on pouring it in a can, including one guy who actually saved the can in the freezer until it got full. He said you could cook with it or something. I think the difference is that he came from a very poor family who probably had bad plumbing and couldn't afford to waste the fat.

Nowadays I'm a little skittish about just pouring it down the drain, because that does seem like it would be bad for the drainage when you think about it, so I like to push the meat over to one side, tilt the pan, and soak up the grease that spills out with a paper towel that I can just throw away (or compost I guess if you're into that).

>> No.9667186

I don't drain it, I use leaner beef grind and let it rest for 30 minutes after mixing with baking soda. This let's the beef hold more of the fat and dry out less. Usually only end up with about a tablespoon of fat left and nice chunky bits of ground beef.

>> No.9667188

That's cheap walmart beef

>> No.9667234

when do you add the baking soda?

>> No.9667250

Before cooking, I also use it to glaze turkey and boil broccoli for brococheese soup. I don't remember the science but it's my secret ingredient.

>> No.9667275

you can use baking soda to drastically reduce the time required to caramelize onions, tried and it worked. something about the base soda accelerating the reaction. only a tiny pinch of it was needed, too much makes them mushy.

>> No.9667330

then you are paying for ground fat not meat.

You're fucking retarded. They look nothing alike. I've cooked all kinds of beef mince and at no stage, no matter how you cook it does it ever look anything like OP's picture. I think all the beef in my country is grass fed though, so maybe that's what dogfood tier beefmince looks like.

This guy is right

So unless it's a dry aged ribeye, you really can't tell?

>> No.9669828

That is what the article is saying, yes. But they add that grass fed tastes more "gamey" and *AS* rich and buttery as grain-fed.

So basically grass-fed = gamey. And that is what all the farmers around here say too.

>> No.9669831

Hmm okay I take it all back, that site and a few others with niggers that know seem to think the primary differences are fat/leanness and gamey/soft flavors. Apparently grass fed has more variation in taste. Still its better for you right, or is that a meme too?

>> No.9669842

The fats in grass fed are considered to be on the healthier side of the spectrum, but if you're eating enough meat for it to make a difference, you've got bigger issues than whether it's grass fed or not

>> No.9669870


>draining ground beef

Why the fuck would you do that? Do you hate flavor or you're trying to become Zyzz 0.5?
