Works For Me Wednesday-Cooking Ground Meat
Let me be up front and entirely honest....I did not think this up. But I do use this tip I learned watching Rachael Ray. Where else?
Cooking ground meat can be such a chore, as you want to break it and up and have fairly, small, uniform sized pieces. And you could buy one of these to do it. But I am more along the Alton Brown philosophy about not having "uni-taskers" around the kitchen. You know, those kitchen tools/gadgets that only do one thing.
When cooking ground meat, I use just a wooden spoon to break it up in smallish size chunks and then when it's nearly finished cooking, I break up the meat with a potato masher. Works like a charm every time--nice little uniform chunks of meat.
Using a potato masher when cooking ground meat definitely works for me.
