The Best Way To Cook Ground Beef

To bring out the best flavor of ground beef 
you need to treat it like a steak and Sear It!
This method will forever change the way you
cook hamburger for sauces and chili. 
Season one side of the flattened beef and put
that side into a hot, lightly oiled skillet. Leave it
 without breaking it up until it develops a nicely
 browned bottom (about 3 minutes). Season the
top side and flip it with a large spatula. Now
let that side brown. Drain off any excess fat.
You should already be smelling a familiar
grilled steak aroma. Better, yes? 
Now start breaking it up with the spatula
and continue to brown the meat all over as
 you normally do. Add the garlic or onions or
whatever your recipe calls for. 
Continue making your sauce, chili....and

  2. Thank you for this tip. I will try making this next time.

  3. Great post! Grey food is not appealing. I am been reading about this technique. The cheffy term is "mallard reaction" and is really what Anne Burrell means when she says brown food taste good. I can't way to try this.
