This is primarily a preparation technique for recipes that call for browned Ground Beef. But can also apply to cuts you might thinly slice before cooking — think Flank Steaks. Once the beef is cooked, it can go into a variety of recipes. Check out our skillet cooking chart for recommendations and guidelines
Pull meat directly from fridge and heat a large, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. It’s important to have a large skillet so there's plenty of room for the beef to brown evenly. If your recipe calls for more than a couple pounds of Ground Beef, it’s OK to cook in batches.
Use a wooden spoon or potato masher to break the Ground Beef into crumbles as you’re cooking. Stir lightly to ensure even cooking. Depending on your recipe, you may need to brown the meat only lightly, because it will continue to cook later on.
Most recipes call for the Ground Beef to be drained after browning. In extra-lean Ground Beef, there may not be much to drain at all.
Now's the time to put that delicious Ground Beef to good use in your favorite recipe. Looking for inspiration? Check out Confetti Beef Tacos, Mediterranean Beef and Salad Pita, Wrangler’s Beef Chili and more.

We're not talking spices — in this case, seasoning is all about preparing a cast iron skillet for cooking. Methods may differ, but the end result of a well-seasoned pan is a non-stick surface and years (if not decades) of perfectly browned meat.
