De-grease Your Hamburger

Roy and Mary Fralick.
Grease in hamburger (or any other meat) will cause the meat to go rancid especially if you want to dehydrate it.

An easy way to get most of the grease out is to start with ground round or and of the better grades of meat. Fry it in a pan until completely done, put it into a colander and run or pour boiling water over it several times to remove any remaining grease, drain well and place on paper towels to remove the water. When cooking with meats prepared in this way spaghetti, chili, etc. will have much less grease to skim off.

For storage use a zip top bag or a vacuum seal then refrigerate or freeze. Low fat meats can also be dehydrated then vacuum packed for storage without the need for refrigeration.
