Tips from our cook: especially for the kids - ask mom or dad to cook an extra pound of lean ground beef ahead of time. After drippings are poured off, separate the ground beef into four plastic baggies and keep in the freezer. These can be taken out of the freezer, reheated in the microwave, and used in this recipe for a short cut.
