Cooking Tip - Draining Fat From Ground Beef

We had spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner tonight. I almost always make my meat sauce from scratch with tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, ground beef and/or Italian sausage, mushrooms, minced garlic, basil, oregano, and onion flakes. Sometimes I add chopped onion and green pepper.

To remove as much fat as possible from the ground beef pour the cooked meat into a colander or spaghetti strainer while still hot. The fat drains from the meat, cutting the fat content in the sauce.
