How to - draining ground meat

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient


Many cooks who use ground meat in their recipes want to drain off the excess fat that accumulates in the pan as the meat browns. Tilt the pan so the fat will accumulate on one side and blot it with wadded-up sheets of paper towel that you hold with tongs. This way, no meat spills from the pan, and a maximum amount of fat is removed. If using a gas burner, be sure to keep the oily paper away from the flame.
