Making tacos from a kit tonight. I know – how pathetic. But I just got finished making some fabulous scones for a P.E.O. meeting tomorrow and this is easy. So here’s my tip: when you use ground chuck and it says to “drain” after “browning” – don’t. Most people cook ground beef until it’s gray, not brown. Keep a’going. Really brown the meat until it’s, well, brown. The fat will help that happen. And the meat will absorb it. So don’t drain – you’re taking the flavor out of the meat.
