Frequently Asked Questions

Is ground beef gluten-free?

It is indeed! As a celiac-safe food, ground beef can be added to any recipe as desired. Always double-check labels watching out for any beef with added ingredients such as seasonings or broth.

What ground beef do you buy?

In our home, we cook with lean 90/10 ground beef. If using 80/20 or 70/30 ground beef, drain any excess fat to reduce the total fat content while preventing the recipe from becoming greasy.

How to cook ground beef?

Add the ground beef to a skillet and carefully break up the meat into large chunks. Let the chunks of beef cook for approximately 1 minute. Then, break the chunks into smaller pieces and let cook for approximately 1 minute. Repeat the process of alternating between breaking up the ground beef and cooking for 1 minute until the ground beef is no longer pink.
