Draining ground beef for tacos is a simple process that involves removing excess fat and grease from the meat. Here are the steps to follow:
- Cook the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat until it’s fully cooked. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break up the meat into small pieces as it cooks.
2. Once the beef is fully cooked, tilt the skillet to one side to allow the excess fat and grease to collect on the opposite side of the pan.
3. Use a large spoon or ladle to scoop out the excess fat and grease from the skillet. You can also use a colander or strainer to drain the beef, but be sure to place it over a bowl or sink to catch the fat.
4. If you’re using a colander or strainer, transfer the beef back to the skillet once the fat has been drained. If you’re using the tilt-and-scoop method, simply continue cooking the beef in the same skillet.
Season the beef with your desired taco seasoning and stir until it’s evenly distributed.
Serve the drained ground beef in taco shells or tortillas, and add your favorite toppings, such as shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and salsa. Enjoy!
