Ground Beef & Ground Turkey Recipes

Ground Beef & Ground Turkey Recipes

Most of my ground beef recipes call for regular cheap ground beef to be cooked, drained and rinsed in hot water. This turns regular ground beef into extra lean ground beef without the cost. You may substitute extra lean ground beef or ground turkey in any of these recipes.
