We browned half of it - this is 5 pounds spread out to cool before we bagged it up to freeze:
And we made the other half into taco meat:
The biggest problem is what to do with all that grease! Seriously. How do you get rid of that? We decided to let it cool completely and then put it in a double freezer ziplock bag, freeze until trash day and then throw it away. Hope that works.
As always, my favorite part is seeing the results at the end! Lots of small portions of turkey ready to freeze and use for dinner:
We realized that we should have done the taco meat first because the meat with sauce takes a lot longer to cool down before you can bag it up. The regular browned turkey cooled really fast. We got about 10 cups of the browned turkey from 5 lbs of meat and 9 cups of taco meat from 5 lbs of meat.
And the house smells like tacos this morning! Time to open up the windows...
