Tuesday Tips-Ways to make life easier. Today I’m sharing an easy way to drain the fat from cooked meat without having to call the plumber!
I often cook ground beef, but I don’t want to leave all of the fat in the meat. Pouring the grease down the sink is a sure way to have to call the plumber within a few weeks to unstop the sink, so I started doing this:
I place the colander into the metal bowl and place the entire “contraption” into the sink. I then pour the cooked ground beef and fat into the colander and allow it to drain for a few minutes.
After a few minutes, I move the colander with the ground beef back to the skillet and I carefully pour the grease left in the metal bowl into a recycled glass jar. Once the grease has completely cooled, I throw it in the trash. No more clogged pipes!
