When buying ground beef, I usually buy a 10 lb. roll and bring it home and divide it up into my own freezer bags in whatever size package I want. Saves time at the grocery store as well as saving me a little money for buying the larger amount.
I do that also and often brown a good portion of the meat with seasonings that I like and package it in sandwich size ziplocs for the freezer. What a timesaver when getting a meal on the table fast. (11/06/2004)
I also like to get a bulk amount of ground beef when on sale. I don't have a big family and while it was an initial investment the FoodSaver is a blessing. I have had ground beef in the freezer for months without any freezer burn. I either leave it raw or take the time to brown it off. That way it's ready for any seasoning you want to add once it's reheated.
