Keeping it Safe
Be sure to thaw ground beef safely. Keep the meat wrapped and thaw it on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator, not on the counter top.
Garnish with chopped tomatoes and green onions just before serving. Serve with a mixed green salad for added color and texture.
Storing Ground Beef
Store ground beef in the coldest part of the refrigerator for up to 2 days. (The refrigerator temperature should be no higher than 40°F.) For longer storage, wrap the meat tightly in foil or freezer-weight plastic wrap and store in the freezer. When thawing, place the meat on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator to prevent any drippings from cross-contaminating other foods.
