Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Shortcut
Use a small ice cream scoop with a release mechanism to easily shape meat mixture into balls. The scoops lets you shape the meatballs without using your hands so there's less chance of spreading bacteria from the raw meat around your kitchen.
Tip 2
Variation
Prepare using extra-lean ground beef and long-grain brown rice.
Tip 3
Purchasing Ground Beef
When purchasing ground beef, always check the label to ensure that the meat has been ground on the day of purchase. If you can't use the meat immediately, wrap it tightly and freeze until ready to use. For best quality, use within 2 months.
