It is super easy. All you need to do is turn on your crock pot onto low and allow it to heat up for 30 minutes.
Open up your package of meat (5 pounds) and put it in.
Add in 1 cup of beef broth. If you have no beef broth, just add in 1 cup of water. The meat will still turn out flavorful and good even if you use water. It is just a bit more so with beef broth.
Put the lid on the crock pot and leave it alone for 2 hours. After 2 hours, I stir up the meat and add in 2-3 T. of dehydrated chopped onions. You can add in salt, pepper, garlic powder, seasoning salt or whatever seasonings you prefer at this point. I only like to season my meat with onions because I use it in all kinds of dishes and only onions works best for all the meals I cook.
After you add in the onions or whatever else you plan on adding in, stir again and replace the lid and allow it to cook for a few more hours. After the meat has been cooking for about 4 hours total, it is time to drain the meat and divide it up into freezer safe baggies. Easy-peasy.
*****NOTE***** If you are using frozen hamburger meat, allow it to cook for 3 hours before stirring for the first time and allow it to cook for almost 8-10 hours total.
The prepared hamburger meat goes great in tacos, Cheeseburger Casserole, Pizza Lasagna, and my Sloppy Joe Tater Tot Casserole.
Other things I like to keep my freezer stocked with to make meal times easier include: Make Ahead Hamburger Patties, Freezer Biscuits, and Freezer Meal: Sweet 'n Sour Chicken.
