I don’t know what took me so long to learn how to make crispy ground beef. I’m sure we all remember that chewy beef in your tacos from overcooking the beef or not adding enough oil. Don’t let those memories destroy your thoughts on ground beef!
This simple tip will help ensure that you have crispy ground beef every single time. Honestly, I just eat the beef on its own instead of baking it into other dishes. Are you ready to read this tip? You’ll face palm yourself after reading it.
The way to make ground beef crispy is to….NOT TOUCH! Once you put that beef on the skillet don’t touch for a solid 3-5 minutes. This gives it time to develop a crust on the beef. You’ll need a good layer of oil too.
My two favorite oils for pan frying meat is either avocado oil or coconut oil. Trust me you won’t taste the coconut! Once, you beef is cooked this is when you can add your seasoning or add it to another dish. This is a great recipe for tacos, sloppy joes, stuffed bell peppers, or anything you fancy. I love to pair it with purple sweet potato fries or in a sweet potato hash. Ready for some crispy ground beef?
