Browned and Seasoned Freezer Mix

4 lb Ground beef
1 1/2 ea Onion; chopped, large
3 ea Cloves garlic;minced
2 ts Salt
3/4 ts Pepper

Cook and stir meat, onions and garlic in Dutch oven until meat is brown. Drain off fat. Stir in seasonings. Spread meat mixture in 2 ungreased baking pans, 13x9x2 inches. Freeze 1 hour. (This partial freezing prevents the meat from freezing together solidly.) Crumble meat mixture into small pieces; place in heavy plastic bag or freezer container. Seal securely and label; freeze no longer than 3 months. Use freezer mix in the recipes that call for it. NOTE: You can use this mix in any recipe for drained, seasoned browned ground beef. Each 3 1/2 cups lightly packed frozen mix is the equivalent of 1 pound ground beef, 1/3 cup chopped onion, 1 small clove garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and dash of pepper. (If mixture is not frozen, allow 3 cups.)
