plop about 2 lbs. of ground beef and a bunch of onions, green peppers and carrots into a cast iron skillet and let it do it's magic.  Once this is all cooked and cooled, divide into quart size freezer bags.  You'll be so glad to have these on hand!  Pull out to add to spaghetti sauce, sloppy joes, nachos for unexpected company... the list is endless!
