Besides stubbing my toe, nothing enrages me quite like accidentally buying a low-fat version of a product I love. I still haven’t forgiven myself for the Low-Fat Sour Cream Incident of 2016, and I don’t know that I ever will. A similar rage almost overtook me recently when I grabbed a package of extra lean ground beef instead of my usual 80/20, but then I remembered the magic of ground pork.

Whether you stocked up at a sale or bought time on a looming best-by date, you very likely have some ground beef in your freezer. It seems so useful, like such a good starting point for so many recipes, but when have you ever remembered to defrost frozen ground beef in advance? Then you've got to brown it or cook it through before it goes into your pasta dish, casserole or taco shell. It's not such a time-saver after all.
