No more setting ground beef on the counter to thaw, no more worrying at meal time because you don’t have thawed ground beef, it is really convenient! 

It saves a bunch of time when doing ground beef recipes. You can even do oamc so that you have cooked hamburger at all times. Add onions to it and you can freeze or can it.


  • Cook-  Manuel high pressure,
