I like making ground beef with taco seasoning as a quickie meal, and was planning to this week but we only really use about half of the meat. Could I save the other half in the freezer (already cooker) and use it later?

I do this all the time-right now, I have it in invididual servings for quick lunches.

Yep, we do it all the time. We usually buy the massive pack of ground beef from Costco. We hold out a little bit to freeze raw and the rest gets browned. Some of the browned is frozen plain and some is seasoned and then frozen.

It's a huge help to be able to pull out a 1/2 lb or pound of already browned meat.

So do you thaw it out in the fridge and refry it, do you thaw it and microwave it?

Thanks for the help

I do this all the time too. You could reheat it either way. If you use a microwave, that's fine; if not, I'd put it in a pan with a little water and let it cook until the water evaporates (i.e., no need to add more fat to refry it).
