I always season my meat as it is browning, my SIL always seasons it after it is browned. Does when you add the seasonings make any difference to how the meat tastes?

I always season mine when I brown it -- the flavor is cooked into the meat that way.

Both. You want the flavors to cook in, but when you drain the fat off of the meat, you may drain away flavor too.

Just on the side, I made some lasagna with ground beef from the store last week.

I have never ground my own beef, but I have been wanting to...I just need to find my meat grinder.

Hmm, thanks. I usually brown my meat in a, I wanna call it a double boiler, its a part of my cookware. It allows the fat to drain off as it is being cooked. I've also learned to "over season" my meat, to make up for not adding any salt as I cook. Fools the husband, although I still hate the fact that he will add salt before he tastes it.

Once you grind your own, you will get spoiled!

When my store wouldn't or didn't have the homemade country style sausage all the time I bought pork tenderloin and a fater roast and ground them and seasoned my own turned out pretty good......I just used the food processor.....

Bad thing? I just dumped seasonings in next time I knew what I used just not how much so every time I make it is different....

LOL
