    How do you brown ground meat?

    For years, I have used a 3 piece casserole from Tupperware to brown ground meat in the microwave. It has a casserole-like bottom, a lid and a slotted insert made like a colander. It is great because all of the grease collects in the bottom and can be easily poured off. Also no grease splatters all over the stove like when using a frying pan. It is from the microwave line that Tupperware used to sell.

    It is starting to show its age, so I'm wondering where I could find something similar. I have looked at colanders and considered using it inside a glass pot, but grease reaches a high temperature, so a colander not meant for the microwave might not be a good choice.

    Any suggestions?

    I had no clue that there was something like that! I just pan fry the meat on the stove & then dump it into a colander to drain. LOL

    Remember Tupperware has a lifetime guarantee. Maybe they will replace it for you.

    I personally like to brown ground beef on the stove top, but if you really want a microwave solution, Pampered Chef has a microwave container that steams veggies, cooks chicken, browns beef. There's a lid that has holes in it for steam to escape and it also functions as a strainer. I've had good luck when I've used it to boil chicken, but I've never used it to brown hamburger though that is one of it's uses.
