In a previous post, I showed you how to prepare chicken breasts and steak to make your life a little easier. I recently purchased a few pounds of 96% lean ground beef, so I thought you might want to see an easy way to prepare it for individual packaging.

Packages of 96% lean ground beef

Packages of 96% lean ground beef

Gather your packages of 96% lean ground beef along with snack size ziploc bags.

100 Grams of Lean Ground Beef

Weigh your ground beef and divide into 100 gram portions. Place each 100 gram portion into a snack size ziploc bag and set aside.

Flattened Lean Ground Beef Divided Into Snack Size Bags

Flattened Lean Ground Beef Divided Into Snack Size Bags

Seal one side of your baggy and flatten ground beef in snack size bag, pushing the air out as you go. Once your ground beef has been flattened and the air removed, seal the remainder of the bag. I found this tip two years ago on the GreenLiteBites blog while I was on Weight Watchers. This is a very smart idea. The bags lay flat in the freezer, they defrost rather quickly, and they don’t take up much space. You can also stick them into a box or paper bag and cut out part of the side’s bottom so that you can pull out one package at a time… like a dispenser.

I saw a recipe for hot ‘n sour cabbage soup on one of the HCG yahoo groups, and I decided to slightly change it up a bit. As a result, this is what I came up with:

Hot ‘N Sour Cabbage Soup

100 grams of chicken breast or 96% lean ground beef

1/4 cabbage, shredded or chopped

16 oz. low sodium fat-free chicken broth

1 cup water

1 Tbl. lemon juice

2 Tbl. apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg’s. It’s the best!)

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

black pepper to taste

crushed red pepper to taste

Cook your meat. Place cooked meat in a small pot with remaining ingredients. Cook on med heat until cabbage is tender. This makes a very large bowl of cabbage soup. No need for any added salt due to the chicken broth. If you are worried about the sodium, replace 1/2 of the chicken broth with an additional amount of water.

Servings: 1 (You get to eat the whole thing!)
