How do you...

How do you drain browned hamburger?

This is very unprofessional, but I push all the hamburger to one side, spoon the grease into a tin can, and then wipe down the pan (with the hamburger still in it) with a paper towel, and then pat the hamburger with paper towels...

The lids to my pans have "draining" holes on them. I cannot tell you how much easier this makes life!

I've used Dani's method before... works prett well. I also have a really 'tight woven' (for lack of a better description) strainer that I put the meat in, then dump the grease out of a the pan into a can. -- this is nice if you're wanting to rinse the beef.

I use to use "Dani's method", but then one of my friend's had a great tool to use. It is a hand-held strainer. So it's not a bowl that you pour into, but it is a strainer that you hold up on the side of the pan and drain into the can. The one my friend had fit a large frying pan perfecty, and she said she got it at walmart. I couldn't find one there. I did find one that fits pots at a different store so I push the hamburger down to one side of the pan & use the strainer.

place a plastic (tupperware is great) colander over a glass or corelle bowl. Pour the panful of cooked hamburger into the colander. Put the pan back on he stove and pour the colander of meat back into the pan. The grease will all be in the bowl and easy to take care of.
You can even cook the hamburger in the microwave in the colander with a baking dish or bowl under it. The meat will cook and the fat will draib.
