After browning beef and draining, how do you dispose of the fat?
When I was a kid my mother would always poor it into an extra tin can and throw it out. So that is what I always do.
The reason is that if you poor it down the sink it will emulsify and build up to eventually clog the sink, causing ongoing hassles. Fat is not a very good conductor of heat too, so once it cools down it will not get washed away with hot water.
Is there an easier way to dispose of the fat? I hate been forced to cook a can of something each time i need to brown beef.
