We get our taco meat from Butcherbox they are currently offering free ground beef through this link this month. We cooked just over 500g of beef in our taco meat recipe. If you want to cook more make sure it’s portioned out into another portion and sat on the shelf side by side. Otherwise, you will need to add on extra cooking time.
