If they are going to recommend draining the meat on paper towels, just use 85% lean ground beef. It will add more flavor. Also, an alternative might be to use a mix of 50/50 ground beef and ground pork. Pork can really add a lot of flavor.

I agree with another reviewer that it was difficult to make and ended up being kind of bland. Next time I would add real onion instead of scallions only, maybe some fresh basil, even some red pepper flakes. It's a great base recipe that just needs tweaking. Fairly easy and freezes well!

This took quite a few pans and quite a while to make, for a pretty bland result. It's very hearty, warm and filling, but definitely lacking in flavor. I won't be making this again.
