  • Test Kitchen Tips

  • Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.

  • Fresh Texas toast, buttered, may be used instead of frozen product.

  • Dill pickle chips or pickled jalapeño peppers may be substituted for pickled okra
