    Looks like a good recipe but I am curious. Why fry ground beef in olive oil? Even lean ground beef has its own fat and is usually drained after being fried. Some people even rinse their ground beef after frying to remove more fat. I realize olive oil is a healthy fat… I have never heard of this before. Thanks.
