Cooking beef in skillet spatual contamination worries?

newbiefor1 | Nov 7, 201707:38 PM     18

When I cook ground beef in a skillet I always worry about using the same spatula or utensil.

I put the ground beef in the skillet, then I break it up with either a wooden spoon or a spatula.. But Then you obviously need to move the beef around to cook it. Do you use the same spatula to do this? Do I need to clean it off again?

Should I only worry about switching it out when its time to serve the meat?

I have a little ocd lol
