Hamburgers for one?

Japanecdote | Jun 23, 2013 03:55 PM

I live alone and I'm craving hamburgers. I bought a pound of ground beef not too long ago and froze it, and I'm defrosting it in the fridge now to make Mapo tofu tonight. That'll only use about 1/4 a pound, though, so the rest will be for hamburgers.

Since I'll only be able to eat one a day, what's the best way to preserve the ground beef? Can I mix it with spices, make it into patties, and refrigerate the patties? Or is it better to cook it and then refrigerate?

I know I can't freeze it, as I've already thawed the meat once.
