People Are Horrified That This Woman on TikTok Washes Her Cooked Ground Beef
We’re all for living a healthy lifestyle. Eating healthy food and exercising on a regular basis are good things, wonderful things in fact. Sometimes, though, people might take eating healthy a bit too far.
TikTok user @eemilydharperr posted a video to demonstrate something she learned in a nutrition class. She proceeds to start cooking a package of ground beef. At first, everything seems normal. She cooks the beef in a pan on the stove and then moves the beef to the side to show how much grease is in the pan.
Here’s where the video gets controversial. @eemilydharperr calls the grease “gross” and recommends getting rid of it. Then she proceeds to demonstrate how she gets rid of it: by rinsing the beef in the sink and washing the grease down the drain!
Twitter user @poetatoeboi shared the video along with the text “death penalty.”

Many Twitter users have jumped on board complaining about the video because it is either a horrible waste of grease or horrible for the pipes connected to the sink.
It means stop buying more than you need. If you save that grease you can use it to flavour soups, sauces, anything where you need a little extra beef flavour. WTF do you think beef stock is?

Okay. Trans fats are bad for you.Saturated fat (the kind pictured here) are good for you. They’re vital to hormone production and nerve health.Grass fed beef has better ratios of omega 3 to omega 6 fatty acids as well. Which are anti-inflammatory.

This is disgusting on so many levels. The high rise I manage just had to replace 8 feet of pipe because it was so packed with grease from idiots putting it down the sink it couldn’t be snaked anymore. People…do not put grease in the sink.

Interestingly, some people have been bold enough to defend @eemilydharperr’s video.
Uhhhh? My entire family does this and the meat is literally still good. I can’t believe everyone doesn’t do this??? Y’all be out here drinking greasy ass meat????

I don’t understand? My family’s done this forever, at least when it comes to stuff like making tacos, pour the grease out, rinse in water, add it back to the pan with a little bit of water and the seasoning, mix and then let it simmer and evaporate the water

Have you ever drained the grease from ground beef and washed it down the sink?
