- A video of a girl rinsing mince meat in the sink after cooking it has gone viral on social media
- In the clip, the girl says that she does this because the grease that comes from the meat while cooking it is "disgusting"
- Social media users around the world weighed in, with some agreeing with her and others not being able to understand why
A TikTok user shook everyone on social media when she shared how she prepares her mince meat. The user (@eemilydharperr) shared that she learned the technique in her Nutrition class two years ago.
The video was reshared on Twitter by user (@poetatoeboi) who simply captioned the video "death penalty", clearly bothered by the way the lady decided to cook her mince meat.
In the clip, Emily is frying mince but after some time, she decided to take it out of the pan and rinse it with water in the sink. She said that she did this because the meat is simply too greasy.
When she is done rinsing the mince meat, she captions the video:
""Look at the difference."
The video was trending on Twitter and gained over 100 000 reactions from people all over the world.
Social media users were shook at the act, trying to wrap their heads around why someone would rinse the meat in the sink after cooking it. Others, however, were in agreement with what she did.
Briefly.co.za complied a few reactions:
@terriperozzi said: 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.
@BunnyQueen3 commented: "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."
@Komafyy said: "She really said “look at the difference!” like she didn’t just strip every last drop of flavour out of that."
