Do you have to brown the ground beef before putting it in the Suvie? It doesn’t specify? The picture looks like the ground beef is already ground before doing the broiling process.

Hi Nicole, you do not have to brown the beef before putting it in your Suvie. The broiling step will brown the beef before Slow Cooking. Hope this helps and let us know how the recipe turns out!

Hi Lola, sorry you didn’t enjoy this recipe. Added salt in the refried beans or taco seasoning may contribute to an overall salty flavor.
