grind your own meat

I can’t say enough what a difference it makes to grind your own meat when making hamburgers, meatloaf, meatballs, chili, or anything else that requires ground meat. I use the KitchenAid Grinder Attachment since I already own a KitchenAid Stand Mixer and it does a great job.  It’s also easy to clean since it is removable and comes apart easily (and is dishwasher safe).

A few tips to get the most out of this attachment:

  • Trim gristle and large chunks of solid fat from the meat.
  • Cut meat into 1″ cubes and place in freezer for 15 minutes before grinding.
  • Chill the attachment in the freezer as well.
  • Check the grinder blade for gristle after each pound of meat you grind.
  • Test out the different size grinder plates to get different textures in hamburgers, etc.
