3 Easy Ways To Grind Beef At Home – Meat Grinder Is Not Necessary!

grind-beef-at-homeGrinding meat at home is easy, once you have a grinder or a food processor, but gets a bit more demanding, if you want to grind meat by hand…

Nevertheless, we look into all of these.

Let’s get grinding! :)

Mince Beef With Meat Grinder

Also called a mincer. There are two types of those available on the market: manual and electric.

It’s easy to guess that electric is more powerful and can grind meat just so much quicker! However, manual grinder is far more reliable – my grandpa uses a grinder which is older than I am.

If you are into grinding your own meat and do it occasionally, you would probably prefer manual grinder – it takes far less space and you can easily hide it away, once you are done.

 Electric mincer is big, heavy and noisy, so take that into account.

So, let’s look at the process.

1. Beef. Sure enough, you are not to grind rib-eye and filet into beef mince. Any lower-end, in other words, leaner, tougher cuts (e.g. round, flank, chuck) are just ideal for grinding. Look out for any “braising beef” as well – it’s all the same thing.

2. Cut. Separate beef chunks into smaller pieces – it really helps the process.
