No Pink Slime Here


Want to avoid Pink Slime?


Grind your own beef!

You want to make sure you’ve got some fat in there, otherwise your burger will end up on the tough side. 

But really, if you’ve got a grinder, or a grinder attachment for your stand mixer, there’s no reason for you not to make your own ground beef for burgers, meatloaf, etc.


And that’s the end of my public service announcement.

  1. Hi kathi, as I understand it, the best blend for getting the juiciest, most flavorful burgers, is a blend of chuck and sirloin, and you want to make sure there is a good amount of fat, otherwise youll end up with dry burgers. Also, when you grind (or use the food processor), you want the meat to be partially frozen so the fat doesnt melt during the grind. Im still new at this, so bear with me as I go along!

  2. Thanks! I got a grinder attachment for my KitchenAid for Christmas. My husband thinks I’ll never use it, but I’ve been planning.
