Yep- I grind my own burger.
For a wedding gift, my husband’s family was kind enough to give us a KitchenAid stand mixer. I can’t recall ever using it for dough, frosting or batter. But I promptly purchased the meat grinder attachment and started grinding my own meat.
I buy larger cuts of meat and grind them up into hamburgers, meatloaf etc.Shown below is 2 1/2 lbs of chuck roast and 3/4 lb of boneless short rib.
This time around I put the meat through the bigger grind attachment first. (This size is often referred to as the “chili grind”)
Than I put it through a second time on the finer grind.
Than it’s time to break out the trusty “patty maker.”
I have no idea where it came from or how it got into my kitchen.
Probably bought it at a yard sale or maybe a hand me down from some roommate’s mother.
All I know is the patties cook perfectly. No dimple needed.
After this, package them up for the freezer and you have patties ready to go anytime you want one!
