How to Grind Your Own Beef Burgers

How to Grind Your Own Beef Burgers

1. Purchase flavorful and inexpensive cuts of beef like skirt, flank, sirloin, chuck, and chuck eye.

2. Cut the beef into small cubes, trim any silver skin or tendons, season well with kosher salt and freeze for one hour.

3. Place the beef into a food processor with 1-2 strips of bacon for added flavor and fat.

4. Pulse the beef a few times until you have a course grind. Do not over chop, a few small chunks of steak is all good.

5. Portion the beef with a large ice cream scoop and flatten. Season with a little fresh pepper then fry or BBQ to medium.
