  • Tips for Using Your Meat Grinder

    There are a number of sites and YouTube videos out there that will give you best practices on grinding your own meat. Here are a few tips:

    Salt Meat before Grinding

    Salt dissolves some proteins and allows them to link easier

    Grind Your Meat Cold

    It is common knowledge that if you don't grind your meat cold it twill smear, giving it a "cooked, pulpy and dry texture." For this reason you should keep your meat chilled through the meat grinding process, whether that is in a refrigerated appliance nearby or another ice cold bowl. Even after your meat is ground, you should chill your meat immediately.

    Trim Your Meat

    One of the biggest things you want to avoid when processing your meat is Smearing. This can happen with your commercial electric meat grinder when your blade gets into contact with sinew, or bones making the blade become dull. Instead of cutting the meat, the machine just pushes the meat out through the holes instead of cutting it. This gives you chewed up texture instead of a smooth texture.

    Continuously Inspect the Meat Grinding Process

    Through the process of grinding your meat watch for things like smearing, sticking, and the texture of the grind. You can always use the reverse function or your electric grinder if it has that function to to fix some of these issues.

    Keep your Meat Grinder and Work Area Clean

    Avoid cross contamination, bacteria and harmful food borne illness by keeping your area and meat grinding machine clean. Also, sometimes during the process of grinding you might need to clean your machine to fix any issues.

    Keep Your Blades Sharp

    Dull blades can cause meat smearing and interfere with the quality and overall production of the meat. Typically you shouldn't have to sharpen them more than once or Twice a year.

    Grind it Twice

    If you are looking for a finer grind, start with a larger attachment and move to a smaller one.

    Immediately Season Meat

    If you are a restaurant you may want to season your meat right away. Once the meat is ground it will begin to absorb some of the surrounding smells and flavors. Adding seasoning and flavoring here may help to enhance the overall flavor.
