Food | Grind Your Own Beef

You probably think we’ve got too much time on our hands, sharing how we grind our own beef and all, but we’ve got the same 24 hours in a day that you do. 🙂 More on that later…

To make your own ground beef…

All you need is a food grinder; we use the Kitchen Aid attachment. Pickup a chuck roast that is nicely marbled. From there, cut it into chunks and toss into the grinder. Chris does a second grinding process in order to distribute the fat more evenly. Then season, wrap, and freeze.

We eat far less meat than we used to, and way less than the average American. Our latest $12 spent on two large chuck roasts yielded 6lbs+ of ground beef ($2/lb compared to 95% lean $4/lb) which will last us about 2-3 months.

Equipment used: Canon EOS 5D Mark II | Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L
