How to Make Grind your next burger........
- I usually see what's on sale, and that's what I grind. Trim off any excess fat you don't want as well as gristle, and NEVER grind bone. Also where the meat comes together a lot of times there is a thin layer of membrane, it's best to remove that as much as possible, it will get wrapped around your cutting blade and make it more difficult for the meat to pass through the grinder plate, and you need to stop and clean it off of the blade more often.
- This site sells grinder blades and replacement parts for older KA stand mixers as well. I've ordered grinder plates from this site. You may be able to find them cheaper on others sites, but I have not purchased from any other site, so I can not recommend them.
- NOTE: If grinding a lot of meat, it might be wise to stop about half way through and clean around the blade. While your grinding, if you start hearing the meat do a kind of snap, crackle pop sound, it means there is gristle or membrane around the blade and it is struggling to grind the meat. So it's definitely time to clean it. FYI, turn your KA sideways or away from you while grinding, it keeps from "spitting" meat juices on you while your grinding.
