Maiden Grind

After finally scoring a meat grinder attachment for our Kitchen Aid mixer (Thanks Mrs. H!), I used it! I have had countless inspiration for this from a number of sources (Andrew, Dave & Mike, I’m talking to you!) I recently picked up Charcuterie too , so I am excited about some of the possibilities awaiting me.
My Maiden Grind
This grind was nothing special. I had some leftover ribeye from ManNight and decided to make burgers. Let me rephrase that, fat-laden burgers. Wow. Sorry about the only “uncooked” meat pictures. Or as I like to call them, potential.
Potential
Now on to the hog casings I have in the fridge. I can’t wait!

Now that you've got your meat grinder, let me welcome you to the dark side! You can't go wrong with any recipe in charcuterie. The burgers looks great

Mike said...

Nice! Now that you've started, there's no going back. Looking forward to the first sausage pics!

Shit... and here I thought I was going to get to see a picture of you grinding on some young maiden.

Oh, well. Burgers are cool, too.

I've had my Kitchen Aid grinder for about 7 years. And maybe one day I'll take it out of the box...

@Andrew - Thanks...I can't wait to dig in. The dark side certainly feels nice!

@Mike - I am dying to make sausage. Although, I need to get an actual sausage filler. I am resisting going cheap by using the kitchen aid attachment. I want to do it right.

@Ewtotel - This so does not surprise me!

@Dustin - You should! At least for burgers...but knowing you, there are million other things you would think of!

I picked up a 5 lb. grizzly sausage stuffer from Amazon for $50, but I don't see it there anymore. This one should work:

Thanks Andrew! And for the record, you were much too fast with that! It's Zoe's birthday week, so I am trying to NOT spend money on myself!!
