Bella,

Getting the store to grind the meat is a good idea. I'm new to this forum, so there is obviously some inside stuff going on here which I don't understand. The bottom line is blenders don't make good ground beef. Food processors could be used in a pinch as SM says, but you have to be very attentive. Meat grinders work best.

I don't agree with that, Berno. I use a food processor all the time to chop things - it's called "pulsing." I also do things like pesto in the blender. No air issues. And in a pinch, I've used a blender using the same technique. A blender is much more difficult, but the downside is not about aeration.

In the distant past, I remember actually using a food processor once or twice to chop meat for hamburgers (adding other ingredients also). It is not nearly as good as grinding meat, but it's possible to do it and still yield a decent burger. The essential problem (in my experience) is not about air, it's about shredding the meat too fine - the texture is all wrong. Just my two cents.


I didn't say that about anything besides meat. You're absolutely right and the point I forgot to add, about the texture being crappy. Food processors and blenders a great for other foods. Not for meat, unless you're making pate or something along those lines.

Uhhh... aren't you forgetting who we're talking about? She ran over steaks with an SUV to tenderize them, couldn't follow a simple marinara sauce recipe (and then blamed the person who provided the recipe), and marvels over salmon with cheddar cheese...

Can't you just let her use her blender to make burgers out of ribeye steaks? I'm seriously pissed you guys have talked her out of it.

EXACTLY what type of "penetration" are you referring to? I think that you are on the wrong board. I have nothing against homosexuality, I have a gay uncle, and I have many gay friends, but I do not think that this board is appropriate to discuss these issues Wink

Sounds like we could use a cross, a wood stake, and Buffy right about now...

This thread is hilarious! LOL! Big Grin Eek Big Grin

She also burns her eggs b/c she cooks them on high heat as they take too long too cook Confused and she doesn't want to spend all morning cooking eggs.

Bella - go for the blender. Not one person on here can say that they have actually tried "blendering" a ribeye and making hamburgers out of them. Until someone attempts this, no one will no for sure if it can be done!

This is so calling out to be video taped. Maybe you can make enough money to goto culinary school with the cash you will make selling the tape to Funniest Home Videos. I can see it now.

The rib eye goes in, oops forgot to remove the bone, back in sans bone, hit ice crusher, it spins a few times, binds up, begins to smoke out of the base, while reaching to unplug it, it tips over, the top pops off and then it kicks in and sprays meat all over the kitchen.

Can you say CHA CHING !!!!!!


The blender still spinning, smoking, meat everwhere and Bellas first thought is, man it was so much easier in the car than in the blender......
