I saw this several years ago on the internet that if you have a cut of beef, you can stick it in a blender or food processor to turn it into ground beef. I used sliced venison to make this ground venison. My venison was also completely thawed. Many recipes tell you to use frozen meat for this because your meat will come out more grain-like and less mushy. I can say that it did come out a bit mushy for me, but thankfully I wasn’t using it for burgers or meatloaf, so the texture was really no problem since i was just browning it to put into a recipe. If you are using this meat for one of the above mentioned items, I would freeze the meat or half freeze it to get clean cuts, but if you use it in something else like me, it won’t make a big difference.
- Turn out frozen or half frozen meat into a blender or food processor. Secure the lid.
- Pulse until all large chunks are gone, and the meat has a consistent small chunk appearance.
- You can then either re-freeze, or begin cooking your dish.
