Beating the high cost of Hamburger meat

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I don't know about all of you, but it is getting hard for me to pay $5.36 a pound for Hamburger meat here in my area. I found 2 Rump Roast on sale at my local market for $3.28 a pound,, so guess what I did?





I ran them through my grinder and I now have 6 pounds of fresh Hamburger meat. Yippeeeeee.

Same around here Hamburger is getting way to high, When I get my grinder I'll be doing the same thing

Now that you're grinding your own meat, you'll never have the need for pre-ground stuff again. There's nothing more satisfying that knowing exactly what's going into your meals. That's especially important when you're buying mystery ground meats from the market.


Good find on the price!!! I can usually find chuckie at $3.99 around here on a regular basis, but that's still way high compared to our $1.49 a lb pork butt.

I know, it's nuts. Normal people don't really know where Hamburger meat comes from. Most of it is processed from cut offs. When butchers process their prime cuts, they take the trimmings, run them through the grinder and BAM, you have Hamburger meat.

Well last night I browned 2# of my fresh ground Hamburger. When I finished I drained and did a weight check. I had 1.20# of meat. Made some really good tacos with it. The family was pleased. Purpose of this thread? I will not buy prepackaged Hamburger meat again.
