Gotta question about ground beef

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How fine do you grind your meat for ground beef: for hamburger, meat loaf, etc? Not for jerky, that's figured out. I've got the KitchenAid meat grinder ( for now) and I'm thinking the fine plate is too fine for grilling. Or is the one of those personal choices? We'll never go back to store bought hamburger. There is no comparison.

For me it depends on the cut I am grinding.

Chuck and round, I grind to medium (3/16th)

Sirloin, neck and rib meats I grind to fine. (1/8th)

I'm usually grinding chuck, but grind it twice. Once through a coarse plate and then a medium plate.

Thank you. It's chuck and round. Kinda what I figured.

with the kitchen aid I use the small plate and grind once on my larger grinder I use 3/16 or 4 mm still only grinding once. This way I get tiny chunks of fat that I can see.
