As a good lover of traditional and healthy cooking, a meat grinder cannot be missing from my kitchen. With this fantastic utensil I make meat for my stir-fries, meatballs, meat pies, filling for empanadas, sausages, steak tartares and hamburgers.

I like to chop the meat at home adding to the mixture the type of meat that I most want and in the quantity that interests me. I almost always add some of my favorite ingredients like garlic, pepper, cinnamon, cloves, mushrooms, wine, etc. to give another flavor to my recipes and give a touch of originality to each preparation. And you know what? That everything tastes much better if I prepare it at home!

I normally use the Kitchen Kraft manual meat grinder . It is ideal for preparing minced meat, hamburgers or sausages. It is made of cast iron. It is very easy to fix with great security to a surface, and very comfortable to work with. Includes three chopping discs of different sizes and a sausage maker accessory . It is very easy to prepare them, even if you want your children to help you cook, it is a fun proposal for them to help you in the kitchen. You will see how they will like to be your pinches!

Sometimes I have to chop large amounts of meat. That is why I have theMoulinex meat grinder stored in a privileged place in my closet.

This mincer has a high performance motor that helps me to mince very quickly. Its use is very simple and it costs nothing to transport it. I trust this brand a lot, because it always offers me very satisfactory results. When I have time, I chop up fairly large quantities and then freeze the meat in portions. When I feel like a stir-fry for the spaghetti or make a filling for empanadas, I already have my portions on hand in the freezer. Sounds like a super handy trick to me!

Another idea to take advantage of the food processor is to prepare another dish: when I have leftover food or part of a preparation: I grind it and et voilà! I get a totally different dish.

And you buy the already minced meat? Do you have any star recipe? Any tricks I should know?

You already know that I love sharing my experience but also learning from you! :)
