Ground beef is fucking gross

We all know the term “lips and assholes”, generally associating it with hot dogs. Well friendo, you might just be eating more of that stuff that you actually realize. I used to work as a Meat Cutter in a very well known North American grocery chain. At one point, I was the new kid, which meant it was my duty to grind all the meat. Some of this meat was made out of the leftover trimmings from all the steaks we’d cut the day before. The majority of it was these 10 lb cylindrical vac packed bags of beef. This stuff came from the supplier and was a mix of already mixed meats, made up from whatever the scraps were from when they processed the animal. You’d open up one of these bad boys and this stagnant stench of bagged beef blood would hit you in the nostrils and damn near make you gag. This stuff was rank. Who knows what this was in this stuff? Sure, it was 100% beef, but it was intestine, tripe, scraps from lame cows in the feedlot, etc. This was not ‘good’ meat. This is the shit that they scrape up off the floor after they slaughter it, drain the shit and piss out, semi-grind it up and pack it off to be turned into ground beef. The grocery store then grinds it into what you see on the shelves. There’s no question that this stuff carries mad amounts of E coli and salmonella.

Between 2003 and 2012, there were almost 80 outbreaks that fucked up 1,144 people in the US due to contaminated meat, 5 of which died. And that’s just the cases that were reported. That’s fucking disgusting.

E coli is a fucker. On top of making you shit and vomit uncontrollably, It can damage your gut lining, permanently and create all sorts of health problems like Kidney failure, cardiovascular disease, strokes, etc. Fuck. That. Shit.

There’s a way around it, though. Either grind it yourself, or get the butcher to.
A Chuck Roast is a perfect chunk of cow to make a killer burger out of. 

If you don’t have a meat grinder, simply cube it up into 1 inch cubes, throw it in the freezer for a bit till it’s semi frozen, but not fully, and then throw it in a food processor. A quick blitz and you’re good.

The fat to muscle ratio in it will naturally make the tastiest burgers you’ve ever eaten. That’s a guarantee. So you can save the eating assholes part for the bedroom, and not the BBQ.
