Top 5 Meat Grinder Recipes I Like The Most
For our first choice from this list of 5 best meat grinder recipes, let us start off with the most important meal of the day! There is nothing more important than leaving your home with a full tummy and content taste buds.
With the help of a meat grinder, make yourself and your loved ones some breakfast sausage. For this, you will need-
- Your choice of meat of at least 3-4 pounds
- Salt to taste
- Half a teaspoon of sage
- Half a teaspoon of white/black pepper
- A teaspoon of sage, ginger, and thyme
- Half a teaspoon of red pepper seasoning
- A quarter or half cup of warm water
Firstly make sure to always trim off the excess fat from your choice of meat before putting it into the grinder. There is not much to do after this as the gears inside and plates cut up the meat into sausage sizes.
After grinding, simply mix all the ingredients together and cook the sausages on a non-stick pan for a few minutes on each side!
Chicken patty burger
If you want to go for a low-fat meal, then chicken should be your favorite choice of meat. This protein stuffed meat can be turned into delicious burger patties with only a few steps-
- 3-4 ounces of solid chicken breast
- 1 egg white
- 2 small onions finely chopped
- Half a cup of kale
- Greek yogurt to taste
- Salt to taste
- Ground pepper to taste
- Olive oil
- Bun/pita bread
- A slice of tomato (optional)
- Lettuce (optional)
Remove the excess fat on the chicken breast before grinding. For patties, it is better to grind the meat on medium so that it stays a little chunky and feels chewy.
Afterward, mix all the ingredients with the ground meat except the optional ingredients and bun/pita bread. Fry on low heat on a nonstick pan for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Decorate the bun/pita bread with your choice of toppings. Add the chicken patty and voila! You get low calorie and protein friendly chicken burger within 10 minutes.
Who does not like chewing and sucking on a beef jerky on a hot summer day? To make these delicious goodies, you will need-
- A pound of beef
- A teaspoon of garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder
- 2 teaspoons of canning salt
- A quarter of ground pepper
- A quarter teaspoon of ground ginger
This time, mix all the ingredients and beef in a bowl before you grind it. Afterward, use the finest meat grinder plate for grinding the meat. Roll the beef into 1/8 inches each.
Keep the oven pre-heated to 250 degrees with wire racks on a baking sheet. Place the beef rolls on the baking sheet with the oven door slightly ajar. Rotate the baking sheet every now and then to make sure the beef jerky gets cooked overall. Cook for 3 hours or so in total, or till juicy.
The next dish on our 5 best meat grinder recipe list is a childhood favorite. To make delicious meatballs, you will need-
- Olive oil

- 4 extra ounces of meat fat
- 5-6 chopped garlic cloves
- Salt to taste
- Two and a half teaspoon of chili paste, fennel seeds, oregano, anise seeds
- Cheese to taste
- 3-4 eggs (beaten)
Mix all the ingredients (except the eggs and cheese) and meat in a bowl and grind with a fine cutting plate. Mix the ground meat with the cheese and eggs afterward so it’s wet and chewy.
Form the meat into meatballs in your palm and place them on preheated baking sheets of 400 degrees. Bake for 10-20 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Serve hot with sauce or ranch.
Simple Ground Beef For Rice
For our last recipe on this list of the 5 best meat grinder recipes, we are going to go for a lazy recipe! If you have leftover garlic or chili rice left in your fridge, spice it up with some ground beef and lemon juice.

- Quarter cup of brown sugar
- Quarter cup of soy sauce
