The Butcher Hook-Up: Ground Beef...

January 29 2008 - 12:20 PM

The next time you’re perusing your meat counter. If there happens to be a sale on, shall we say, top round (sometimes called London Broil) but you really only want ground beef here’s what to do. Buy the steak and ask the butcher to grind it.

You can even be more specific and ask for half tobogan hinchable ground and half ground twice. Use the twice ground to make some Iowa-Style loosemeat sammies, or shall we say (again), sloppy joes. Or Cincinnati Chili. Or, what I did, a modified Italian meat sauce with onions (see post below), fresh mushrooms, oregano (stem that oregano before using it!) and grated Romano. MMMMmmmmeat.
