Then I moved onto the new meat saw grinder. I broke it.
Two days old, and kaput. Not happy. Dad ripped it apart and fixed it. Shoddy craftsmanship. Probably made in China. It's not likely to break again any time soon though!
I don't usually do ground beef, preferring stew. Ground beef is pretty cheap at the grocery store, however, the sheer size of this job was daunting. Doing ground beef was much less time consuming than trimming all of the fat for stew.
We decided to skip the ribs- we aren't fans anyway, and instead trimmed off all the meat for ground. Along with the shanks, the flank that didn't get used for jerky, and bits of trim here and there, it really added up!
I have one quarter left to do today, and then tallow and stock to finish.
