Waiting on my Grinder #Charcutepalooza


Never thought I’d be so anxious for kitchen gadget shipment. But it’s been nearly a week since we ordered our first meat grinder and I’m getting a little impatient. Heck, it’s not just a meat grinder. It can also make pasta!

Yeah, I thought that sounded weird as well.

But when the Charcutepalooza May challenge called for grinding your own, our trusty Men’s Journal roundup of the best grinders for your buck came in pretty handy.

Meet the Norpro #151 Grinder/Mincer/Pasta Maker – which, according to the foodie scribes at MJ is “tiny, inexpensive, and made of plastic, but when Chernow and Holzman test recipes at home for the Meatball Shop, this is what they use. Thanks to a sharp blade, ???it works effortlessly,??? said Holzman. ???We ground 40 pounds of meat a week with the Norpro, and it never got dull.??? Plus, the suction-cup base keeps the diminutive body steady. ???It???s perfectly engineered,??? said Holzman. [$30; norpro.com]

Nothing says Happy Mother’s Day like freshly ground pork or beef right? I’m hoping to put this bad boy to the test for the Mom’s Day brunch I’m in charge of – either a sweet breakfast sausage or sassy chorizo.
