A Kitchen Secret.

I am super weird when it comes to ground beef. Big chunks of it freak me out. I like mine crumbled into tiny little pieces, as chunk-less as humanly possible.

The other day I found a nifty little tool that turned my ground beef woes into ground beef WOAH'S!

Hardy Har Har.

I'm sorry if the sight of uncooked ground beef makes you gag. But you see that little doo-dad in the middle of the pink meat? That's the nifty tool I was telling you about. I'm not sure what it is called, but it turned my meat into this:

Horray! Tiny little meat chunks! Perfect!

I can't find a picture of my exact one online, but it is similar to this one by Pampered Chef.

Mine looks like an X on the bottom, rather than a swirly-doo. I found mine at Bed Bath and Beyond. It cost $7.99 and it rocks my world.

I don't think I can ever cook ground beef again without it. Til death do me part.

You should give it a whirl. You will thank me every time you make tacos.

This is not a paid review. I just really like it.

  1. I didn't realize they made an actual tool for this. I've always used my potato masher!

  2. A secret I learned from my grandma and mom- pour a little water in the pan and it helps break up all the meat. (then just drain the meat when it's done) I HATE big chunks of hamburger meat too, really grosses me out.

  5. I love mine...from PC. I accidentally ordered it twice because I have such an issue with meat. I've had it longer than BBB has or I would have gotten it sooner.

  6. That would be awesome when you are cooking the sausage that comes in the tube. That is always SUCH a pain to break up. Do you think it stratches up the pan?

  7. I have the one from Pampered Chef and I love it. It shouldn't scratch your pan. I've only seen these made out of plastic.

  8. I've seen that tool at Pampered Chef parties, and then tried a friend's, but I'm not a huge fan! I must be weird or something, but I can tear it up with a good old spatula! I feel less successful with that thing! :/ I'm glad it works for you! :D

    Thanks for sharing :)

  19. yeah, a potato masher works PERFECTLY!

  20. I need one of those desperately! I spend more time trying to get the meat into tiny little pieces than it does to actually cook the meat!

  21. I HATE chunks in my ground beef. I mash furiously with a fork the whole time it's frying!

  22. Yea! Thanks! One of my co-workers was talking about the Pampered Chef one, but I didn't know what she was talking about (what it looked like). Now I know! And yes, I hate big chunks, too...

  23. hahaha this totally made me laugh! Love that "big chunks of it" totally gross you out ha!! Glad you found something to help with that :)

  24. There is no possible way I could ever make tacos without that "ground beef/turkey pulverizing" tool! I've had mine from Pampered Chef for years and it is the greatest invention ever. Wish I thought of it! ;-)

  25. i think you may be on to something sister. the sight of chunks of ground beef don't give me the willies, but i think i may give the tool a whirl anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I got the Pampered Chef one from my mom as a gift. I love it! My husband thinks it's crazy ridiculous that there is a special gadget for breaking up ground beef, haha.

May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
