(NPR)   Hey, "food activists," remember that "great victory" you won a while back in getting "pink slime" burger meat taken off the market? Well, guess what. Hey, enjoy your hamburger, douchebag   (npr.org) divider line 21

Good, we can have some regular priced hamburger again.

I don't see what the point of this was.  It's not like the people eating ground beef give a shiat about what they're eating.  Ground chuck - maybe.  Ground sirloin - probably.  But ground beef buyers simply want the cheapest cow-like substance they can shove in their gullets.  Give the people what they want.

"Pink Slime" as they call it is just very finely ground beef.  There is nothing wrong with it.

As long as it is cheap and can be grilled, there will be a demand for it.

Not worried about it.
here in Vermont, every town has a local store where the local butcher cuts up steaks and puts the lean trimmings in the grinder for fresh ground beef.
And the chicken breasts? fresh, not frozen.

Well fine, as long as no animals are harmed.

whoa, subs apparently really likes low quality beef and really hates anyone who tries to interrupt that supply

"Cargill spokesman Mike Martin says the product is 100 percent lean beef trimmings.."

And there I stopped reading, since this came from a spokesman at Cargill (aka, "We make a fortune selling unsuspecting people highly processed food-like substances at huge mark-ups") and because those "trimmings" used to be called garbage.

they whined about pink slime, yet these yahoos still gobble down hot dogs like they are pulled that way from the pig (or, pig/cow/turkey).

\OMG THEY GRIND UP THE MEAT TO MAKE IT EASIER TO PROCESS!
\\hurr.

...So by the end of March 2012, Cargill's "finely textured beef" had incurred an 80 percent decrease in volume. "We ultimately were forced to close down two of the production sites"...

Boo-hoo-hoo.  Fark you, Cargill.

/Good for you stores who won't start selling it again.  That's what gets you customer loyalty.

Made the 'mistake' of having a full cow processed for us by a farmer:  It RUINED store 'meat' for us.  Seriously - the shiat is so foul-tasting now, we can't bring ourselves to purchase it - steaks and roasts aren't so bad...but store hamburger has a very nasty taste now that we got 'spoiled'.

Find good roasts on sale and have the butcher at the store grind it up:  That helps...but it still makes me sad...as that hamburger from the small farmer was delish!!!

HERE you uncouth, plebeian, philistines

Burger of the Gods

8 ounces chuck, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
8 ounces sirloin, trimmed, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


In separate batches, pulse the chuck and the sirloin in a food processor 10 times. Combine the chuck, sirloin, and kosher salt in a large bowl. Form the meat into 5-ounce patties.

Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Place the hamburger patties in the pan. For medium-rare burgers, cook the patties for 4 minutes on each side. For medium burgers, cook the patties for 5 minutes on each side. Flip the burgers only once during cooking.

At a Fareway grocery store in Ames, Iowa, Craig Riecken is picking up a few items. He says he quit buying hamburger at this store at the height of the scare.

So he switched to another store to buy his hamburger, where he can pick out steak and have it ground right there. That's even though Fareway never sold ground beef with the product in it and still doesn't.


And this basically sums up how consumer awareness works.

in our rinky town, the local supermarket actually grinds the meat themselves to make hamburger.  its quite delicious.  their sausage is also the best tasting store-bought sausage ive had.  but your right, farm raised and butchered beef has a flavor that you will never find in a supermarket.

Considering how nutritional studies are continuously finding previously unnecessary minerals, elements, etc. to be necessary, that product will just put people in the hospital with questions arising as to why, for lacking what they don't know it needs to include.

The term used for the fish equivalent is "fish sauce", or so I've heard.

If you're already buying factory farmed beef from the supermarket, and you're upset about pink slime, your priorities are way the hell out of whack.  If you really care about the quality of your meat, find a local farm that raises grass-fed and free range without using hormones or unnecessary anitbiotics. Otherwise, you're making a big fuss over nothing.
