Meat Grinder, Sausage Stuffer, and Slicer/Shredder

Recommended Posts

I got a couple toys to help in the kitchen. I got the meat grinder attachment, sausage stuffer, and slicer/shredder attachment for my bosch mixer. No action shots yet mailman just dropped them off today.

 

Here is the grinder. Comes with one plate and one blade.

Mixer has feet on the back to tip it on its side to mount the grinder.

Sausage stuffer attachments. Three sizes. Need to get some casings still.

Comes with 3 blades. Two of them are double sided. Other one is for larger cuts or french fries.

This is the dough hook and mixing bowl the mixer comes with. Kneads great for bread or pizza dough. Dough hook can also be used to mix meat after grinding.

Here are some pics of the attachments in action. Made some hash brown potatoes with the shredder. Shredded 5 large potatoes in about 15 seconds. Tossed it all in the mixing bowl for a few and into the cast iron skillet.

Then I ground up a 8 lb brisket flat and made burgers. Grinder worked great.

Cooked them on the Weber.

I tried my hand a sausage making today. Started with 4 pork butts. We made 5lbs of polish sausage, 5lb of Wisconsin brats, 10lb of hot Italians, and 10lb of breakfast sausage. Bosch meat grinder worked great. Sausage stuffer worked pretty good to. Used the dough hook to mix the meat.

 

Didn't get any action shots as I was too busy trying to figure out what I was doing. These are half of what is left after vacuum sealing them. Other half I split with my Dad.

Yup! Looks like Xmas came early for someone! :rolleyes:

 

Nice - I love toys - I've got an old Hobart meat grinder that's on it's last legs. Have to look into buying new & shiny! How'd those patty's turn out? Love the tater shreddar - I love hash browns! Never thought of making my own. Did you mix in any onions with them?

Mikey,

Mixed onions, salt, pepper, and cream of chicken soup into the hashbrowns. Normally they get topped with cornflakes and butter but didnt feel like it this time. Brisket burgers were very good. Not much difference from ground beef.

 

Raceman,

Yup. It the Bosch Universal Plus. So far I love it. I mixed a dough ball to make 6 14" pizza the other day. Mixer was working but it kneaded it well. That size dough ball would have been hell to knead by hand.

Does the chicken soup go in after the browning? Doesn't that make it a bit wet and mushy? I'm trying to visualize this. I love hash browns, but they are usually a little crispy when done.

There not really hash browns like you would get with breakfast. It more of a hash brown casserole. Here is a basic recipe similar to what I did but I used fresh potatoes instead of frozen.

I love WaWa hash browns - but they don't have onions (at least I don't seem to taste them). I have one every morning .. ;)

 

Interesting about the chicken soup - never would have thought that in a hash brown. But it's gotta add a lot of flavor! Man, is this Source nice or what? You learn so much here - even after all these years! :)

 

Thanks Vindii!

Speaking of which. My wife has a bad cold so I spent the the last 4 hours making her homemade chicken soup.

She just gave it the nod of approval.

Yep! That's the cure all for most colds, flu, etc. Well, maybe no cure - but certainly makes you feel better and one of the few foods you can keep down! Kudos for the homemade and not soup-in-a-can! ;)

Nice toys Vindii I still got moms old hand crank bench mount grinder, works good but does require the elbow grease, I assume your electric is dishwasher friendly?
