Default Chuck Roast + ? (s)= Delicious Burgers

I have boneless Chuck Roast that I plan on Grinding for burgers tomorrow. What other cuts can you recommend to grind with the Chuck Roast ? I have heard of Sirloin and/or Short Ribs. I am thinking of grinding some Bacon as well.

Thanks.

Chuck has a really good mix of beef and fat. I have mixed in Sirloin for flavor, and I liked it. I have not tried grinding short ribs, so I have no idea how that will work.

If you have not tried it, I would say that a mix of chuck and sirloin is worth trying. I like it.

Many of the Brethren use ground brisket in burger, but how can you go wrong with some bacon in your paddy ?

Chuck will taste great as it is, if you wanted, a little Bacon is always a plus!

If you use short ribs,trim em first? There is no wrong or right.Spearmint til you hit what you prefer.Sirloin,brisket,chuck,bacon,short rib or any combination,just remember,no fat,no flava,know fat,know flava.Do NOT buy into the less fat hype.If you want juicy,TASTEE burgers go a MINIMUM of 70/30 meat to fat.(just my opinion.)

definitely add some pig candy, you'll be glad you did! Here's what I did the first time I grinded my own meat:



That's top round on the left, short ribs on the right, and pig candy up top. It was awesome but it would have probably been better with chuck rather than top round. I've since ground chuck with bacon and then a whole brisket. I'll never buy ground meat again!

I usually go for ribeyes to grind up for burgers, but chuck plus whatever should be a great start.

We have been very happy with just chuck. I trim all the hard fat and then just go for it! Nothing like a home ground burger.

My wife has concern about the bacon and it won't cook thoroughly. Should it be a concern ? Thanks.

Try venison if you can get some. 50/50 mix is good because the venison is so lean you need some fat to keep it juicy.
