Growing up, I loved it when Mom cooked a beef chuck roast because I knew there would be beef salad sandwiches to follow. I don't know where she got the idea of doing this with left-over roast beef, but I'm glad she did!
Mom used an old-fashioned shiny clamp-on galvanized meat grinder, and I did also for many years. It is a great tool for grinding meat, vegetables, nuts and fruit that is cheap also. If you’ve never used one, the first thing that will get your attention is the weight of it, about 5 pounds. It’s unbreakable and durable.
The handle attaches to the grinder with a nut; the ‘worm’ is the spiraled part of the grinder that moves the food to be ground through the body. Attaching either the coarse or fine plate and then the screw ring gives you a perfect tool for grinding meat and so forth. The main thing of concern was that the clamp at the bottom holding the grinder to the counter or table was very tight. If not, it started sliding and could fall right off the table. In reality, this is the best tool for grinding meat and all perfectly!
