Not all beef mince is created equal. Here are 3 easy rules to keep in mind when shopping for mince.
It's not something you usually think much about, but good mince makes a world of difference when you're cooking. Here's 3 rules to look out for to make sure you're getting premium quality beef mince:
- Keep It Good
The meat in premium mince is fresh, using quality meat and good fats. This is simple - but the most important and easily ruined.
- Keep It Clean
Premium mince has no tendons, bones or hard spots in the meat. It may create what's commonly known as grizzle.
- Keep It Lean
Have some fat but don't over do it. What you want here is a 85% -90% VL (visually lean). So that's 90% beef - 10% fat.
Keep these three rules in mind when buying mince. Mince is supposed to be good and the difference when using premium mince is phenomenal.
