We don’t have a clue what goes into preprepared foods nowadays. Companies combine all sorts including fats, skin, large blood vessels, intestines etc. to create our sausages, burgers, minced meats on sticks, meat balls and other foods. We have to trust that all these foods are above board and safe to eat until the next food scandal that is. For those of us that care about what goes into our bodies there is good news. I have found the perfect device to help make making your own our own burgers etc. simple so we no longer need not rely on companies whose main purpose is to make money over and above their customer’s health.
I recently got my hands on the Eddingtons Mincerpro! This super kitchen gadget is great to help me make a wealth of home cooked meals and this way I know exactly what is going into my food. With the mincer I control all ingredients within my recipes including fats which is great and helps me keep my meals healthy.
It was love at first use with the Eddingtons Mincerpro, not only was it simple to use and clean but it also enabled me to make the most amazing Thai inspired recipe EVER!!!!! If you love Thai you will love this, even if you don’t you’ll probably love this as it is literally bursting with flavour, super simple to make and tastes in a word AMAZING!!!!!
Simply clean the machine and you are ready to get mincing. The machine can be taken apart and washed in a dishwasher which is very convenient. Ready to use it? Simply pop pieces of chicken breast pieces into the top of the mincer and push down with the meat pusher.
Turn the handle and out comes the minced chicken.
This is really easy to do and you don’t need to press down hard to get the chicken to travel through.
And finally one of my favourite recipes ever:
