Ground-Meat Mix

This yields enough for two of these recipes (or you can double it to make all four): Glazed Meatloaf, Skewered Greek Meatballs, Moroccan Hand Pies, and Vietnamese Kebabs. This versatile mixture can also be frozen on its own, so you can complete the recipes another time.

  • prep: 10 mins
    total time: 20 mins
  • yield: Makes about 3 1/2 pounds

Ingredients

  • 4 slices white bread, torn into large pieces
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground chuck (80 percent to 85 percent lean)
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground pork (80 percent to 85 percent lean)

Cook's Note

Meat mixture can be refrigerated for up to 1 day.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Working in batches, pulse bread in a food processor until medium-coarse crumbs form (you should have 3 cups breadcrumbs). Transfer to a bowl. Stir in milk; let stand for 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, puree garlic and onion until smooth. Pulse in egg, 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper to combine.

  3. Step 3

    Mix garlic mixture into breadcrumb mixture. Add beef and pork, and mix until just barely combined; do not overmix. Divide mixture into 2 portions, and continue with variations.

    Not print friendly, and no way to save to my collections. All the good web-sites are really better.
