A myriad of ways to cook Mince

100% Grass Fed Beef Mince

Mince would have to be one of the most versatile cuts of meat; it’s quick to defrost, is packed with protein and nutrition and can be used in a myriad of recipes that transforms its form and flavour depending on what you’re cooking.

Beef mince is beef that has been finely chopped with a meat grinder, knife or mincing machine and allows more of the beast to be produced into edible, useable meat. It’s generally made from the less tender, less popular cuts of beef or trimmings from tender cuts which are too small for other purposes. For these reasons, mince is the embodiment of nose-to-tail eating.

Although any cut of beef can be used to produce beef mince, we typically make ours from chuck, round and sirloin steak (aka. lean trimmings) combined with a large variety of cuts off the animal which are often not minced (wasted) by other butchers. This is why we hear all the time, how tremendous our mince is.

We also consistently make our mince at an 80/20 ratio, meat to fat, which not only means it provides all the benefits of eating grass-fed fat and beef, but it’s packed with flavour too. This is another comment we hear all the time when people try our mince and compare it with other types they’ve bought elsewhere. Our mince is renowned because of the rich flavour coming from the meat we use and the good meat-to-fat ratio giving flavour, texture and moisture.
