Is it OK to mix ground beef and ground pork

Answered By: Gavin Edwards Date: created: Sep 18 2021

Dont be afraid of the fat; it adds flavor and, because this recipe isnt specific about amounts, you can add more or less of whatever you prefer. Combining pork and beef also makes the mixture less dense than if it were beef alone.

Should I put breadcrumbs in a burger

Answered By: Dennis Jenkins Date: created: May 27 2021
